Glitter DIY- Balloons, Letters, Mod Podge, Oh My!

Glitter was the inspiration for Kalia's first birthday party, so I tried to incorporate it throughout the entire party!  Check out more pictures of her party!

I wanted to add her name in "lights" and Kalia loves balloons.  And why not replace boring balloon weights with glitter!? 

A very simple DIY, but the results are beautiful.  I would love to use it around Halloween with a dark black glitter to spell Boo and Christmas time to spell Joy or Peace.  I cannot wait to use it around the holidays!

Here is how you can make this simple DIY and spell whatever you like! 

- Mod Podge (the sparkle version of course!)
- Balloons (not shown)

- Brush Mod Podge onto letters
- Sprinkle glitter on one side
- Let Dry
- Flip sides and repeat!

To Hang:
Using the ribbon from the balloons, tie around your letter.  You can also staple gun the ribbon on, but tying led to a more "floaty effect" which is what I wanted.

Happy Friday!

I hope you enjoy this simple DIY that takes minutes! I will update holiday versions as the season comes!

  1. Where do you get the letters? And are there other shapes you could use? Like animals, for example?

  2. What a cute idea! I'd love to do this with a number for like a 3rd birthday or something. Thanks for the inspiration!

    What a brilliant idea! So long to those ugly and boring balloon weights that get trashed. THIS is what I will do from now on! Thank you for your kind visit to my blog. I am now a big fan of yours!
