Christmas crafting items are starting to appear in the stores en masse, and we papercrafters know to shop early to get the best selection!! I found these white bottle trees in sets of two (about 3 1/2" and 5") at our local dollar store. Cute as they are -- they can always be better and I thought of the new Maya Road Ultrafine Glitter we just got in at Flamingo Scraps!
|I painted glue on the ends of the branches -- I used Martha Stewart Glittering Glue |
and a regular paintbrush, but any white glue should do as well.
The next step was sprinkling on the glitter --
|I used a glittering/embossing tray to catch the extra glitter and|
to make it easier to return the unused glitter to the container!
|Spraying the trees with a clear floral sealer will help adhere the glitter|
|These little trees are still fragile, as glittered objects are wont to be, |
but with care they should last for years to come!
