If you are a crafter, then you’ve got glitter. It can’t be helped. It’s a badge of honor, really, to have glitter in every crack and crevice of your craft space and stuck to your hands and shirt and under your nails. It’s glitter. That’s what it does and really, would we have it any other way? A little glitter makes anything more fun, more exciting and more memorable. Click Image For Tutorial (click image for tutorial)

Glitter Birthday Candle

If there’s ever a time to use glitter with abandon, it’s on special holidays like birthdays or New Years. These two projects offer different methods for marking those glitter-worthy days with sparkly candles. Both are fantastic projects, both are simple and so, both are must-do’s for any crafter. Candles are always fun, but candles with glitter are much, much better.

This is possibly the best glitter project I’ve seen. As a long time glasses wearer and a lover of glitter, well, it’s really the perfect project. How can you resist? I don’t think I’d start out using my good prescription glasses for this project, but sunglasses or drug store reading glasses would make excellent candidates for this project, and just think! With so many glitter color options available, you could make a whole wardrobe of glitter glasses!

My little girl is (of course) just as glitter obsessed as I am, so glitter covered clothing is always a hit with her. We’ve done several variations on the glitter tee and each and every one has been worn and worn and worn until there are too many holes to keep wearing it. This tutorial is especially good if you’re looking for one to try (and I highly recommend that you do, especially if you have a sparkle loving child!)
