Do It Yourself

Punch Drunk Glitter Crafting.

There are just some days when you need to do a yourself a solid and just craft. Tuesday was my day. I was tired, had no desire to write that dreaded paper (which I KILLED), nervous about my upcoming interviews, and had the undying urge to glitterify something…ANYTHING. I wanted to glitter bomb the hell out of whatever I could get my hands on to.

I was in punch drunk glitter crafting mode.

Luckily I knew I was going to be making gifts for my work team. A little back story, we are a team of three. A trio of smart, educated women who are very ambitious. I couldn’t ask for a better team to be apart of and am very fortunate to call my Team Lead and colleague (Teacup Chihuahua) my work family. We are there for each other during the most difficult of times, including the stressful trials and tribulations we’ve been facing lately.

What better way to make someone’s day than with a personal gift? Seeing as we are all adults and I like a nice alcoholic beverage, I took to Pinterest (and inspiration from a fellow craft exchange buddy who shares my love for glitter) to craft these special gifts.

There was nothing stopping me and I was off.

The materials used: Fast Grab Tacky Spray, Glass of Your Choice, Low Odor Clear Finish, and so much glitter you feel like a unicorn just pooped on you!

Unfortunately, WareBear was not home to take pictures so I had to just mentally document it. This isn’t rocket science to figure out. Here is another half ass DIY!

What’ll you’ll need:

  • Fast Grab Tacky Spray
  • Glass (Wine, Martini, etc.)
  • Krylon Low Odor Clear Finish
  • Glitter (So much you feel like a unicorn just pooped on you)
  1. Mark your spot on the glass of how far you want to go up on the stem. (I actually just played this by ear and eyeballed it.)
  2. Using the Fast Grab Tacky Spray, evenly coat the bottom of your glass with adhesive.
  3. Apply glitter to entire bottom of glass. (Just pack it all on, you can never use too much glitter – its virtually impossible to do so.)
  4. Let glasses sit for about 15 minutes before applying Krylon Low Odor Clear Finish.
  5. Place glasses in safe place to dry for 3 hours or more.
  6. Add candy, drink mix, etc. and wrap to give away.

Following these simple instructions, I ended up with this!

And yes, I did make one for myself.

Happy crafting!
