{diy} {Valentine’s 2 of 7} Glitter Clothes-Pins

Here is another cute little Valentine’s {diy} for you!  I love to use these little clothes-pins to clip on gift tags.  They are such a sweet little touch that go a long way.  Don’t stop there though; use them to hold up your garland, clip your mail together, or even add a magnet on the back and hang photos on your refrigerator!

1. Start with a traditional clothes-pin.
2. I like to paint one side of the clothes-pin with red acrylic paint, because the glitter doesn’t stick to every last part of the wood.  The paint will give the illusion that it’s all glitter and it will make it look very rich.  Let the paint dry completely (usually about 5 minutes).
3. Generously brush on glue (I like Mod Podge in Matte).
4. Immediately after applying the glue, generously sprinkle your glitter (I used Imported German Glass Glitter from Meyer Imports) over the glue and let sit for about 10 minutes.  This allows the maximum amount of glitter to stick.
5. After 10 minutes, shake off the excess glitter (save it for another project) and allow to dry for another 10 minutes or so.  Then to ensure that the glitter doesn’t fall off, spray each glittered clothes-pin with Krylon UV-Resistant Clear Acrylic Coating.  Do this outside or in a well-ventilated area and allow to dry completely.  That’s it!

I also made some pink ones, using the same technique and supplies.  This is such a fun and easy {diy} and you can make them in any colors you’d like!  I’ll see you back here tomorrow for another Valentine’s {diy} project, and in case you missed it, here’s yesterday’s. ♥RobbieLee

{humpday tutorial} Easter Pastry Toppers

I just love how quick and easy these Pastry Toppers are to make.  They are just foamy-glittery Easter Egg Stickers stuck together with a tooth pick wedged between them!  Not to mention, it only costs a dollar or two!  Woo-hoo, now, that’s my sort of last minute party spunk.
