I'm getting a head start on Christmas this year instead of waiting until November and stress myself out! Last year I made a glittery church. This year I am adding to my collection as I found a few more pieces at Goodwill.
This is what they looked like before I spray painted them white and then added the glitter.
You can see I used a different process with the new pieces as the color is whiter. The glittery church was originally white and I added the glitter with white craft paint. On these newer ones I spray painted them first with white primer, then a couple coats of white paint. I adhered the glitter with glue only on the snowy areas, not the whole piece like I did with the church. I must say I prefer the latter method.
I inserted flameless tea lights inside them and "dimmed the lights" (as Ryan Seacrest would say on American Idol LOL).
If I see more pieces at GW I will probably grab them too! They are so much fun to transform and who can resist working with glitter!
