bow-tied glitter deer


This sparkly deer is a project that I wish I had come up with.
It's trendy but classic and hello, glitter. I've just seen it all over Pin-blog-insta world and knew I had to have my own. 

After a quick Google image search for "deer head silhouette", I came across a free pattern here. I traced the pattern onto a canvas and painted it a little at a time with Mod Podge, adding glitter as I went. When I was done, I thought it needed a little something more. Enter the sparkly turquoise bow tie. I just glittered a piece of thin cardboard (I think it was the back of packaging for something), cut out a bow tie shape, and used a tiny dot of hot glue to stick it on. I figure if I hate the bow tie next year, I can pull it off and fix the little spot with a fresh dab of glue and glitter.

 (In case you missed it, I shared about the colored bottle brush trees here.)
