Glitter a go-go

I'm not much of a "glitter gal" but when Hobby L0bby puts all of their glitter on sale for 50% off -what's a girl to do?! I bought myself a multi-colored pack of glitter, some modge podge and put jewelry making on hold for a bit. My friend Kristi is making the CUTEST glitter cups over at her site Kristi's Gifts, so I thought I would try my hand at one. I made this silver & black cup for my sis in law in NYC - I added the hair jewels as my personal touch. It is supposed to be NYC themed, but I really can't imagine anyone walking down the streets of Manhattan sipping out of one. :)
Next, I decided to heed
Grace Violet's cry to save the birds. (Basically glittering the ugly little silk birds sold at Hobby Lobby) I made this bird and butterfly mobile for Lydia's room. I am going for an all handmade theme. Cute huh?
Lastly, I found these hideous black silk birds at the dollar tree. So I covered them in black glitter, sprayed some sealant and Voila - cool Halloween decor. I'm thinking next...glittered pumpkins!

I haven't dabbled in glitter yet, but it seems to be the craze right now! I think I might just try it. I was thinking about doing a glitter pumpkin. Your projects look great!
