DIY Glitter Garland

There are many wonderful things about Christmas. One of my favourite is that it’s a good excuse to cover everything in glitter. I love glitter! This week I made a glittery gold garland to hang up in my room, and here’s how I did it πŸ™‚glitter garland 1glitter garland 2

You will need: String or a bead chain to hang your decorations onto, PVA glue, gold glitter, paint brushes, gold spray paint and decorations to hang on your garland. I got all of mine from Wilkinsons. You can use pom poms, baubles, mistletoe, twigs from the garden, pine cones, bows, ribbon, whatever you like!

If any of your decorations aren’t already gold, you need to spray paint them. Do this outside so you don’t gas yourself / ruin the carpet, and then leave your decs to dry β€’ Once your decs are dry, paint shapes onto them using PVA glue and dunk them in the gold glitter β€’ Once the PVA is dry, shake off the excess glitter β€’ Tie your decorations onto the string! My baubles and bows came with ties, and I tied everything else on using gold ribbon

Now you’ve finished, you can hang up your garland and admire it. Have you ever hand-made christmas decorations? I hope you’re having a wonderful Wednesday πŸ™‚

  1. I love glitter! Especially gold glitter. Last Christmas I ended up glittering anything I could get my hands on- gold glittered pine cones were the result.
