Love Letters | DIY Gold Ombre Love Letters

I was feeling a little creative the other day so I grabbed my Retail Me Not app and headed for Michaels (they always have good coupons) – 4 letters, a few different glitters, and some mod podge and I was ready to go. Keep in mind, this can work for any word/letters in any color scheme honestly. Same concept, different theme ya know? Pink and red hearts would be pretty or really anything…I would love to see some things if you do them! I am on IG @photogingmama so feel free to tag me in your projects so I can see!


First I went outside and spray painted the white letters gold (just in case any of the glitter fell off or whatever-it would have a good gold base)…

Some of this gold glitter I had laying around and some I purchased-just have a few shades of gold (maybe a few glitter textures as well) and then I also got some bronze to filter in the ombre look.


I brushed on a healthy (more than is shown here – you live & learn right?) amount of mod podge with a cheap paint brush (and also I would do like two letters at a time instead of all of them so it doesn’t loose its tackiness)…LoveLetters-4


I think took the darkest color glitter I had, which was the bronze color and applied a generous amount and left it there…gold glitter ombre letters


Then I put some the bronze glitter in a mason jar and added the next darkest color gold glitter to get a mixture…LoveLetters-6LoveLetters-7


Applied more mod podge and sprinkled that on….gold glitter ombre lettersLoveLetters-9LoveLetters-10


Then to that mixture I had left I added even more, but a little lighter, gold glitter….LoveLetters-11

More mod and more sprinkle….LoveLetters-12


Then I took some fun textured gold glitter for the last part, the top…

Don’t forget, once you are done and they are dry you can get a spray sealer for them. Also take the paper and fold it up and siphon the rest of the glitter in a jar for later use:-)
