My crafty love gave to me...
A sparkly, $1 Store village!
I've been wanting a little village for our Christmas decor for a while now, but I don't want to spend the money on a nice one... and I honestly don't have the space to display a nice one - especially with little hands that are naturally attracted to pretty breakables!
So, on a trip to the $1 store (looking for glass vases to paint) I came across these...
(sorry, I don't have pictures for the next steps, a little someone broke my SD card with those pictures on it!)
So, what does any crafty, girly girl think of? Glitter.
I mixed my Diamond Dust (a clear, coarse, chunky glitter) and my Modge Podge together in an attempt to lose 1 step. This didn't work, the Diamond Dust wasn't sparkly at all. So, back to the 2 step method.
I used a foam brush and brushed on Modge Podge, then sprinkled the glitter on with a spoon. I set them aside and let them dry over night and viola! A sparkly village for $7!
See you tomorrow for more 25 Days of Pinterest!
