The one with the glitter trinket dish DIY



What you'll need:
  • glitter, I used silver, pink and purple glitter
  • glue
  • a brush
  • a small (old) dish, bowl, saucer or plate
  • varnish

What you'll need to do:



 Pour the glitter in a bowl

If you're using different colours, give them a good stir

 
Cover your work space with paper, things can get a bit messy.
Apply the glue with your brush

Pour the glitter over the bowl

 Let dry for a couple of hours and apply a thin layer of (spray) varnish.
Use the paper that covers your work space as a funnel to pour back the
glitter that didn't stick to the bowl.

  5. What a fun DIY! Great idea to add a coat of varnish to make sure the glitter stays in place during use.

    1. So far, it has been sitting on the same place. I used some glitter in the past, that ended up everywhere (the varnish idea didn't come to mind back then)
