German Glass Glitter

I bought a bag full of plastic stars at the Torrance flea market.  I glittered them up with silver glass glitter, and then made little tulle circles, glued a vintage earring in the middle and hot glued the whole thing to a star.  I LOVE how they turned out.

You can find glass glitter on line at Meyers Imports. It is pricey, but worth every penny.  The sparkle you get from glass glitter is different than regular glitter from Michaels.  It ages and tarnishes over time for a cool vintage look.  It is NOT for kids though.  It is made from vintage mirror shards, and is not safe for children. 

I have been glittering up everything I can find.  It really is true... everything looks better with a little glitter.  Here is a merry Christmas sign I bought at the Dollar Tree and glittered.  It is going on a wreath I am making for a future post.  I have glittered up old ugly ornaments, bottle brush trees, candle glasses, Funky plastic figurines from the 70's...  Dig out the glitter and see what you can sparkle up this season.

They are Beautiful, Karan! What did you use to glue the glitter to the stars? I gotta try this!

it was regular white glue Mel. Not even Elmers... a generic one I bought at Wal Mart for 37 cents.
