Some of my favorite childhood memories involve a simple bottle of Elmer's glue and a tube of sparkly glitter.
Few things were more satisfying than the pure delight in squirting out those scrolly lines of white glue, dusting them with glitter, and then shaking off the excess to reveal an instant work of art. Even as an adult, I still like to glitter things. :-) No doubt you can find a myriad of different glitters at your local craft store, but have you ever considered vintage glitter?
I adore vintage craft supplies and vintage glitter is even prettier than the modern variety!
Ebay, Etsy, and tag sales are great places to find it at bargain prices - often in unsealed, unopened tubes.
Multi-colored varieties are my personal favorite, as I love how no two mixes are exactly the same.
In honor of the upcoming holiday season (and my love of all things that glitter), I will be beginning a new series after Thanksgiving that will feature a month's worth of glittery finds and sparkly projects - from the prettiest polishes and handbags to glittery cookies and crafts! Stay tuned...
