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!
