A Very Hoosier Holiday: My Glittery Church Craft
Shannon from Fox Hollow Cottage has written a very fun holiday post where she shows us how to spruce up thrifty items to decorate our homes. She transformed a little church figurine she found by adding glitter to it.
Isn’t it adorable? After I saw it I immediately ran out to the Goodwill store and was fortunate to find a church too!
Here are the directions for glittering up a little figurine:
- Wash with warm soapy water and allow to dry overnight.
- Then brush paint with white craft paint and while still wet sprinkle on a ton of glitter.
- Spray with polyurethane afterwards to seal and make sure the glitter sticks.
Here are before and after photos of my glittery church:
Mine was a music box that didn’t sound very good anymore so I took out the mechanism. I thought I could maybe put a flameless candle inside. Also, I wasn’t sure if I should paint the roses at first, but it was too hard to paint around them so I painted them white too. First I spray painted the flowers a couple times because the white craft paint wouldn’t cover the color.
I am just thrilled with my little church. Thank you Shannon for the inspiration to make this fun holiday project!
I love to make crafts, decorate the house, and write about everyday occurrences. I am a very happy woman when I am doing just about anything creative. I hope to offer inspiration for you during your visit. Find Patty at Patty’s Pretty Things blog.
