Project Sparkle Horns
Meet sparkle horns. Yep. These antlers are all glittered up. I have been thinking about this for awhile, and finally decided to try it - just to see if it would work - and I am kinda pleased with the result. I know, mixed feelings about glittering the remains of a once living thing. . . perhaps a little strange. Ah well, remove that inkling, and think of it purely as a way to do something unexpected inside your house, and voila! Nothin' but fun with ol' sparkle horns. Simple process - just water down some good old Elmers and brush on one section at a time - make sure you lay down some paper to catch the excess glitter (and there will be alot of it). And go to sparkle town! I think it would be great in one single color, but being who I am - I had to have one antler stand out from the rest. Right? Gotta quirk it up (because otherwise glittery antlers are way too normal, right?). I used the terrific Martha Stewart glitter (rememeber my Christmas glitter balls?!) which I acquired at Michaels. But I think any old glitter will work fine. Here's to sparkles!
