Halloween Bling

Jen over at Tatortots and Jello is having a linky party and a giveaway for Krylon Glitter Blast. It's a glitter spray paint!

Anyhoo, she has asked everyone to link up something we made sparkle and shine for a chance to win 6 cans of Glitter Blast spray paint. Plus (yes there is more), a $50.00 gift card to a choice of Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Walmart or Jo-Ann.

I need to win. So the chance of winning has gotten me off my lazy butt to post the following projects from last Halloween.

First I made some glitter spider web votives.

I started out with plain Jane votives. Well they didn't start out so plain, they actually had a sticker on them with my parents 50th wedding anniversary info on it. I just peeled off the sticker to make them plain. And don't worry, I did save a few of the ones with their wedding info on it for keepsake. I just didn't need 30 of them.

Next I used a toothpick dipped in school glue and drew a spider web.

Then I sprinkled Martha's black glitter over the glue. Let it dry & then brushed off the extra glitter.

Looked fabulous on my table after adding tea light candle.

Next I glittered up a bunch of spider rings from Dollar Tree.

These spider rings would be the perfect candidate for the Krylon Glitter Blast spray paint.

I placed some glitterfied spider rings on my candelabra.

And added a few to the base of each goblet.

Next I made a bat mobile. Sans Batman.

I cut out bat shapes from black & white scrapbook paper. Most of my paper wasn't double sided, so I glued 2 together. I then traced glue around the outside & covered in black glitter.

And finally I wanted some small black crows. I found some white doves at Dollar Tree (sorry, no before photo). I first spray painted them black, then covered them in school glue & gave them a shower of black glitter.

This project would have been so much faster & easier with the Glitter Blast spray paint.

So you can see, that I love glitter. I just don't like it when it gets in your eyes. I'm thinking the Krylon Glitter Blast spray paint would take care of that problem.

If I win, I'll be sure to let you know. I'm itchin' to get started on this years Halloween decor. Do you think it's too early to start decorating for Halloween?

I thought so.
