Glittery XO Letters

I was walking around the craft store one day and this project popped into my head. A cute & easy way to decorate for Valentine's Day! I love Valentine's Day decorations because they're always adorable and they're not religious so everyone can appreciate them.

I bought two 3-D papier mache letters that were about 10 inches tall.
I found some really fun glittery red paper in the scrapbooking section and bought two sheets. I traced the letters onto the glitter paper and cut them out. I wanted paper to cover the front and the back of each letter so I made two X's and 2 O's.

Using some red acrylic paint, I painted the sides red to match the paper.
I used spray glue to attach the glitter paper to the letters and let the glue dry.
Glittery, sparkly, and fun!

Here's the letters on our bookshelf in the family room and I thought they worked well next to the frame I gave Hubby on our first Valentine's Day after only 2 weeks of dating. Gosh, we look young and innocent in that photo!
