Glittered Letter Doily Banner {Valentine's Day Ideas}

Hello sweet friends! I hope your week has been a beautiful one so far!

I thought that as it was getting closer to Valentine's Day, I would share this banner with you! 

I shared this when I guest posted over at Attempting Aloha about this time last year, but never shared it here! However, it's such an easy little craft, I thought it would be a shame not to show it over here as well!

I had these cute large chipboard letters on hand. A few years ago, I was really into using them for my banners, but I hadn't used them in a while.

They are pre-glittered, but I didn't want them to be black for this project. Enter dark blue glitter...

I decoupaged the letter,

and then shook the glitter over it. Yea! Now I had a blue  glittered letter!

And another letter...

I just kept glittering away, until I had finished all the letters I needed. After letting them dry, I was ready for these:

These small doilies, just under 7 inches wide, were found at JoAnn's Fabrics.

I glued each glittered letter to the the center of each doily...Now I used a glue gun, because I want to be able to get it off easily, to use these doilies again. However, I tested a letter using Elmer's multipurpose glue, and it worked great.

There is just something about glittered letters...

I just wove the ribbon through two of the holes in the top of each doily. I adjusted them until they looked right, attaching it securely to both ends of the mantel. (Upholstery tacks work wonders for this!)

And you have a doily banner!

{What you will need for this project}
Small doilies
Chipboard letters {I know these can be found at Michael's craft store}
Decoupage glue
Foam brush
Glue gun/glue sticks or Elmer's glue

 I hope you all have a good night, and a lovely Wednesday! It has been snowing since Saturday, and we are enjoying being *snowed in* over here! Apparently there is a lot more on the way, too, so I have three very excited children! I'm crossing my fingers we get even more snowed in! :)
