Whew! I just arrived home late Sunday night from my whirlwind remodel project in Mesa, Arizona…and was hit pretty hard on Monday morning by the fact it was December 17th! Crap!! I have soooo much left to do to get ready for Christmas! I had a custom paint project dropped off yesterday, so somehow between my last minute holiday shopping, I need to squeeze in painting a dining room table and EIGHT chairs before Christmas! <deep breath>
So if you run into me at the grocery store or the mall looking a little crazy with paint in my hair, pretend you don’t see me when I dive into a nearby clothes rack to hide instead of saying hello. 🙂
But for now it’s about the glitter…
In an earlier post (you can see it again here) I made glittered letters with the german glass glitter I ordered online from Meyer Imports. Well, I couldn’t leave all that glittery goodness alone! I picked up a variety of pinecones from the craft store and went to work on creating a little more sparkle around the house. It’s about as easy of a project as it comes (I said easy, but I might mention messy) but the results are worth the clean up. Just apply glue to the areas on the pine cone you want to highlight with a small paint brush or sponge brush and sprinkle with glitter. That’s it!
Here are the large pinecones I added to the tray on my coffee table to add a little winter glitz:
And many more I added in clusters in our upstairs Christmas tree:
You may not hear from me much this week…but I’ll check in and let you know how it’s going. Maybe I’ll see you at the mall 🙂
