Easily craft your own giant DIY glitter EAT sign for you kitchen with our how-to tutorial.

We’re still working on the kitchen and I had high hopes of reusing our old EAT sign on the wall beside the open shelving. Only when I went to unpack them, they were nowhere to be found! I do have the vague feeling that I gave them away though? So I decided to just create a new giant glitter eat sign. You know, since we love to EAT around here!

Do you want to see how we did it?

Supplies for Giant Glitter EAT sign for kitchen: wood craft letters, foam brushes, glue, paint, command strips.



1. Tape newspaper or Kraft paper over your work surface.

2. Using a foam brush, paint letters with two coats of white craft paint. Let dry.

3. Apply Mod Podge to ONLY the edges of one letter. Then, over the cookie sheet, sprinkle German glass glitter mixture onto the glue-covered edges. Gently press glitter to aid in adhesion. Set aside to dry. Repeat for each letter.

4. Using another foam brush, apply Extreme Glitter Mod Podge to the front surface of one letter. While Mod Podge is still wet, sprinkle Martha Stewart glitter over entire surface. Set aside to dry. Repeat for each letter.

5. Once letters are dry, gently tap off excess glitter onto cookie sheet and flip letters to back sides. Affix Command Adhesive strips to letters and then affix the letters to the wall, following the package instructions. It is a good idea to measure out your placement first!

And now we have some more kitchen bling! I love how it plays off of our chandelier, but contrasts with our industrial stainless steel counters and rustic wood open shelves!

What do you think? Do you like these in the kitchen? Or would you make them for another room in your house – a nursery or kid’s room perhaps?


I'd love it if you'd share:

    I am so excited for your guys, your kitchen is looking fabulous, the open shelving with the white dishware and glass groupings…wow!! I would love to see what it looks like at night with that gorgeous chandie casting a warm glow. Love the letters, cause I love me some glitter!!

      Well, by pretty in the middle daughter sure isn’t complaining about the glitter! She was thrilled I incorporated some into the kitchen!

      We made the open shelves (Dean works in sheet metal and used the same material for the brackets as the countertops), but you could get similar brackets at Ikea and cut shelves to fit.
