10 Frugal Crafts You Can Make with Glitter

I love glitter. It's cheap and it sparkles...just like me!  Ok, I just laughed out loud as I typed that. Seriously, that was really funny.


Ok, moving right along...

Thanks to Pinterest, we now know there are a million or more uses for glitter. I've pinned probably half of those so I thought I would share a few of them with you. Oh, if you happen to see the 'homemade glitter' pin be sure to skip that. You can't make glitter at home. Seriously. Don't click on that pin. Don't do it. Don't even try it. Your glitter might catch on fire, smoke may come from your oven and it might even scare your children. Not that I would know...

{10 Frugal Crafts You Can Make with Glitter}


DIY Glitter Rings


DIY Glitter Keys (Simply paint on glitter with nail polish or gliter glue).


DIY Glitter Balloons

DIY Glitter Tube Bracelets


DIY Glitter Snow Playdough


DIY Glitter Heels


DIY Glitter Jar


DIY Glitter Pasta Snowflakes


DIY Chunky Glitter Necklace


DIY Glitter Glass Ornaments (Yes, I realize it is not Christmas. I'm thinking red/white/blue for July!)


All of these crafts are very inexpensive, most would cost less than $5. They also make great gifts too. I think life is better with glitter. Everything deserves a little sparkle. The next time someone cuts you off in traffic, just toss some glitter at them and be on your way. Wouldn't that just be nice?

Can a glitter globe be made with magnetic glitter, so one can simply pass a magnet over the top of the globe to draw the glitter to the top and remove to let it fall? If so, where to find the glitter and how viscous or what is the optimal mix of what fluids to allow as slow a "glitter falling" as possible?
