This week has been focused on baking so I thought I'd take a break from the food and showcase a really fun craft.
You may remember awhile back when I showed you what glitter and Mod Podge could do with the post Sparkle Shoes.
After seeing a similar idea for a light switch plate on Pinterest, I decided to give it a go. (I don't have a connected link to the inspiration, it was a broken link.)
I unscrewed the plate from the wall and gathered my supplies.
I taped the screws to the back of the plate so I wouldn't lose them. This turned out to be a great idea. I didn't lose them!
Next I poured a small amount of Mod Podge in a plastic cup, and mixed it with my glitter of choice.
The first large portion of glitter was not enough, so I just kept on adding more and more.
Finally it was enough!
I applied a nice thick layer of glitter Mod Podge, but made sure to smooth out any clumps.
Next I sprinkled dry glitter atop the glitter Mod Podge while it was still damp.
I was super bummed because I had so much Mod Podge left over. I had nothing else to glitterize so it was all wasted Mod Podge and glitter.
I let the switch plate dry overnight.
The next day I applied a layer Mod Podge.
I tried my best to keep it smooth, as this will be the top layer. I still struggle with overdoing it with the Mod Podge sometimes. I just keep adding more and more, and before you know it, it's thick and clumpy. Less is more.
Another 24 hours later - TA DA! I have a sparkly light switch in the 'Get Ready' room. I love how this room is getting girlier by the day.
I love it! Let me know what you think! Don't forget to 'Like' Kiss My Smash on Facebook! www.facebook.com/KissMySmash
