Glittered Christmas Candy Bowl

Posted by Tabitha on 4/27/2017 to Projects
Glittered Christmas Candy Bowl

This lovely candy dish was found at a local thrift store. The bowl cried out for a little glitter to make it into a wonderful Christmas table decoration.

For this DIY Christmas decoration project you will need:

  • a glass bowl or candy dish (I chose something with a design.)
  • A poly glitter (this project used Metallic Red Hots)
  • Beacon Glitter-It (good for glass)
  • 3 paint brushes, two had softer bristles (a fine and a medium size brush) the other was a stiffer bristled brush (you may choose a variety of sizes depending on your bowl or dish)

Using the softer bristle paint brush I painted on the Beacon Glitter-It glue.

Moving VERY quickly (as the glue dries quickly) I poured the glitter onto each stripe (right after I painted the glue) and pressed the glitter into the glue.

Using the stiffer bristled paint brush I carefully brushed off the excess glitter from the edge of the design onto the paper towel on my workspace. Then I poured the excess glitter back into the cup I used to hold the glitter between applications.

For the tiny straggler glitter bits I used the medium soft brush to get the final clear glass look.

The final bowl looks great and will be a sparkly addition to my Christmas table decorations.
