DIY Glitter Collar

Whew! I can’t believe Christmas is over. It’s crazy how fast it flies by. And yesterday it snowed (well, flurries) so it was *almost* a white Christmas. Now we get to shift gears and start thinking about New Year’s. Do you have big plans? With three kids 5 and under making it to 12 o’clock will be a miracle for us! But we are planning a New Year’s brunch so I made a little something festive to wear.
DIY Collar Making glitter ornaments reminded me how fun glitter and Mod Podge can be. It’s fast, easy, cheap – and makes a statement. What else goes with hot pink pants? :)

DIY Glitter Collar

Cut out your collar from the the felt – I recommend revising the template slightly so that the front pieces of the collar stay together. Mix your glitter and Mod Podge together and paint it on the felt. Let it dry completely and add another coat – or fill in empty spots – if needed. Then cut a slit at the ends of the collar and use chain or ribbon for a closure. Super easy!

What are your plans for New Year’s?

    Oh my gosh, yesss! Stephanie, this is absolutely fabulous! I love love love love looooove this idea! You can’t go wrong with some glitter!

    How was the shedding factor? I don’t mind leaving a trail of glitter in my wake but the hubs minds from time to time. lol. Did it stick pretty well or was there a lot of stuff flying loose? I’ll probably try it either way, but I was just curious! ;)

      The shedding wasn’t too bad Jen – some got on my shirt near the collar but I didn’t leave a trail. No complaints from the hubby here :)

      I am in love with my hot pink pants – they are suprisingly comfortable! New Year’s Eve is the hardest holiday I think – so much expectation but all I really want to do is go to bed :)
