When La La was in preschool, we made jingle bell bracelets for all for all of the girls in her class. There were only a few boys in her class, and while we could have given them jingle bell bracelets, I don’t think they would have been a big fan. I would have been a little worried if they were into the way it looked, but they did have a pretty jingle to them.

Wasn’t she the cutest?  She loved to make things, too and she would actually wear the things I made her like this tunic.  I still love that fabric. You know I love some beautiful fabric, too!  These were the years where she kept a few specks of glitter on her scalp at all times. I’m grateful that her teachers knew we were crafty or they may have wondered why that child kept coming to school with glitter all over her!

Directions:

Step one. Paint your wooden letter with the acrylic paint. You don’t have to use red… they would be gorgeous in any color! Let dry completely.

Step Two. Flip the letter over so that you are seeing the backside, Paint on glitter glue.  Add glitter making sure to fill in the entire letter.  The more the better here folks. Let dry.

*** Here is a tip! Glitter over a paper plate and then you can use the excess again or dump it back into the container, whatever you do, don’t just shake it on with the shaker. Get a spoon and sprinkle it on there by barely tapping the side of the spoon.***

Step Three. Turn the letter over and repeat with the glue and glitter.

Step Four. Find the best place for your letter to add the screw eye. Each letter is different, so imagine it hanging on a Christmas tree.  Where would it need to be placed for it to hang the most naturally. I can usually just twist it in my hand. If you are having trouble you can use an ice pick or a drill to start your hole.

Step Five. Spray the back side with the acrylic sealer, let dry and then spray the front.  This should help the litter from going everywhere.

Step Six: Thread the decorative ribbon through the screw eye and tie it off. That is it!
