DIY: glitter dipped stick wall decor.

So a few months ago, I was in flight boutique in park city and they had these sticks hanging down from the ceiling that I'm calling "glitter dipped" because they had glitter running about 1/2 way up the stick. I fell in love and decided I had to make my own. So I did. Probably in the top 3 for cheapest crafts you'll ever make.

 1.you need: sticks, I decided to go with 5, but make as many or little as you want! I just got them from my backyard but I think you can buy sticks at any craft store. I got the rest of my supplies from Hobby Lobby. Glue(that huge thing was $1) glitter(I used the online hobby lobby 40% off coupon and got it for $3) and a paint brush.

2. I used cardboard as my base just because it was big enough for  the stick.



3. Pour some glue in a cup and paint it on the stick. Easiest way to get 100% coverage!


 4. I painted sections of the stick so the glue would still be wet then poured glitter on those sections. 




5. Cut a notch in the stick so when you hang them, the string won't slip out of place.






6. hang them! I first tried to use clear thread but it wasn't thick enough and broke because the sticks were too heavy! So I opted for hemp.

The end!

  5. Awesome job. Thanks for this. I'm inspired. Might have to do this for some sticks we're putting around our yard outside for Christmas. I'll be sure to link to you as my inspiration on my blog if I do. :)
