All that glitters...






Is really glittery...even my hair has glitter in it. My pics are not that great but I wanted to share a few things this evening. I glittered some paper mache pumpkins and made a glitterey candy corn cone. I did some Dollar store skeletons as well. Lots of glittery fun. I think I will be making more of the glittery candy corn cones....would be great for treat holders. Happy Sunday all & thanks for the well wishes for son. He is feeling better, but has developed a rash...so keep him in your prayers please. Cherry

That candy corn cone is the cutest thing. That would make a great gift for neighbors & friends filled with treats!

Cherry...the world (my world) would be a very dull place without glitter...I love all that you do. I so wanted that cute nest banner...will you be making more?

By the way, thanks for the visit and kind comment on my Scotty Dog's efforts...yes, I truly came home to that wonderful suprise...

Hope your little one stays on the mend...rashes are icky, itchy, yucky...make him wear mittens! HAHA!

Warmest Regards,

I love the glittery cones. Is it regular ol' glitter or something special?

Valarie said...

Love all the glitter! Went to the pumpkin patch this weekend and planned on glittering some of them , but time got away from me. Maybe this week. :)

AndreaLeigh said...

Tausha said...

ok-as usual-I love everything! I have got to make me one of those cones. Are they hard? Would you mind telling me how to do it?
I wish I was close cause I would love to walk through your house, OFTEN!
I still have not ventured into the glitter world. I must jump on that bandwagon-and soon. I am such a slacker! This week!
Wait till you see these cute little houses that i found on a blog. She made them out of food boxes! They are darling! Too cute for halloween and christmas! Lets see how ambitious I can be-shall we! Hope that your sons rash goes away. There is really nothing worse than a sick kid!

Love the glitter. I've been toying with the idea myself. A little worried that the baby would stuff it all in his mouth though. :)

I second the others that are in love with everything. I too am very interested in how you made the cones. Do you mind sharing tips on how to make those? Your decor is so pretty, elegantly spooky! Jen
