Beau Miss Home: Let It Shine

It’s an almost never ending saga with me and furnishing my home. You could blame those endless hours of HGTV, DIY channel watching, Pinterest scrolling, my upbringing or my need for perfection.

As I was walking in one day, I noticed a semi-empty space in need of attention. I like to have areas of interest. This one was lacking. On the top of my mini office resides my blinged out collection of picture frames. So whatever was going to live in this shared space had to sparkle. Then I found a quick fix to my compulsion. My love for Detroit would he highlighted here, again. (But that ain’t none of y’all business, lol). Off to the craft store we go!

I already had black poster board. The required supplies called for glitter, picture frame (any size), scissors, copy of the image and craft glue. While at my weekend home, JoAnn’s fabric and craft store, I discovered an ingenious product in glitter paper. A full sheet of paper with an adhesive backing covered in glitter. Well, slap me silly this project just became more cost efficient!!! I picked up some metallic pens to write a little message but that didn’t happen.

Follow these simple instructions:

~ Print off a picture or template of the item you want to see in glitter. Trace it out on the back of the glitter paper.

~ Remove backing and position on poster board where ever you like.

~ Place inside frame and display anywhere.

This beautiful addition to our home only cost $7 in supplies and 45 mins. I’ll have this forever! There are several pieces of Detroit in my home. Who said, there is a limit to my love of the place I call home? In what ways have you incorporated a geographic place into your living quarters?
