We all need more light in the winter.
Anything that sparkles catches my eye. I am like a crow.
I want to decorate mama’s door at the facility with something different every month.
(Nothing says forgotten like a Christmas wreath the end of January.)
I ordered giant silver snowflakes instead of white to contrast with the white doors and white blinds in the windows.
I wanted each one to be unique and have variations. This meant adding more glitter from my glitter collection.
I painted different sections of the flakes with Mod Podge glue.
Then I sprinkled different glitter on those sections. Keep the flake contained in a box for this step.
I like the ones with three types of glitter best. They reflect and refract light differently to make the flake more interesting.
I have augmented some as they dried with more glitter.
The left over glitter in the box was used on the last flake. I call it the ‘Everything Flake.’
This was a fun thing to do on a dreary cold day. I plan to share the extra flakes with those folks who still have a Christmas wreath on their door.
