Adding a Little Sparkle to Christmas - Michael's Glitter Challenge

Pin It!
I just love sparkly things, don't you? That's why I think a little bit of glitter can liven up any craft project. Recently, Michaels Crafts sent me a wonderful package filled with all kinds of beautiful glitter & challenged me to create something with it. Yay!

Just look at all this glitter awesomeness! Recollections glitter is available exclusively at Michaels stores. There are so many nifty colors AND  it comes in different textures like: very fine, chunky, & tinsel {which can help achieve different looks for all kinds of craft projects}. You can buy it individually or in sets - starting at $3.99. 

For the challenge, I decided to use glitter to add some pizzaz to my Vintage Christmas porch decor this year. 

The "Cherry" glitter is a perfect addition to my candy cane sign. {Applied with Mod Podge.}
The neighbor was throwing away a bunch of aspen branches. I think they are SO pretty. I "planted" a large branch in a red pot with insulation foam {this comes in a can & you can buy it at the home improvement store}. "Snow" & "Bling" glitter - mixed with cotton & faux snow - make the branches look sparkly & magical. The "Snow" glitter is opalescent & it sparkles like real snow - though it doesn't show up well in the photos!

Instead of hiding my dairy box, I decided to make it part of the display. After all, the colors were right & it does kind of have that "vintage" feel. It looks cute with the logs piled in front of it. {See the snow & glitter on the logs?}
Thank you to the folks at Michael's for inviting me to be a part of this fun challenge. I love the way my porch turned out & I can't wait to make other fun projects with my Reflections glitter!

FYI: I was compensated by Michael's Crafts to test this product & write a post about it. The opinions I expressed are completely my own!
