Pinecones were the perfect thing to try out first because I had a bunch of them still sitting outside from one of our nature walks.
Here are the supplies you will need to get yourself that perfect snowy shimmer. Elmer's glue, white paint (I used flat), glitter and diamond dust. The "glitter" is more like tiny ice crystals than typical glitter. The diamond dust is similar, it just has a subtle shimmer to it. I bought mine at Hobby Lobby.
I mixed my glue and paint together using a little more glue than paint.
Then I painted my mixture on here and there...
I had a little helper sprinkling on the glitter followed by the diamond dust.
While the pinecones were drying, I looked around for something else to do. I bought this believe sign a couple years ago with plans to spruce it up but never did until now.
I painted on my mixture and sprinkled the glitter over a big bowl. It took me about five minutes and I love how it turned out. Can you believe it? ;)
I've seen this done on garland and wreaths and it looks beautiful. I'm off to finish decorating my mantel. Have you started early this year too?
