To Make These Glittery Silk Flowers You Will Need:
Fine Glitter or sparkling sand (any color)
Hot glue and hot glue gun
Glittery puff paint or puff paint
The first step so to water down some of your white glue in a disposable cup. I like to make mine 2 parts white glue and one part water.
Now, use a paint brush to paint on the glue in any pattern you would like. You can make polka dots, stripes, swirls, and even hearts. You could also cove the entire Silk Flowers in white glue and paint for a solid glittery Silk Flowers.
Now, roll you Silk Flowers in the glitter. Glitter sand or colored sand also works really well. If you are trying to coats the entire Silk Flowers you may find you need to add a second coat of glue and glitter once the first coat dries.
To finish off the glittery Silk Flowers you need to let them sit and dry. You can let them rest in an empty cup or lay them in a bowl.
Now, for a really unique and glittery look for your Silk Flowers try leaving the Silk Flowers in the same color plastic they came as. Roll them in the watery glue, and then roll them in glitter that is the same color as the Silk Flowers. You can roll them in white or silvery white glitter. It will emphasize the original color of the Silk Flowers and give a more elegant and timeless look.
You can also use this color scheme to paint on polka dots in the same color as the silk flower.
Now, if you don’t want the kids to get glitter all over the house try using glittery puff paint to decorate your Silk Flowers with a little sparkle. It gives the same glittery look minus the mess.
These simple glittery silk spring flowers can be woven into a wreath. They will add some sparkle to your front door with the warm spring weather.
These glittery silk flowers could also be used in flower arrangements on the dinner table, napkin rings, and more.
Buy silk flowers with wires in the plastic stems to make these glittery spring flowers into napkin rings. The wire will allow you to bend the stem of the silk flower into shapes that will hold a fabric napkin. Simple create a spiral out of the along stem. You can make this as long or as short as you want.
Don’t forget about the leaves when you are making these glittery silk spring flowers. Use fine green glitter to make the leaves a sparkly addition to the craft project. The fine green glitter will enhance the look of the leaves without detracting room the glittery silk flower bloom.
