I HATE glitter.
Maybe that makes me a stick in the mud. I can live with that. Glitter gets absolutely everywhere and is nearly impossible to clean - never mind the fact that if I EVER work with glitter I perpetually have it on my face and strangers saying to me "Hey, you have glitter on your face!" (Thanks. I know).
I sent them outside with a card table and their materials. The entire time they were out there I was wondering if I was a genius or if it was somehow going to go terribly awry.
It turned out OK. The shells got glittered, the patio got glittered, the chairs got glittered, I think even one of the dogs got glittered, and most of the mess remained outdoors. Of course then the kids tracked glitter from one end of the house to the other on their clothes and hands (and yes, faces). Overall it was much less of a disaster than it had the potential to be.
And in the end we got these:
|Shells from our beach trip a couple of years ago + Modpodge + Martha glitter|
Very pretty Martha Stewart Colored glittery shells.
I still HATE glitter.
I'll keep you posted,
