This week, Miss Kris is obsessed with sparkle. And so are we! With a little bit of glitter...OK a LOT of glitter, we're glamming up some champagne bottles, balloons, and party hats just in time for a shimmering and shiny New Year.
- Champagne Bottle, with the label removed
- foam brush
- Glitter Tray, the lid of an old box works great!
- 2 tsp glitter
- Spray Adhesive
Anyone can bring a bottle of champagne to a party...but instead, you could bring your own glam squad in a bottle with this festive glitter-ized bubbly. Miss Kris shows us how!
For this project you'll need: A champagne bottle with the label removed, glue, a foam brush, a tray or box to catch all your glitter (your vacuum cleaner thanks you), and of course: GLITTER!
Step 1: Place your bottle inside the glitter tray and squeeze a generous amount of glue directly onto the bottle's surface.
Step 2: Use your foam brush to paint the glue evenly over the entire surface of your bottle. Don't be afraid to add more glue if it gets too thin.
Step 3: Make like Tinkerbell and shake out some pixie dust! Cover the whole wet glue surface with glitter until you have a fabulously festive bottle of bubbly. Leave it in the box to dry and maybe shake it off a touch before you head out. Glitter loves to stick around, and your lint roller will be your BFF tomorrow.
*Optional; you can use painter's tape to section off areas of the bottle and use different colors of glitter to make a striped or ombré pattern. I mean, it's GLITTER. Go crazy.
All you need for this project are some balloons, spray adhesive, your glitter tray (aren't you loving that life hack?), and you guessed it, glitter.
Step 1: Spray the bottom of your balloon with adhesive, making sure to get the place where it's tied off.
Step 2: Immediately shake your glitter onto the balloon. Spray adhesive dries super fast!
Ta-da! Done. Talk about some serious sparkle.
