I recently whipped up some DIY wall art using a giant letter P that my mom gave me. I thought it would be perfect for Pearl’s room, but I needed to jazz it up a bit. We will be switching our girls around soon and Pearl will transition out of the nursery since she’ll be 3 in a few months, so I wanted to make something that could go with her. I had a bunch of tissue paper on hand and came up with the idea of making confetti to adorn the P and I think it turned out great!
For this project, you will need:
The letter was red, which definitely does not coordinate with Pearl’s room, so I gave it a fresh coat of white paint first before starting.
Then, I brushed on a layer of Mod Podge. You can use either matte or glossy, I used glossy because that is what I happened to have. You want to work in small sections, so just brush on the Mod Podge to a small section at a time.
Then start layering on your confetti. I used a dime sized circle punch to make my own, but I’m sure you could buy it from a party store. I liked being able to customize the colors myself and I had tons leftover that I can use for another craft!
Brush another layer of the Mod Podge on top of all the confetti to make everything stick.
I decided to space mine out more and more towards the bottom.
Love it! The P is a few feet tall, so it definitely makes a big impact and it can transition well to a big girl room which she will be moving into soon. Go craft something up with confetti now and let me know how it goes!
