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.
