Hi guys, it’s been a bit since I got crafty so I thought I’d spruce up my mantel with some extra winter decor. If you remember, I changed up my mantel decorations for Christmas and went all white and metallic, so I was pleasantly surprised that my Christmas mantel was actually perfect for all of winter.
The softness of the deer, wreath, garland, and silvery trees are a wintery wonderland in my living room. I did decide to make one more item to add (big surprise there, I know) – a sparkling wooden snowflake craft.
I’ve had this Sparkle Mod Podge (affiliate link) for a while and I have been dying to try it. You see, I’ve come to terms with the fact that glitter and I just don’t work well together. I think it’s so pretty but it seriously hates me. Every time I’ve tried to use it, it becomes a big mess and then I’m picking glitter out of every crevice in my home for weeks. I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect with this Mod Podge – sparkles inside the glue? It sounded too good to be true.
You guys, it is amazing! From the moment I brushed it on, I knew this would be a match made in heaven. Take that, glitter!
Here are my supplies:
- Thin wooden sticks of your choice – popsicle sticks are easily available at craft stores, or rulers
- White craft paint
- Sparkle Mod Podge (Affiliate link… which means I might get a few cents from Amazon if you make a purchase after clicking this link. Thank you for your continued support!)
I started with 10 6-inch wooden rulers and painted one side white.
Cut 5 of them in half. (I actually did this pretty easily with scissors since the wood was thin, but you might have a better tool to use!) Cut a triangle off one end of each like below – alternate which side you cut.
I love those subtle sparkles.
Let’s hope this winter doesn’t include much more snow than this. Stay warm, friends!
And check back in a few days for a new chair makeover that I’m working on now. 🙂
