Step 1: Preparing the Wood

Cut a piece of wood to your own specifications. (My board is 8 by 5.25 inches) Roughly sand the wood using 60-grit sandpaper. Last, stain the wood with dark brown wood stain.

Step 2: Adding the Letters

Using a pencil, add fancy lettering to the front of the sign.

Step 3: Decorating the Letters

Apply hot glue to the letters you penciled on in the last step. While the glue is still soft, liberally cover it with colored glitter. When the glue is hardened, after about five minutes, remove the excess glitter with a chip brush.

Step 4: Decorate

    Yeah, it looked like thread to me too. Amazing effect! Thank you for sharing it :-)
    (p.s "empty shelf" just means "need to buy more books". Just sayin')

    I honestly thought it might be stitched wood at first! But glitter is better :)
