D.I.Y. Ho Ho Ho banner

Tis the season to get your decoration on. Here's a good one for the kids. Super easy and of course involves glitter. 
You'll need the following:
- Cardstock
- Scissors
- Spray Glue and Glitter
- Glitter acrylic paint
- Tape
- Hot glue gun
- Twine
Print out your letters of choice on Cardstock. Unfortunately I don't have a Ho Ho Ho template, I just googled 'Stencil letters for print' and had no trouble finding letters.
Once you have your letters, cut them out:
If using glitter (which I recommend because it will make your banner waaay more sparkly),
spray your letters with spray glue and then sprinkle away.
If using glitter paint, spray glue not necessary, paint away:
Once letters are dry, it's time to bust out the big guns. Hot glue guns that is.
Make sure to lay your letters out backwards so your sign will read the correct way. There's nothing worse than getting the letters all bippity boppity backwards, no fairy godmother can undo that damage. And your banner will only look good with the use of a mirror.
Use tape to place your letters straight as well as equal distance apart:
Hot glue your letters to your twine:
Carefully remove tape and abracadabra:

Unless you missed my 10 things I'm totally and seriously grateful for post, you should very well know that I am a huge fan and supporter of all things glitter. So I feel the need to offer my sincerest apologies for the severe lack of glitter in this post. I was a bit disappointed with the glitter paint. I never thought I'd be let down via glitter. You live and you learn.

Still a fun holiday project that I highly recommend (obviously with more glitter).
Happy ho ho holidays, friends!
