Christmas is less than one week away. Which means New Years is less than 2 weeks away. I don't have very many New Years Eve decorations, so I decided to add this Sparkly Happy New Year Banner to my small collection.
Other supplies you'll need include:
Paint, Glitter, Modge Podge, hairspray, a foam paint brush, and a string to hang the banner from.
For my paint, I used The Champagne Gold color from DecoArt®. It's my favorite paint color ever, and I think it makes a great base color for this project. Of course you can always choose another color. Black, Silver, or Mulit-Colors would look great for this New Years banner.
I painted one thin coat of paint on each letter. It looked nice. You could leave the glitter out if you like a smooth finish, but I wanted to add glitter to my banner.
Next I added a thick layer of Modge Podge to each letter. Then I dumped a generous amount of glitter on top of the still well modge podge. I did one letter at a time, so that the modge podge would stay nice and wet. After dumping the excess glitter back into my glitter stash, I used some hairspray to spray each letter to keep the glitter in place.
