  • Cover (Almost) Anything in Glitter With This Simple Tip

    I personally love glitter and honestly spend way too much money and time searching out sparkly knick knacks . I  recently found a  great tip on Pinterest that gave me a great mess free way to cover pretty much anything in glitter.  I personally used this tip on an empty candle jar.   All you need is a fine opaque glitter, Mod Podge  and a foam brush, mix the glitter and Mod Podge together and cover a object of your choosing using the brush,  most things will need at least 2 coats.  Let the object dry for at least 24 hrs  and  you will be able to show off your newly glittered possession.  This would be a great craft to do this holiday season for centerpieces!

    " I buy a ton of candles and always try to keep the jars once they are done being candles because they are great storage holders (I use a few to hold my makeup brushes).  So instead of just cleaning it out and leaving it as is, I glittered it!  I used a different glitter than the Martha Stewart for this one and it was a very fine, almost powdery glitter which I didn't like as much.  It took many more coats to get it to be that glittery.  The Martha Stewart glitter is the perfect consistency and opaque which I think looks better.  To clean out almost empty candle jars, boil a pot of water with about an inch or two of water (depending on how big your candle jar is and how much wax is left) and put the candle in the pot.  It will melt the remaining wax in the jar and then you can dump the wax straight into the garbage and then wash the container out.  Use a fork to scoop out the wick holders."
