How to Make a Glitter Letter – Video Tutorial

glitter monogram tutorial-1 copyI’m irrationally frightened of cameras. Probably why I always the one on the other side of the lens. But Angie Holden from Country Chic Cottage and Carolina from 30 Minute Crafts have convinced me that you guys LOVE seeing video tutorials on how to make stuff. I’d love it it you leave me a comment to tell me that you really like this tutorial delivery system–or that you prefer the picture by picture method.

As part of Crafty Hangouts this month–all about crafts you can make for under $10, I made a video sponsored by Consumer Crafts (a really awesome craft supply spot online) showing how to make a fun glitter letter or monogram party prop. Or a prop you could put on your shelf. Honestly, with the glam little glittery letters, I did both! And in the video below, I show you how–in real time!

Thought this was kind of fun, so plan to do lots more of these. Please do follow me on my YouTube channel!!

I’ve also used them as photo props–and they’re great on party buffets! Lots of ways to use these letters.

Consumer Crafts Giveaway Prize

You can find the supplies I used to make these letters at Consumer Crafts – the sum total of what I spent per letter making these was less than $3, so it’s an inexpensive prop to make in addition to being a super easy one!

But wait, there’s more! Consumer Crafts has this huge basket of crafty goodies up for grabs – worth $150! Just give a few clicks below to enter. Open to US residents.

These are so beautiful and I love the video - I always learn better when I can see someone demonstrate the steps.
