A friend who is getting married this month asked if I could recreate these chair signs from bhldn.com for less than $48:

Naturally, I said yes. She asked for navy blue letters and green ribbon, but it turns out navy glitter is nearly impossible to find. In fact, I would offer money to anyone who can find legitimately navy blue glitter. The stuff I found was royal blue at darkest. So, we regrouped and decided to go with green glitter and navy ribbon.
I ordered Krylon Glitter Blast Spray in citrus dream ($10.37 on Amazon) and found some adorable grosgrain navy blue striped ribbon ($2.77 for 5 yards on Amazon).
Through a quick Google search, I found free printouts of lowercase bubble letters at craftjr.com, and used them to stencil and cut out letters from one of the cardboard boxes in my basement.
Next, was the fun part. I do love a good spray painting party.
Then the hole punching.
And add the ribbon.

Voila! Easy as pie.
Total cost: $13.14
