DIY Collegiate Glitter Art

With football season around the corner, you know our city is about to be painted burnt orange (hook ’em!) While I’m a Longhorn fan, my main man is a Michigan fan so buying an awesome wreath from Etsy was not an option, unfortunately. Screen Shot 2013-07-15 at 11.04.10 AMSo, I started racking my brain for ways that I could adequately display my college-football pride while not disrespecting my husband’s love of the University of Michigan. It was then that I remembered that our contributor, Kristen, posted this DIY Collegiate Canvas on her personal blog The Mrs. and The Momma, and I thought I’d put a different spin on in..enter DIY Collegiate Glitter Art in a frame.

The process was free (if you have glitter, construction paper and some frames lying around) and took less than fifteen minutes to create.  Here’s the rundown.

Supplies

The first thing you want to do is make sure your tracing paper fits inside your frame.  If it’s bigger, you should cut it to size.  Then you’ll place your tracing paper over your logo.  I used my computer screen and Google to find the logo of my choice. (An alternative to this step is to print the logo of your liking and cut it out…we do not have a working printer ((it’s been out of ink for year))so this was not an option for me).

Steps 1-3

Then you’ll cut out the logo.  Next you’ll want to make sure that you cut the final paper (construction in my example) fits inside the frame.  Then you have to retrace the logo–seems redundant for those non-printer owners, but I promise it takes up no time.

Steps 4-6

The next thing you’ll do is put glue on sections of the traced logo and then sprinkle glitter on the area. I tried putting glue on the entire thing once and sprinkling like crazy and it didn’t come out very good.  The sectioned approach works best.  I’d also recommend clear glue, but I was going for FREE and things I already had, so I didn’t go get clear glue.

Steps 7-10

And there you have it, DIY Collegiate Glitter Art in less than 15 minutes! And if you really love your husband, you can make him one for his team, too…just put it in a girly frame to get even. These also make easy peasy gifts for any college-football lovers in your life.

    I am Mariam used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes…i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Priests Abija); he does not advertise on the internet, has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn’t mind me advertising his contact on the internet but I’m sure any help/ extra work will benefit him.contact him here as +447053820826 or spirituallighthealing101@live.com He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,it’s all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something
