Playing with Letters

There are a few simple words that can sum up the wonder of Christmas...   
To make this I grabbed a couple wooden letters from 
Hobby Lobby and painted them red. 
Then outlined each letter with the glue.
And then sprinkled the glue with my red Martha Stewart Giltter...
I waited for it to dry and then arranged the letters close together. 
To ensure a seamless look, 
I painted one side of my popsicle sticks (that I cut in half) 
and then glued the popsicle stick to the back side of my letters.
My final product displayed next to my nativity scene on top of my entertainment center.

I also played with a large thinner wooden letters for this look.
 Again, I found them at Hobby Lobby for $1.99 (and they were probably 40% off the day I bought them-cause that's the way I roll!)
 I used some left over gold paint for a four letters.
And put the letters together the same 
way I did for "JOY" with popsicle sticks.
 My final product. Maybe I should I add a little glitter?
