So when it comes time to set a party table, I love to incorporate the birthday girl or boy’s name into the design.  I think it is such a fun way to personalize the spread:)  Sometimes, I do this with fondant letters, or cookies…sometimes with banners or signs.  And sometimes with awesome custom made signs or letters.

For this fun glitter and mint shamrock party, I created an easy DIY glitter name centerpiece.  Today I have a centerpiece tutorial so I can show you how to make one too.

Materials:

Paper Mache Letters-one for each letter of the name
Gold Spray Paint
Gold Glitter Spray PaintSuper Glue
thin piece of wood-long enough to place all the letters on top of

Step One:

Spray paint all the letters with the gold spray paint.  This will be an undercoat for the glitter, so you will want to make sure you fully cover the letters front and back and the gold paint.  You may need to do more than one coat.

Step Two:

Once the undercoat dries, spray the letters with a light layer of glitter spray paint.  You don’t need a heavy coat because of the gold underneath.

Step Three:

Glue the letters to the wood board with superglue (and also to each other in the sections that touch each other).  Allow to dry and bam…your done:)
