I thought it would be pretty easy as I already had a load of PVA Glue left over, but I soon learnt that the stuff doesn't stick the glitter properly. What you need is some strong spray glue!
Here's a quick image tutorial (including trial and error) of how to make a pink glitter frame:
You will need:1. A picture frame (I got a cheap silver one from Wilkinson's for a couple of quid).
2. Industrial strength spray glue (You can pick this up in Hobby Craft for about a fiver).
3. Pink Glitter (I got a bottle for a couple of quid in Dunelm Mill).
4. Hairspray (70p in Home Bargains).
How to make a Glitter Frame:
|So, I'm all set. I got my PVA glue, cheap picture frame and pink glitter.|
|I coat the frame in PVA Glue.|
|After sprinkling the glitter on, I find it's not sticking properly|
|Ahhh! Spray Glue. Will this work for an even glittery finish?|
|Now, that's more like it!|
|I rest the frame against a couple of paint bottles to spray the sides.|
|I give it a quick coat of hairspray to harden the glitter.|
|Finally, the Glitter Frame is complete.|
