Explore How to Make the Mundane Sparkle!

Laundry sign on wood palette with Creative Medium, All Purpose Ink and Sheer Shimmer Spritz.

In an effort to add more sparkle to my home this year, I have been creating decorative signs. This decorative, glittery laundry sign has come about through many trial and errors! I love a more rustic look, but know that it can feel rather cold and industrial. By adding glitter to dark wood, I really feel like it creates an inviting appearance. For this project, mixing wood, Creative Medium, and glitter give this sign a lot of farmhouse sparkle!

Skill: Beginner
Time: 10 minutes + 2 hours for dry time
