No other topic can divide a group of crafters quite like glitter. Some people love it and use it as often as possible, while others consider it “the herpes of crafting” (the originator of this quote will remain anonymous). Whether you love it or hate it, glitter seems to be the great equalizer in the craft world. Anyone can go out and buy some, and you can use it for both basic and complicated crafts. Lately, it seems glitter is everywhere – it’s used to upcycle old clothes, update thrift store finds or even decorate rocks. You can find glitter crafts for Halloween, Christmas, Easter and everything in between.
Add a little sparkle and fun to your life with glitter. It adds a whimsical, girly touch to even the more basic crafts. If you’re new to crafting, start by upcycling an item you already have and simply add a little glitter here and there. To create Party Glitter Pumps, you only need a pair of shoes and some gold Glitter Blast. If you’re feeling more adventurous, you can create your own Glitter and Rhinestone Rings and sprinkle loose glitter onto a Cool2Cast mold.
