DIY Monday: Glittered Wire Name Signs

Happy DIY Monday! I came across this post in one of my favorite blogs: Oh Happy Day.  It’s a really fun “bride” and “groom” wire glittered chair sign. Honestly, I can think of a bunch of other ways this could be cute too… imagine you spelling out a special quote or your names and wedding date and hanging it above the dessert table, or making smaller versions for special guests.  The options are endless.  Best part, its super easy to do.

Glittered Wire Name Signs

Materials: wire, wire cutters, gold spray paint, gold glitter, scissors, ribbon, spray mount

Step 1: Take your wire and leave a bit of room for the curve of the first letter of the word you are going to spell.

Step 2: Start forming the first letter in cursive. Keep the letters loopy so the wire is easier to work with.

Step 3: At the last letter leave some extra wire for extra flourish like the beginning of the word.

Step 4: Spray the wire name gold.

Step 5: Wait a bit for the first layer to dry and then turn it over and spray.

Step 6: Using your spray mount, spray a portion of the wire and then quickly cover it with some glitter. Make sure you’re working on a piece of paper that you don’t mind chucking afterward.

Step 7: Continue spraying and pouring on glitter until it’s covered. Let it sit while it dries.

Step 8: As soon as it’s dry, shake off the extra glitter and return back into the bottle.

Step 9: Tie a ribbon to two letters and tie to a chair.
