Make this dazzling Shutter Glitter Headband and Jewelry Holder to beautifully display your favorite accessories and to have them easily accessible!
Hi friends! I’m excited to be back post-baby working with my favorite paint company, DecoArt! They have come out with some amazing new products that I’ve been so excited to try out, especially the GALAXY GLITTER! All the heart eyes for this dazzling beauty!
I knew I wanted to make a fun project with pink glitter for my baby’s room to hold all of the adorable headbands she’s gotten… she is one well accessorized baby! 😉 I love it so much that I may “borrow” it as some point as a jewelry holder for myself to go along with my DIY earring holder! 😉
I’ve had this unfinished shutter from Walnut Hollow that I’ve been waiting to use until I found the perfect project for it and this is it!
Glitter Handband and Jewelry Holder
- Unfinished wood shutter or repurposed shutter
- Fine grit sand paper
- Americana Acrylic paint in Titanium White
- Galaxy Glitter paint in Pink Cosmos
- Paint brushes (large and small)
- Craft or wine corks
- Industrial adhesive
- Tape measure
If you’re using the unfinished wood shutter, sand lightly and wipe free of dust. Paint with Americana Acrylic Titanium White. I would suggest getting an 8 oz. bottle of Titanium White as the unfinished wood is more porous and absorbent. Also paint all of the corks with the Titanium White. The corks would also look great with pink paint as a base but I wanted a little more of a contrast with my glitter.
Once the white paint has dried, you’re ready for the fun part… the GLITTER! Using a small, firm paint brush, dab the Galaxy Glitter Pink Cosmos on all surfaces of the corks. Dabbing is better than stroking the paint brush if you want to get more coverage with the glitter, which of course you do! 😉 I did 2 coats of the Pink Cosmos to cover the corks completely and it makes them look mosaic crystals! I wish you could see the reflection and multi-dimension of this stuff close up… it’s simply stunning!
Once the paint has dried, apply industrial adhesive to the bottom of each cork and position on the shutter. You can use a tape measure if you’d like to make sure the corks are evenly spaced.
Hang the shutter on the wall with mounting hardware or command strips and load with your favorite accessories!
Are you ready to glitter all the things?! I sure am! 😉
