DIY December : Glitter

I am not ashamed to admit I love glitter and I love a dollar store.  I'm not necessarily fond of the mess that comes with glitter but the end product is worth it.  With my blog series in mind, I went to the Dollar Tree last week to see what items I could find for easy and affordable DIY projects.  I found some great items.  All that was needed was a little oomph!  Best way to add oomph?  Gold glitter.

The first glitter fabulousness was with these tall, skinny white candles (found at the Dollar Tree).  

  • I cleaned the outside surface of them with rubbing alcohol and let dry.  
  • Then, with Elmer's Glue I wrote out the words and sprinkled with glitter.  
  • I removed the excess glitter with a Q-tip and a knife.  

They may not necessarily be magazine worthy, but for $1.00 I think they are kind of cute!


The next project was my favorite!  It is nothing more than a plastic pear covered in glue and then sprinkled with glitter.  I think they make the perfect place card holder for a Christmas dinner party!


Both of these projects took less than 30 minutes combined and were super cheap!  I am just in love with that pear!  Glitter done right makes me smile!  How about you?  Anybody else have any fab glitter projects they've done?  Feel free to share!
