Did you know . . .

you can glitter just about anything?? Just like I said you can collage just about anything ~ the same holds true for the beautiful ultra fine clear glitter of Martha's. I bought these little bunnies before Easter and knew this is what I wanted to do with them. Then maybe cover a mache box, add a pretty crepe paper circle and place one of these on the top!

Well, this is as far as I got. But there's always next year, right? All you do is take it outside and if it has an opening on the bottom maybe stick a pencil or dowel rod inside and use as a handle and lightly mist spray glue all over. Then dust with the ultra fine glitter and instantly you have a sparkly little bunny (or whatever you choose!). I embellished this guy with a pink bow tie. Now I wouldn't try this on a fine collectible but pick something up a the thrift and see how you like the look!





I'm finally getting around to putting this little neckace on Etsy today. Created from an old watch face using the tinest snippet of lace and a 24" chain . . .



I've kept the road hot for the last couple of days so finally today I'm staying at home to get something made!!! It's already Wednesday ~ what is happening to the weeks? Have a wonderful day,

xxoo, Dawn

Thanks for the glitter tip! I love the necklace, it reminds me of something very vintage and Victorian, like one of those chains the women wore that they attached all those little needle work tools on. Wonderful!

Jann said...

I love glitter, too--always reminds me of Fairy Dust--what a clever idea; the bunnies look wonderful--and oh, that necklace is just beautiful. . .
