Almost done decorating! It’s so much fun to enjoy the lights, glitter, and amazing colors of the season. This year I decided that some of my decor needed a bit of glitter to freshen it up. I will walk you through glittering your decor.
I have had these potted flowers for years, adding glitter to half of the stripes makes the flowers pop!
Take a look at your decor and see what you can add some bling to. Here on this sign, I paint on craft glue and sprinkle glitter over the glue.
I use cheap paint brushes, but I use expensive glitter to get the best results. I recommend the Martha Stewart glitter from Michaels. The quality and shimmer is unsurpassed!
Mod Podge makes a great glue. It is also a sealant to seal in anything you are crafting. But when glittering I use it as a glue. Here you can see I glittered some balls I have that were boring in their natural state. I sprinkled glitter on a plate and rolled the ball on the plate after i painted it with Mod Podge. The pinecone was glittered with the same process: Mod Podge painted on the areas I wanted glitter to stick, sprinkle glitter over a plate, let dry.
Here you can see my daughter glittering old lightbulbs. She paints the bulb, sprinkles the glitter over a piece of parchment paper, then slides the excess glitter back into the bottle by folding the paper in half. We are able to save and reuse the glitter!
The possibilities are endless! We have craft parties too. Invite a friend or two and let them in on the fun! See my Facebook pagehttps://m.facebook.com/meredithehlerstyle for more tips, as well as follow me on Instagram @Meredith_Ehler or Twitter @MeredithEhler. -Meredith
