just a little more glitter…

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:

Pine cones & starfish

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 🙂

  1. You know how I feel about sparkle , what a fun idea! A touch of nature with some shine, two great things that go great together 🙂
