DIY :: Crystal Letter

I am obsessed with those crystal encrusted block letters that are everywhere lately.  So I decided to create my own.  Loved that this project was easy and quick and looked fabulous once complete.  Here's a step-by-step to recreate the look.

What You'll Need:
~ Block Letters, I picked mine up from Hobby Lobby
~ Glue gun and glue stick
~ Acrylic paint and paint brush, I used FolkArt Metallic Acrylic Paint in Silver Sterling
~ And bling.  I used rhinestones with a flat back
1. Paint your letters.  I painted 3 to 4 coats with enough time between coats for it to fully dry.  Make sure you're covering all edges.
2. Lay out your bling in a pattern on the letter of your choice. This step was helpful in determining how many rhinestones I needed per row. And for the curves I used a combination medium and small sized rhinestones.
3. Secure the rhinestones/bling with your glue gun
4. Proudly display your masterpiece. I used these for the Breakfast at Tiffany's themed bridal shower we will be sharing here tomorrow.
