Glitter Party!!

bow   arrow art glitter lights

Helloooooo! I've got glitter fever girls.
So let's get this party started, ok?
First, go stock up on tons of sparkles.

You know it's going to be a great craft day when the check out lady at Michael's says to you, 
"Whoa. That's a lot of glitter."

Next, you'll need to take that old strand of lights that doesn't work anymore...
You know, the one you painstakingly hung and then found out didn't turn on?
Yeah, those.
Cover 2 of the bulbs in glitter, then think to yourself,
"This would be waaaay easier if the bulbs weren't still in the sockets."
No wait, I already did that, you can skip that step ;)
Just take all the bulbs out k?


Moving on, paint each bulb with mod podge* + glitter-fy it!


*Side note: If you're not rich enough to pay $7 for a tiny bottle of mod podge, do what I do.
Equal parts cheap glue & water is the way to go friends.

Oh yes, the finished product.
Beautiful & festive yeah?
I'll be hot gluing mine onto some twine.
But they'd be real cute in a glass vase too... or as fun little ornaments.

Please don't think I was going to stop at one glitter project.
No way, I'm on a roll.
