When it comes to Christmas, do you like to break out the glitter as much as I do? Well, you know my motto by now: You can never have too much glitter!
And with the holidays just around the corner, what better excuse than to add even more glitz and sparkle!
So today I'd like to share with you one of my latest creations, a glittered Christmas swag, that I made for my Etsy shop.
I began by pulling out all of my supplies, and Christmas goodies that I bought last year on clearance after the holidays. I decided to go with a musical theme for this swag, since I had picked up some gorgeous musical notes covered in German glass glitter last year at Pottery Barn. I had forgotten that I'd even bought them, and was so excited when I pulled them out of my stash!
I wanted the faux greenery swag to appear as if it had been lightly dusted in snow, so I very lightly misted it with spray paint. Yes, you read right, I said spray paint! You know how addicted I am to the stuff, and there's not much that I don't cover with it!:)
The swag also has real pinecones, and I just love the way they look all frosty. Then came the fun part, adding the embellishments. I also had these adorable little silvery glittered snow flakes, which I thought were a perfect addition to the glittered musical notes.
And to further add to the musical theme, I made some of my glittered roses out of vintage sheet music. While they are quite time consuming to create, I think they really are the piece de la resistance to the swag! Oh, and I added tiny rhinestones to the centers of the roses for even more bling!
I'm so happy with the way this came out, and I think it's even more prettier in person than in the photos!
