Hope you had a good weekend. I’m feeling a bit off with the time change, but this DIY project using gold glitter is sure to help! We made this handmade sign for our Indie I Do booth last January using paper, some fishing line, glue, and glitter! Customize your message for parties or booth displays!
things you need: cardstock, computer, printer, scissors, fishing line, glitter, glue, tape.
Choose what you wish to say!
Determine the size you wish your banner to be and print out the letters using your computer.
I’m sure there are plenty of fancy tools that can help you, but I just hand cut the letters on to card stock. The banner pictured above took me about 1-2 Gossip Girl episodes to complete (don’t judge me!).
Cover your table with newspaper to keep the glitter mess to a minimum. Using spray glue (I bought this at Michaels) or a glue stick, spread the glue on one side of the letter and dip it in the glitter. Make sure that your letters are the right side up to ensure that your letter is orientated correctly (The letter ‘p’ and the letter ‘d’ can be tricky!).
Shake off excess glitter and let dry.
Here comes the difficult part! Line up your letters from right to left with the non-glitter side facing up. Measure a long piece of fishing line across the entire banner section making sure you give yourself extra string on both sides of the banner for tying. Use tape to secure the fishing line and lift the banner up gently to make sure that everything is secure (you may need more tape). For a lower case ‘i’, we used a toothpick to hold the dot in place.
->> For a simpler method, you can also hole punch each letter prior to glittering and string up each letter individually instead of using the fishing line! <<-
For Wedding Wednesday, I decided to change it up today and show you our finished booth design from Indie I Do last weekend. My current crush is with the colour gold and with a can of gold spray paint and a bottle of gold glitter, I was pretty invincible!
Our booth was an eclectic mix of DIY and vintage items. What we didn’t already have around the house was crafted specifically for the show… gold spray painted zoo animals + pomegranates, glitter signage, and lots of neon confetti! Booth design is always a challenge and as a service based company, in this case, wedding planning, it is sometimes hard to portray what you do without coming across as a decorator. I’m super happy with how everything turned out and we didn’t have any confused brides wandering through our space, so that’s two thumbs up in my books!

Welcome to the second edition of Wedding Wednesday pins! I picked up some gold spray paint the other day to finish off some DIY projects for my Indie I Do booth (pictures soon!) With all of that sparkle and glitter, I can’t help but be inspired by the colour of gold.
