DIY: Sparkly Bulletin

I bought this bulletin board so that I can have a place to put all my loose papers- you know, trying to organize myself over here...and I wanted to add a little COLOR to it. I am WAY into glitter lately (remember my nails?). So I figured what better way to spruce things up then with glitter?!
All you need is: a bulletin board, some glue, a paint brush, mod podge, and glitter!
This is my lampshade I have in my office (a great TJ Max find) I added a string of beads on the bottom of it and so I chose to match the glitter to the pink beads...to tie it all in. 
 1. Just paint on a nice thin layer of glue....
 2. Put some paper underneath and on top to catch all the fallen glitter...I did this in sections and simply moved the paper as I went.
 3. Then once I was done with sprinkling...out came the Mod Podge to seal the deal!
 4. I got a bigger brush and gently painted it on top of the glitter just so that the glitter had a nice top coat so it wouldn't fall off...(don't mind my claw hand ha)

 5. Then...(i am a bit of a perfectionist, don't hate me...) I went around with tape and got all the excess sparkles off the board.
 
 6. Added some push pins (these are earrings of mine that don't have matches to them...they make PERFECT push pins)
 7. Lastly, hang it up for all to admire. Just gives it a nice touch don't you think?
The End.
Pin It

  1. It looks so pretty and sparkly!

    One idea (I'm a perfectionist, too, so I totally know what you mean about the loose glitter!) would be to use blue painter's tape, on the inside edge of the bulletin board, before applying the glue and glitter. Then peel the tape off, when the glue is dry.
