Glittery Snowflakes

I’m on a big snowflake kick this year.  It started with my Snowflake and Mercury Glass mantle and it has been spreading throughout our house like some kind of snowflake epidemic.  Blame it on the lack of snow last year and so far this year…

The newest snowy addition to our house are these glittery snowflakes.

They started out as plain ole MDF snowflakes from the craft store.  Then, I added two coats of light blue paint.

Then, I added a layer of modge podge and sprinkle white glitter all over them while they were still wet.

It took awhile to paint and glitter them so I just stuck to three which I added over the little table in our hallway that holds the Advent Calendar.
