I warned you…
This is an easy, less than 5 minute, less than $10 DIY that adds the perfect amount of sparkle to any room.
What you’ll need:
- frames (I got mine from Ikea; $3.99 for 2)
- glue and a paintbrush (Elmer’s glue is currently $0.67 at Target!!)
- glitter (Creatology brand from Michaels, 2oz was $2.49, you’ll definitely only need 1 pot)
Working with one frame at a time, remove back and glass/plastic. Set frames on newspaper. Cover borders with a thin, even coat of glue.
Immediately pour glitter liberally over the glue
Allow to dry overnight.
If you have it, add a coat of spray advehsive to top; if not, spray with hairspray (seriously, it works, this is what I did) to minimize glitter from falling off.
Who doesn’t love a little sparkle? (and a little glitter in their already paint speckled hair?!)
And quite possibly my favourite way to use these: I glued push pins onto the back and framed up my fave quote on my cork board in my office.
