DIY: Fall glitter banner

I don't have a ton of Fall decorations. I tend to stock up on 4th of July goodies and hold off on all other holidays. After all, my husband limits me to filling up the guest closet. Yep, it's true. ALL my yearly decorations must fit in one guest-sized closet. But it's totally doable. I am good with my packing skills.

On a related note, we don't have a mantel in our house. Sad day. But the problem is that I love banners of all sorts. (Banners usually go on mantles.) When I saw this pin on Pinterest, I knew it was the perfect addition to add to our TV stand. It's my pretend mantle until we eventually get a real one. But who needs fire places in Texas??? Just kidding... I would love a fire place. Mostly for the looks; not necessarily for the purpose of heating the house.

Anyways, this project is super easy and best of all... it's glittery! Enjoy, all you fellow DIYers! :)

Step One: Gather your supplies. You will need:
+Mod Podge
+Mini clips
+Hot Glue + Gun Gun

Step Two: Paint your letters.
I used a metallic gold paint as the base. I must say that I was pretty imressed with the final color.

Step Three: Glitter your letters.
First, paint a coat of Mod Podge onto of the letter. Then immediately apply some glitter. Shake off excess once the glitter is completely dry.

Step Four: Attach mini clips.
I used a hot glue gun to attach the mini clips to the back of the letter. Then I cut some twine and strung it like a ribbon.

Step Five: Admire your puppies real quick-like.
Since they look so cute, you may as well snap a photo!

Step Six: Hang your banner.
Pretty much anywhere your little ole heart desires!
It's as easy as that. Now go make yourself one.
Happy Tuesday!


  1. Super cute! I live in Florida, I don't decorate until Christmas. But, I love that idea!!!

  2. I am LOVING that glitter on those letters. Super cute!

  3. Those letters are so perfect for fall! They look great and it looks like you had the best helpers while making them!

  4. Very cute. I couldn't imagine being limited to one closet! I may or may not go a little overboard with our christmas decor :)

  5. So cute! You make it look easy, but I'm fairly certain I could find a way to screw it up.

  6. i love that!!! so cute! i want to make one for christmas! where are your letters from?

  7. What a cute DIY project! Love the little clothes pins on the back! And anything that has glitter is a win in my book!

  8. Does the glitter stay on pretty well?

  9. okay so i think your glitter process is way better than mine. i mix the mod podge and glitter together and then paint it on, but then it's not all even and what not. definitely trying this! i love it!

  10. Love, Love, Love. I love any letter anything though. And we don't have a mantle either. Sad day.
