Glitter Crowns…


Today I want to share a pretty little project I made recently that is small in size…yet brings a large amount of sparkle to your holiday table!

These sparkly Glitter Crowns take just a few items and a few minutes to make!
 
Supplies ~
Several cardboard tubes ~ from paper towels, t.p., wrapping paper, etc.
Gold and Silver Krylon Spraypaint
Mod Podge
Gold and Silver Glitter
 
Start with your cardboard tubes and cut them into 2-3 inch high sections (depending on how tall you want your crowns to be). Then cut the points on each section…you will now have a pile of these…

Next, spray paint your cardboard crowns ~ be sure to spray the inside of each crown too ~ some silver and some gold…

Now get your Mod Podge and glitter ready…

Lightly paint each crown with the Mod Podge and roll in glitter…

These festive little crowns can be used several ways. As shown above, I used some as napkin rings…

And they are equally cute as place card holders…

For these photos, I set up a display at our shop Hip Chick Designs, to showcase how nice they will look on your holiday table…
