Craft Roundup: Glitter Holiday Projects

The holidays are just about here! Shine and sparkle things up with a DIY headband, kitchen magnet, house ornament or some glitter garland.

Craft Roundup: Glitter Holiday Projects

Let's talk about glitter. Some crafters love it, others loathe it. No matter your opinion on the matter (I happen to love it – and, for those that don't, I suggest the Martha Stewart Glitter Cleanup Roller!), glitter adds a festive kick to your holiday crafting. This week's roundup is all about the sparkle, from just a bit to a whole lot. Whip it into creations you can wear in your hair, use to deck the fridge or tree with – or even string along the mantle to welcome a certain someone on Dec. 25.

 

Holiday Headband

Thanks to this Pintrest pin from Michaels, you can make a glitzy holiday headband with just a few supplies. They've blinged things up with a golden poinsettia and ribbon with a tinsel effect. What other baubles would you add to your own?

 

Sparkly Silhouettes

Look at all that glitter! Rust & Sunshine has an easy idea for a kitchen magnet makeover – including any cutout shape your heart desires, Mod Podge and, naturally, lots and lots of sparkle.

 

DIY House Ornaments

There's just a little bit of glitter on these sweet home ornaments, made of stone clay, from Creature Comforts. If your child has a few friends over, why not set up an assembly line of clay cutting to make a tree-ful of these?

 

Glitter Garland

The black and silver tape used here is great for New Year's Eve (substitute with ribbon, if you can't hunt down the tape). Just imagine a variety of other holiday colors on additional strings! Get shining with the how-to from Omiyage Blogs.
