glitter stars


These glitter stars are still among the top favorites of all ornaments I have made for the holidays.  A simple plastic star coated with german glass glitter and some kind of focal glued into the center.  I  have used vintage earrings, Buttons, rhinestones and flowers.  Jazz them up with a tulle circle under the focal first.  We all love how much they shine on the tree. I featured them last year on my blog and they still get a lot of pins on Pinterest. 

They have tarnished over the past year and look even more vintage now. 

I am a freak for glass glitter.  I buy tons of ornaments on clearance after Christmas and cover them with glitter. They look so gorgeous once you glitter them up.  Take a look at all those scraggly ornaments in the clearance bin and think about how you could rework them for a fresh new holiday style next year.
