Polka Dot Pumpkin DIY (Glitter All the Things!)
Isn't it the BEST?? I've been oohing and ahhing over glitter projects from all over the web for ages, and I finally got around to busting out the sparkles last night. So! Fun! My first victim was a white pumpkin from my living room. I liked the simple, understated look of it, but thought that polka dots would take it to a whole new level of fantasticalness. I was so right on. I love it in dots!! I wish I had about three more in different shades of white. Pretty!
Here it is, in all its glory, outshining everything else in my living room:
It was so easy to make, you have to try it! Make glue stick circles, sprinkle on the glitter, brush off excess and let dry! I also painted the stem with a gold acrylic.
The same technique would work with all sorts of things I would think. Whetever you have around that needs polka dots on it. Which, I would hazard a guess, is a great many things.
Something else I felt needed a little shine? My flat headed sewing pins. Yellow is cute, but I thought a few glittery ones would be so fun! I finished them off with a little clear nail polish so the glitter wouldn't come off.
And then I went a little insane.
There was no one awake to stop me! Note to self: don't do glitter crafts alone at night with nail polish fumes in the air.
I really love the Altoids tin and the clothespin. And the tea light holders. Cute! You know what my husband didn't love? The measuring tape. Oops. I was like: "But we have another one! I only glittered one of them!" Then he reminded me that our other one is pink. Oh yeah. Sorry, dear!! Guess I know what I'm putting in his stocking this year.
So that bout of glitter-insanity brings me to a question for you guys: any idea what I can cover these with that will keep the glitter on? The clear nail polish works great on small things, like the pins, but I need something else for the others. Is there some sort of spray product out there or something? Anyone know?? I'd appreciate your suggestions!
Have a great and glittery day! And remember: glitter comes in allllllll sorts of colors. :O) So you could really do some damage out there. Glitter the world. :O)
