DIY ~ Upcycled "Home" Decor

I had these cute letters that spelled the word "home".
I believe I got them at Dollarama.
I wanted to spruce them up a bit, so here is what I did.

acrylic craft paint in 4 colors and black
mini paint brush
medium flat paint brush
mod podge
silver/clear sticky gems

First do a thin black line around the outside of each letter.

Once that is dry, pick a color and start painting swirls all throughout the middle part.

Once those are dry, add your gems wherever you have a space!

Lightly clear coat with a thin layer of mod podge.

Make sure you don't have too much excess mod podge around the gems or it wont dry clear!

Let dry and stand on a mantel, desk, book shelf, wherever!!!
