How to Glitter Accessories so the Glitter Actually Stays On.

20 Minutes

Don't you hate it when you glitter something and then the glitter brushed off even after it's dry? You'll never have that happen with this simple method for glittering!
Do you love glitter as much as I do? Then this tip will be your best friend!!!
Take your accessory and brush the area you want to glitter with some Mod Podge. Make sure to cover the surface evenly and thoroughly.
Sprinkle on a good layer of glitter. It's ok if you get it on the non-glued surface because you are going to take care of that first.
Gently brush off the extra glitter with a soft, dry paintbrush. Then get ready for the most important part of this tutorial. This is what will keep your glitter from brushing off willy-nilly! For the most important tip, visit

    I've got 2 glass dishes shaped like 4 leaf clovers that I didn't know what I could do with them. Sparkly green glitter will make 2 cute St. Patrick's Day dishes! Thanks for the idea!
