Last week I shared this project over at A Glimpse Inside. It's a quick and easy way to turn ordinary sticks and branches into frosted, icy ones for the holidays.
I love the pretty, frosty branches, floral picks and other accessories that are available this time of year.
However, they can be pretty darn pricey and I see no reason to pay for something that I can easily make myself for just pennies.
Here's what you'll need:
- sticks and branches
- white spray paint (cheap-o is fine-o)
- spray adhesive
- epsom salt
- coarse white glitter
- fine iridescent glitter
When dry, spray a coat of adhesive onto the branches, then move them over an old cookie sheet and sprinkle the epsom salts onto them.
I do this over the cookie sheet so I can reuse the salt that doesn't stick.
Move the branches away from the cookie sheet and spray with adhesive again. Move them back over the sheet and sprinkle with the coarse glitter. Repeat the process with the fine glitter.
When dry you have some pretty, sparkly, frosty sticks. Oh yeah, that were practically FREE!
