There are just so many reasons to celebrate August! First of all, MY birthday (oh yeah!) my fiance's birthday, my beautiful new bar cart (our first wedding gift to have arrived. I'm so in love with it) and even the 5th anniversary of PopSugar's Must Have Box! Guys, you know I love this box because I've features it before. So this month I teamed up with PopSugar to bring you a DIY and a review of their August box...and if you wait until the end...there's a link and promo code especially for you!
Now on to the DIY celebration banner. I chose this DIY because it's timeless, easy, low cost, and looks so fun up on the wall. I chose "Bon Anniversaire" because everything sounds better in French, oui?! But you can use any phrase you like...and away we go!
Gather your Supplies!
- Bakers Twine
- Lovely washi paper of your choice
- Modge Podge
- Brush or sponge
- Alphabet letters (i found these at the dollar bin at Target)
- Gold glitter
- Low temperature glue gun
Step 1: Sponge on a thick layer of modge podge onto each alphabet letter.
Step 2: Before the modge podge dries, shower each letter with a healthy dose of glitter! Yes, it get's everywhere, but that's part of the fun, 0_0 right?!
Step 3: One the letters are glittered and dried, space out each letter face-down, and apply the bakers twice with a few drops of hot glue.
Step 4: Hang up on the wall using washi tape, and rejoice in your accomplishment! So shiny, so pretty!
Here are Some of my favorites from the August PopSugar Must Have Box, including these adorable candles from Meri Meri. They sparkle, and if you go on their site, you'll even find marbled candles. To die for!
I love this bracelet from Dogeared so much. It's simple and elegant! 'm getting a couple more for all my friends!
This notebook from Fringe Studio is so pretty and feminine, I can't wait to journal my little heart out.
