You can also share your creations with us in our Glitter Luv Creations Facebook group. We love to see our glitters in action!
You will need a few basic supplies to get started:
1. Card stock paper tags or wood ties
2. Glitter (we used the Father's Day Plus Glitter Pack, but any color would work)
3. Mod Podge
4. Paint Brushes
5. Tape (washi or painter's tape, a tape that won't rip the paper if using paper)
6. Vinyl Decals (optional)
Let's get creating these Father's Day Glitter Ties.
1. Trace or cut wood or paper into tie shape.
2. Paint a background color if desired.
3. Paint on a thin layer of mod podge.
4. Sprinkle on glitter.
5. Allow to completely dry.
6. After dried, paint another thin layer of mod podge if wanting to seal in the glitter.
7. Add a vinyl decal.
8. Seal again with mod podge if desired.
To create stripes or other designs, tap off areas using painters tape. Apply glitter to one section at a time. Allowing to dry in between.
Finishing the Look
Finish up the look by adding stripes, decals, or a design. Remember to seal with a thin layer of Mod Podge to avoid glitter shed.
We created a stripe pattern on one, and then added a decal on the solid one. Then gift to dad on Father's Day!
Try using these ties as a Father's Day card or tag for his gift by adding a special note on the back.
Or decorate with these cute ties. Make a little garland out of them. Or go for a mini version and attach them to toothpicks to create cupcake toppers.
So many fun ideas! What will you do with these cute ties???
