I LOVE glitter and shine, so when I surf Pintrest I get all excited to see what people are glittering.

I thought it would be fun to glitter some glasses and a candle, but SOOO many things can be glitterfied Smile I have some little birds that may be next on my list to glitter. You can glitter pinecones, pumpkins, birdhouses etc.

Here is what I did (sorry the lighting wasn't working with me the last few days) I did 2 martini glasses, 2 wine glasses and a candle









So your challenge is to get glittering :

1. Glitter a set of glasses OR a set of candles OR something a bit larger like a bird house or vase

2. If doing glasses make little decorations for the stems so everyone knows who's glass it is

3. Remember to add a bit of holiday embellishment like a ribbon or a candy cane to that drink Smile

You will get 3 tickets for each set OR larger glittered item you do. You have all week so get glittering and link your image back to this thread. Make it a dazzling week

I just used the tombow liquid glue and brushed it on with a paint brush. If this was to be permanent I would look into the correct adhesive an a finishing spray for it.

ah, ok. i guess if you are going to burn it and really use it as a functional candle that is a good idea versus investing in a permananent adhesive.

i do want to get some next time i go to michaels. can't wait to try this!

I bought some plain laser-cut wooden snowflakes @ Michael's for $1 each and then covered them with Martha Stewart glitter. Funny, I'm not much of a glitter person other times of the year but I always use a ton of it on Christmas projects!
