5 Secrets to More Color at Home

DIY Glitter Valentine’s Day Photo Props


I would promise the glitter-fest is going to end soon, but then I’d totally be lying. Valentine’s Day is just too darn perfect for sparkle! You lucky ducks are getting another sneak peek at the little shoot I did with Mary Costa and Garlic My Soul (Full awesomeness coming at you on the 14th!) since I created these fun glittery photo props for it! Ever since I discovered smoothfoam (Like styrofoam but with a smooth surface) I’ve been obsessed so I’ve been ordering and using all sorts of shapes and sizes. Like these X’s and O’s. They got their glitter on, and you should too!

Cover your letter in Mod Podge then cover it in glitter. (I think I’ve told you guys how to glitter things about a billion times now, but I’m just gonna keep doing it!)

Since photo props get thrown around alot, we want to seal up that sparkle by adding another layer of Mod Podge over the glitter. Let it dry completely.

And then hop in a photo booth, or in front of a camera and start snapping!

These also make excellent cake toppers but our cake was special enough already (Ooooh, aahh! You’ll see soon!) so we delegated these XO’s to propage. Something had to compete with that piñata, right!?
