Now that the floor sanding is behind us, I cannot wait to start decorating the house for Christmas. I walked past live wreaths, garland, trim and tabletop trees at the store this week and was just longing to put one in my cart, but I’m waiting until Thanksgiving passes. I don’t want my live greens to be dried to a crisp by the time Christmas morning rolls around! I’ve been satisfying the craving with Pinterest, holiday magazines and some Christmas tunes. I also started on a few projects, like the upholstered Christmas banner and the mason jar snow globes. I also whipped out the MMS German Glass Glitter to use on a few things…
I found this plastic deer at an antique store for $5.00 and knew it would look amazing glittered.
It actually looked pretty as is, but you know how I am. Can’t leave well enough alone!
I brushed it with Elmer’s glue and a 1/2″ artist brush. It was a little challenging brushing over the fuzzy body, but it wasn’t too bad.
I then sprinkled on Tiara glitter. I like to work in small sections, so the glue is fresh and the glitter can adhere best.
I’ll also do most of a piece like this, let it dry and then finish the rest, so I always have a place to hold.
I glittered a small plastic deer as well and they look so sweet together. I love how this glass glitter makes little plastic figures look high end.
I also tried out the glitter on a papier mache house from a craft store.
I used the same method that I did on the deer…
…and I glittered a little plastic cow for the front yard, too.
Why have a dog or a cat when you can have a cow?
A glittered cow at that.
