I want to make glittered wooden table numbers, but I’m not sure the best way. Mod podge? Would I put the mod podge on first and then glitter, or would I mix glitter into the mod podge? Is there a better glue to use?

My results were: modge podge mixed with glitter is just a tinted sparkle
Modge podge >glitter applied on top> modge podge> glitter applied on top gives more of the blingy glittered look

Coat the item in modge podge.
Dip the item in glitter (Or shake it over if you prefer.)
Use a piece of plastic wrap or a plastic bag to press down the glitter gently, ensuring it’s in the glue.
Shake off excess and evaluate.
Dip or shake on more glitter as needed.
Allow to dry, apply a coat of modge podge (Or hair spray works just as well) to the finish product to minimalize glitter loss.*
*I was, once upon a time, a prop maker for a theatre. This final step is important! It will prevent it from getting craft herpes (AKA glitter) all over EVERYTHING, EVERYONE, or falling off entirely.

Don’t do what I did – paint them with Martha Stewart glitter paint. It’s okay looking, but the glittery is splotchy. I will have to sand them down and then try the mod podge + glitter + mod podge +glitter like icetea suggests.

Glitter spray paint? Not sure what color you wanted, but they sell pretty metallic silver/gold with the specks in it.
