Martha Stewart Crafts Glitter Review {& GIVEAWAY!}

I was recently given the opportunity to review some glitter from Martha Stewart Crafts
And let me tell you, I jumped at the opportunity!
In this house full of testosterone, glitter and I do not get to play together often.
So when the chance arises, I jump on it!

I was sent the 24-pack Rich Essentials Glitter Pack.
Don’t all those colors look fun?
Besides narrowing down what I was going to glitter (the list continues to grow!), selecting a color to use was a feat unto itself!
I decided to try my glittering skills on this decorative pear I had that I knew I could give a new look.

This was my first time using the decoupage + glitter technique and I do believe I’m smitten.
It was super easy!
Apply decoupage, sprinkle on Martha’s glitter, and BAM! Instant makeover!

Martha’s glitter is so super fine that it cover all areas superbly.
I ended up using 3 different colors (white gold, azurite, and citrine) allowing each section to dry before moving on to the next.

I glued rhinestones around the center of the pear to complete my look. 
Its going to be a great piece for my living room whenever I get a chance to give it a makeover!
These are the colors I have planned!

And I could not just stop with the pear. 
I raided my boys’ animal toys (shhh!) and decided this little elephant could use a makeover.
I used the white gold on him, too. 

Isn’t he so cute?

I’m going to be on the lookout for some more little animals to glitter.

I also used the Pledge/glitter technique on one of the handprint ornaments I made with my boys over the weekend. I love this blue topaz color!
The Martha Stewart Crafts glitter is perfect for this technique.

And I have exciting news!
One lucky reader will receive their own 24-pack glitter set!

    Another thing to do with glitter: Get your glue gun and plug her in. Pour glitter into an tin/aluminum pie plate. Use your glue gun to “draw” a snowflake in the glitter. Shake/pour more glitter on top of your glue creation. Let it harden, then take it out. Stick it with a thumbtack or small nail then put a paperclip in the small hole. Voila! You have your own glitter ornament! (Okay, you may want to make a hole in it before it finishes drying/hardening.)

    I’d love to use this to dress up some plain white Christmas balls that we have on our tree. I’d love to try to “paisley” them.

    I have some glass tree jars that I want to glitter, plus lots of fun projects with my son. He’s homeschooled and right now we are learning about weather and making our own “weather effects” for inside the house – these would make awesome snowflakes and raindrops!

    Oh how I would love to have this set of glitter. I am homeschooling a granddaughter we are raising and she is so in love with crafting. And of course glitter is a big part of crafts. We cannot afford too much on extras like this line of glitter, but would love to see her eyes shine about these. Thank you for the offer.

  5. says

    I want to make ornaments like you did, I’ve done them with paint but would love to try glitter. I also love a variety of crafts, so the collection would be put to good use. I’ve heard of people using them for nail art creations, really want to try that.

  6. says

    I am wanting to make some Victorian style Christmas tree ornaments, and glitter would definitely enhance them! Also, I want to glitter the tips of pine cones for house decorations. Happy holidays!

  7. says

    I heart glitter- I am wanting some fun glitter colors to make the pledge/glitter ornaments. Also I would find a way to use all this fun glitter when making decoration, invitations etc did jt daighter’s birthday in February

The pear was so pretty and would look great used on table settings and the little elephant (sooooo cute) made me think my paper mache deers would be lovely covered in glitter…see what you started!!! Thanks for the chance to win this gorgeous set!!

    I love glitter and use it on so many project. I purchased this set last year as a thank you for my daughter, at Christmas, for running me from doctor to doctor appointment and she loves it. Now I’ve been wanting my own but it’s still on my wish list.

  11. says

    “Season’s Greetings!” I love to make cards and would
    use the lovely glitters on them and also it would be
    fun to create ornaments with them…
    Many thanks, Cindi

    I have to admit that I bit the bullet a few months ago and just bought this giant pack of glitter for myself haha! I LOVE Martha Stewart glitter, it is superior in my crafty opinion. I love the idea of glittering the elephant–since I’m doing lots of elephant details in my baby girl’s room!

  13. says

    I love Martha Stewart glitter!!! I’ve tried other kinds, but I really like the fineness of hers! Thanks so much for the chance to win!

    PS ~ do you know if you can do the Glitter/Pledge technique using the clear acrylic (rather than glass) ornaments? I’d like to try them with kids in an after-school program and don’t want to use glass.

  14. says

    Oh my goodness would so love to win I love her products also love what you did with the pear it turned out beautiful thank you for the chance to win and wishing you and your family a Merry Christmas

  15. says

    I have several paper mache animals – tiger, rabbit, monkey and horse and would like to glitter them. I also have several paper mache hearts that I would use glitter on for Valentine’s Day ornaments. I love glitter!!!!

  16. says

    Ohhhhh glitter!!! I adore sparkly things so it would be put to good use on anything not already glittered. I would love to give a few candleholders some sparkle. I also have some frames that could use a glittery lift.

  17. says

    I think I’d really like to decorate my ever-so-boring journals, as well as cards/letters for friends and family. It’s so pretty and more fun than confetti, I’d imagine!

  18. says

    I have an idea in my head for some metal, mod podge and glitter…..if that didn’t work out, I would make some glitter ornaments….or cards….or villages….oh heck….I’d glitter everything that wasn’t moving!

  19. says

    I would LOVE to win this glitter!! I love making the glitter ornaments and I need more supplies. I so want to make some glitter ornaments too. They are too cute.

  20. says

    I love glitter! Especially at Christmas! Martha’s colors are amazing. I saw some beautiful ornaments made with them and they are on my to-do list for next year!

  21. says

    Wow, that elephant looks great! Hmmm, there are lots of plastic, cute things around my house that can use some glitter. I have some of Martha Stewart’s glitter for scrapbooking and I love how fine her glitter is.

  22. says

    I would make more Putz houses. Probably for other holidays since I have made some for CHristmas.
    Last week-end my 9 year old granddaughter and I made 3 houses. Let me tell you that my house has glitter all over it. We used all the glitter and need more. Guess you shouldn’t hand a large bottle of glitter to a 9 year old and not supervise.

  23. says

    Okay. I LOVE the fact that you are glittering the animals from the toy chest. There is NO SUCH THING as too much sparkle! I am sitting at the computer, looking around the house at the things I could glitter. Endless possibilities!

  24. says

    I have an owl and a glass vase that I got from goodwill that I bought for the purpose of doing this. I just could never find time or money to go buy the good glitter!
    we are know Martha’s glitter is AMAZING!! I would love to actually glitter my things! and go find a bunch more things! This would be awesome gifts for people too!
    Thanks so much for this giveaway!

    There is a group of neighborhood children that meet in my studio [garage] for creative adventures. We would most certainly use the glitter in January for our Let it Snow workshop and February’s Valentine Card making and by March we would need to ‘re-stock’ :) After all, have you ever met a child who didn’t LOVE GLITTER?! :)

    I live in a very small space and I added a few pieces for the fall holidays that were glittered and I saw what it did to the small areas I can decorate. I would love to win this because it would allow me to create my own creations that will make small places pop!

  27. says

    I love that elephant!! I would love to try that pledge glitter technique, with my Girl Scout troop. That would be a fun craft activity for those girls! For the holidays, the gold, silver, red and green would be awesome for pretty much ANYthing – glitter santas, glitter snowmen, glitter reindeer…. oh my! :D
