As we all know, glitter makes everything better. A lot of people refer to glitter as the herpes of craft projects, but I don’t feel that way. Nope. You just have to treat glitter right, and it will make you happy beyond measure.  I mean, I love me some glitter craft projects.

Lately, I’ve been seeing these glitter wine glasses all over the place. Since I do love glitter, I decided that I needed these glittered wine glasses in my life. However, the prices were a bit steep. I’ve seen these glitter wine glasses going for $10 to as much as $22 a piece. Oh no. I figured if everyone has these, they can’t be that hard to make a glitter wine glass.

I was recently drafted for décor help for a gathering. Since we were putting this together last minute, and on a somewhat shoestring budget, we had to get creative. One of the main items we used were candles. But, how do we jazz these candles up quickly, and on a budget? Washi tape to the rescue! Oh yes. We made Washi Tape Candles!

snowglobe-christmas-ornament-tutorial

I have always loved snow globes.  They have these great, detailed scenes, and when you shake them, they disappear in the flurry of whatever they use to make fake snow.  And just before everything settles down, shake them again, really hard, with all your might.

Oh?  Everyone doesn’t do that?  Or try to get all the snow globes in a collection going at once?  Hmmm…you don’t say.

In any case, these snow globe Christmas ornaments are a fantastic addition to anyone’s tree.  They’re inexpensive to make, too.

I am a notoriously late Christmas shopper.  Really, for just about any occasion, but Christmas especially.  One year, when I was about 8 or 9, my grandmother took me Christmas shopping.  On Christmas eve.

Gumball machines hold a special place in my heart, because of this event.

Thanks to Oriental Trading for providing some of the supplies for these Resin Glitter Pendants.

how-to-make-a-resin-glitter-pendant

As most of you know by now, I have a love affair with glitter. I mean, I’m pretty sure it’s a two-way street and we’re thisclose to being official. I wanted to make something that I could show the world my love, not just another home décor glitter project. Enter the Resin Glitter Pendants.

Real resin is difficult to use, and in my experience, has mixed results. You have to make sure that you mix it just right, for long enough – but not too long – and that the weather is just right. Yeah, I don’t have the time or patience for all of that. Sooo…I chose to use Diamond Glaze, which is a resin-like product, but about a thousand times easier to use. There are other brands of this on the market, but Diamond Glaze and Crystal Lacquer are my favorites.
