I’ve loved the recent trend in glittery home decor, especially the little glitter critters in some of the high end design stores I’ve seen in some spring displays this year.
Being the crafter that I am, like many of you, I knew I could save money and make my own, and that I could probably make it a fun project for the kiddies too. I already had two little Easter bunnies at home that I previously and endearingly named shiny bunny and scary bunny and then I found two more creepy-red-eyed-twin resin bunnies at my local Dollar Tree.
This turned out to be one of the simplest projects I’ve done in a while, albeit not the lest messy.
Resin, plastic, or paper mache bunny
A container to catch the glitter
A willing kid who wants the chance to play with the sparkly stuff
A brave grown-up willing to let the little ones use glitter
First, put the bunny in a plastic container to help hold the extra glitter.
Then, paint the Mod Podge onto the bunny.
Next, sprinkle with glitter. Shake off any excess, and let dry (this doesn’t take too long). Then, check for missing or thin spots of glitter, and repeat.
We let ours dry overnight, and then reapplied one more layer of Mod Podge as a sealer. Once this final coat was on, it eliminated glitter dropping by about 95% with careful handling.
That’s it. Finished.
See, I told you it was easy!
Now, go find some bunnies, and get to glittering!
