I’m a sucker for glitter. It just makes everything so much prettier and glassware is no exception! The question is…how to wash glitter? To see what I use for glittering Click Here
If you love the glittered goblets, but aren’t the crafty type that’s ok! You can purchase a set from me. If interested please Email me to figure out glitter colors, glass type, quantity, etc.
The only added step that you need to do to make stemware washable (hand wash only) is to spray 1 or 2 coats of clear sealant over the top of the glittered area (enter ‘how to glitter’ in the Search the Site section at the top of this website). I use a glossy top coat. Tape plastic over the part of the glass that you don’t need to cover with a clear coat.
I’m taking these to an overnight Bachelorette party this summer. The bride loves sparkles, so we are all going to wear glitz and sequins as a theme. I thought glittered wine glasses will be the perfect addition to the party. We’ll use them that night, be able to remember which glass is who’s, and the bride can take them home with her.
With summer approaching I need to have a set to help celebrate July 4th! For more 4th of July ideas Click Here
Nothing says Christmas like glistening sparkly champagne glasses!
Make glasses to match your wedding colors, any holiday, or a whole set of just black or silver glitter for a posh look.
I made this set for my book club when I hosted and we read ’50 Shades of Grey’. For more ideas on a gray themed party Click Here
One of the nice things about have a child is that I’m able to do some of the things I used to when I was a kid…May Day baskets being one of them. Granted, Lauren is only 14 months old, but she gives me an excuse to do things and have them be from ‘her’.
I found some clearance Easter pails for 50 cents, spray painted them, and planted petunias (even if our neighbors don’t have green thumbs petunias seems to grow through anything). Happy May Day!
I think glitter is the most fun. Unfortunately, it also can make the biggest mess….take your time to set out paper or plastic to work on.
- What you’ll need: modge podge, a cheap paintbrush, glitter, and plastic eggs (or whatever item you are glittering)
- Brush the glue onto the egg…yes, this is messy.
- Sprinkle glitter all over the egg…yes, this is messy too. You’ll probably need to rinse your hands off after each egg, so you can work on the next one.
- Let them dry overnight. Set up around a centerpiece, in a glass bowl, or hang them on a tree!

I love tissue poms. They are such an inexpensive and easy way to decorate and really make a room festive. The nice thing about using tissue flowers as decoration is that tissue paper comes in a ton of colors and it goes a long way. You can glue them onto sticks and make arrangements in vases, you can string them up across a room or tree, or you can tape or tie them to almost any surface.
You will need:
- Tissue paper, a scissor, floral wire, and a wire cutter
1.Depending on the size you want the tissue flowers to be you will vary how small you cut the tissue paper (if you cut it at all). For small to medium size poms I recommend 9-12 sheets of paper. For larger poms I recommend more sheets of tissue in order to keep them looking full.
2. Fold the tissue, accordion style (you don’t need to put a hard crease on the fold) and cut a piece of wire (about 5 inches seems to work well).
3. Twist the wire around the middle of the folded paper
4. Cut the ends of the tissue. Cutting the ends in various ways will change the look of the finished tissue flowers.
5. Carefully pull apart the tissue. To prevent and reduce tearing, I recommend separating by a few sheets at a time and then pull apart individual pieces.
*You can save the scraps that you cut from the ends of the poms to use as confetti or to fill glass votives or jars for extra decorations.
