When in doubt, add rhinestones. That's not really my motto, but it seems to work for this project. This glitzy monogram would be a fun addition to a number of special occasions-- wedding, bridal shower, girls birthday party... really anything that needs a little sparkle. Or maybe even room decor-- hey, it looks kinda nice on our dresser.
This actually isn't my monogram, but is something that I'm working on for the holidays. More on that later. :)
Here's how you can make your own shiny, sparkly monogram--
A few notes:
I painted the cardboard letter with Martha Stewart's multi-purpose paint in Mother of Pearl-- just enough gleam without being silver. Since I painted both sides of the letter, I found it easier and neater to paint on wax paper instead of newspaper (no print transfer).
I have to admit that the bedazzle process is a bit mundane. Definitely something to do while listening to good music (or perhaps sorta/kinda watching the Olympics). It took me about 3 hours to glue the rhinestones onto this 12-inch letter... this would be much quicker with a smaller sized letter, and even more quicker if you're not obsessed with fitting everything together perfectly. :)
Just a few more hours of bedazzling to go and I'll be ready for Christmas! :)
