I saw some inspiration on Pinterest (where else, right?) using glitter to create a silhouette of a reindeer. It was cute, but I am just not really into animal heads- even the cardboard or glitter ones, so I thought I would try a different shape. At first I wanted to do "Ho, Ho Ho" but after cutting out the BOO for another project, I was not going to try another O. So, I went with a Christmas tree. Here are my materials:
-Canvas (I used a 9 x 12 two pack)
-I was going to use the ribbon to put a bow on top... but it didn't go so well.
Cut out your silhouette & trace it on the canvas.
Then, add glue. I spread it around with a Q-tip, trying to cover all of the pencil lines.
Then- LOTS OF GLITTER!! Ah!
After my first glitter round, I had some holes. I just added more glue with a Q-tip & repeated.
So where to put it?!? I already have a small print on my mantle, so not there. It was a bit too tall for any of my shelves. So, the gallery wall! I took down another print & hung this right up. Now my gallery wall is merry & bright!
What easy holiday crafts have you been doing? What have you been making glittery?
