25 crafts of christmas // glitter


I love woodland Christmas decorations (I'm thinking about using that as a theme for next year's tree...yes, I think that far ahead), and natural or all white Christmasy things, but to me, this is truth:

Christmas = Glitter.

Two years ago, glitter was what we used for everything on our Christmas tree. This year I'll be using a few sparkles, but not nearly as many...and I'm almost a little sad about that.

Yes, this is a controversial craft supply, because yes, it does get everywhere. But I think that just makes me like it all the more. The good news is that you can find it varieties that are a little less messy (although there is still some sparkle on our kitchen cabinets from a glitter glue incident that happened YEARS ago!).

What do you think? Yay or nay on glitter? I hope you said "yay" because here are some sparkly projects that I especially love for Christmas (or anytime!):

Shine on, crafty friends!


  1. Yay for glitter - always yay! But then I have two small daughters so there may be an element of "if you can't beat em, join em" !

  2. Yay, for the glitter in all of its forms for Christmas and other times of the year.

  3. love the glittery dinosaur! Don't know if we will set up a tree, but I will go find myself some dinos to gliterize

  4. Always a yay on the glitter. I'd continue to wear it on my eyes if people wouldn't accuse me of being a stripper, not to mention it isn't very professional.

  5. Oh Mollie, I love the way glitter looks but as a retired elementary school teacher I can not celebrate it like I used to. I still have flashbacks to some of these incidents. Glitter. . . . . everywhere! As my college age daughter tells me, Glitter truly is the herpes of craft supplies. Keep on glittering though, it Iooks beautiful,I just don't want to do it myself.

  6. My kids always called glitter "woman dust." I loves me some glittered up Christmasy stuff too!

  7. Definitely yay! I really like using glitter glue as well, no mess but the same effect.
