All that Glitters

hearts amongst the fairies

As you probably know by now, I love sparkly things…if it glitters chances are, I love it! I FINALLY figured out how to make those really cool glitter ornaments from empty glass ornaments.

After trying reinkers and glitter, paint and glitter, just plain paint and, no thank you, I did not try pine sol and glitter (although that’s what I saw on Pinterest). Here’s what DID work:

hearts and fairies

Glimmer mist and colored glitter (you know, the kind you buy in little tubes?). Just spray the glimmer mist inside the glass ornament (I used about 5 squirts for each ornament), then sprinkle the glitter inside and roll around for good coverage). Leave it to dry overnight, then dump the excess glitter…voila!

I just love the results! Now I can start decorating for Valentine’s day!

Speaking of Valentine’s Day, time is running out to grab the awesome Whoo’s Your Valentine kits for $10 from my website: overhobbied.ctmh.com. I need to buy candy for mine, but here’s what I’ve come up with so far…I can see using these stamps over and over again…a few hints, if you purchase a kit:

1) stamp before you put together
2) let the ink dry before putting the box together
3) use a quick drying glue and let each side dry before moving to the next
4) use your 1″ square and circle punches to add interesting dimension to your boxes!
