So if you know me or have been following the blog, you know that I am one sparkly obsessed girl. My mom even tells me that ever since I was a baby, I was always being drawn to items that were sparkly or glittery. I have even been known to say that if I could, I would have every item I own some sort of glittery, sparkly, metallic. Alas those can only be dreams since I like to say I have taste too. And a house or wardrobe full of all glitter, all the time is just ghastly. I also want to have a happy marriage and I think a sparkly house would make the husband yearn for a deep, dark man cave far away from me. So even I know that I have to just drop in the glittery goodness in manageable amounts both in my wardrobe and home. Since I am always looking for dare I say subtle ways to add more glitter glam to the house, I thought I would do a glittery round-up today to help everyone get ideas on how to add some more sparkle to your home.
Take glass bottles and douse them in adhesive, glitter, and a sealer coat to make glitter vases, candle holders, or just stay on their own. This is something that you can do with recyclables for a great upcycle project! I have been meaning to do something like this for a long time. This may be my kick start now!
These are actual serving pieces that you can use, but I thought it could be fun to trace these shapes out of cardboard, cut out, and then glitter ‘em up. Wouldn’t that be cute artwork for a kitchen or dining room? On my list now too!
A great way to add a punch of sparkle is through small glittery objects. Nearly any object can be glitterized (can I patent that word?!) to add just a little something to a room.
Um, hello. That is a glitter coffee table. Yet, it weaves into the room so effortlessly that it’s not overwhelming. Well done. But don’t know if I could slide this one into the Rapp household…

Glitter and light! Yes! I am all about ambient lighting, so putting this in a great vase and putting it in a corner of your living room would really up the cozy element.
I think any cute little animal grabbed from a toy store or a thrift store can get super cute and super chic with a little color and glitter. How much do you want this adorable hippo? Can I get away with this with no children in the house to blame it on? I say yes!
And for the grand finale…
Oh. My. Gosh. I am racking my brains to figure out how to put a full fledged glitter wall in our house. Even if it is just in a closet. Amazing! Maybe in my dream giant closet…Anyways, drool glitterfest over. How have you bedazzled your home? Please share all the sparkly details!
