~ WARNING ~
Kim from Party Frosting is freakin hilarious!!! Seriously, you might pee yourself! The emails she sent me last week in preparation for her "guest post" had me spitting out soda! For REAL! She was a HOT MESS! (Her words not mine!!!) I almost felt bad... ALMOST! HeeHee
Hey! It's Kim here from Party Frosting! Hijacking G's blog! Special thanks to her for inviting me over! She's definitely one of the coolest mom's on the block!
(Awwww... I'm totally blushing!!!)
...After many failed attempts at coming up with a project and many bottles of wine (pressure got to me lol)... I finally found success in glitter! Now everything in my house, including my fiance, is a bit sparkly, but it was worth it! I was inspired by this tutorial but figured glitter would fit better into my party theme this year!
Glittery Nutcracker Guys
Hideous Dollar Store Nutcracker guys
Paper (anything large will do)
Wine (optional, but recommended)
Step 1: Rip hair off of ugly nutcracker guy - recommended to do in private as to not scare the
Step 2: Place in a box in a well ventilated area (a little stinky) and spray well with adhesive - leave weapons in place
Step 3: Immediately come in from the cold garage holding him by as little touching as possible,
stand him up and start shaking glitter. Keep repeating steps 2 and; 3 until fully covered - make sure to pour while he is right side up and upside down to help coat all spaces.
special note - crease your paper before doing the glitter, this will help when you pour the glitter
back into the jar
extra special note - you WILL get glitter everywhere no matter how hard you try - I find wet
paper towels to be the best cleanup and nail polish remover to help with any adhesive on your
hands...and then assure everyone that sees glitter in your hair the next day that you have NOT
been dancing on a pole all weekend ;o)
Step 4: You can add a clear final coat - but I found that it dulled the glitter shine a bit... so I just say stop here and enjoy!
Simple and VERY inexpensive!
Kim!!! You TOTALLY rocked it! Your "ugly nutcracker guys" went from luke to hot in a glittery sec!
Hugs chica! I heart you!
