Glitter Your Holidays (Martha Stewart Crafts Giveaway)

I am keeping my holiday decorating pretty simple this year.
We have our "kid approved" tree and crate,
some nutcrackers, lights, a holiday card display,
 and some sweet paper trees I made.
(tutorial happening tomorrow - that photo is a teaser!)

 But no matter how low key the decor is...
I must have glitter.
A little sparkle.
A touch of whimsy and light.
An unexpected twinkle on the tree, table, or just because.
A few glittering delights make the other decor shine.

There is still time to add a little glittery goodness to your holidays as well! 

I have long been a fan of #marthastewartcrafts glitter,
and when I received the Rich Essentials Glitter Set -
24 dazzling colors for all of your glittering needs.
I was almost overwhelmed at the colors and possibilities.

In fact, I think I had too many projects and not enough time...so I am saving a few of them for a later date. (the giveaway for your own set of a Rich Essentials Glitter Set is at the end of this post)

My basic supplies for these projects were simple:
Martha Stewart Crafts Rich Essentials Glitter Set
Plate Joining Biscuits (size 20)
Mod Podge and a brush
Covering for your table/workspace
I also used some ribbon and beads I had on hand
Hot glue

Wreath Ornament
I used a caning jar lid as my base and stamped joy onto a fabric circle. Mod Podge was applied to the biscuits and then glitter (heliodor) to the tops and edges.

Twinkling Teardrop Garland
I drilled a hole in each biscuit, covered it in Mod Podge and then glittered (white gold) it all over (let it dry completely) and finished it by stringing them on a red ribbon. 

Dressed Up Candles
I decided to add some simple holiday glow to the ordinary too.
How about covering some old bakeware (I think these are jello molds) in Mod Podge and dousing them in glitter (graphite) - that is all I did here!

I like to roll the metal portion of votive candles in glue (Mod Podge) and glitter (heliodor)  so that when I set it in a clear votive holder there is some extra shimmer and shine.
(burn candles carefully - use a glass votive holder)

Add sparkle to your holidays!
Use Your Imagination
The Martha Stewart Crafts “Decorative Boxes,” in designs like stars, poinsettia and pine cones, can be covered in glitter and used as ornaments, decorations or unique gift boxes. One fabulously simple d├ęcor idea: glitter a group of them and then cluster together as a table centerpiece.

Worried about the a Glittery mess?

Martha Stewart Crafts has the solution! Keep crafting surfaces clean by using the “Glitter Tray and Rack,” which features an opening in one corner to easily brush excess glitter back into its container. And, if something does spill, the “Glitter Cleanup Roller” makes removing it a cinch. Plus, the roller remains sticky even after washing!

I am adding this to my Christmas List - you should see me and my house!
Remember I am a messy crafter! 

So go ahead and add a sparkly sprinkle to your holiday cards, decorations, party invitations, place cards or gift tags!
