Front Door Winter Sparkle






The chilly and crisp air is definitely upon us.



I enjoy celebrating the changing seasons, so for winter I chose these easy sparkly snowflakes for our front door.







My photos are not detailed but this project is easy and inexpensive.




Materials:
Acrylic snowflakes
White spray paint (optional)
Glue
Glitter


All you need are these clear acrylic snowflakes you can get from the Dollar Tree. The large ones are a dollar and the smaller ones come in a 3-pack.






First I spray painted the snowflakes white. Spray painting them white is not necessary I just think colors appear more vibrant when they have a white base underneath.

Use any type of glue, I had Tacky Glue on hand but any spreadable glue should work.
*I first tried spray on glue but that doesn't give a good coverage for the glitter so I recommend brushing on thick glue.

I used a few different brands of glitter in three different shades of blue. I don't think it matters what kind of glitter you use, just pick out whatever color scheme you're going for.

I worked on one snowflake at a time and shook on the glitter and let dry.

To hang, I used double sided foam sticky tabs. However, some of my tabs did not hold up.

My front door faces south and I guess the sun heated up the stickiness a bit and the snowflakes fell, so I just used a hot glue gun to attach the snowflake to the sticky tab.



Enjoy the sparkle!
