Easy glitter Christmas art ideas

December 10, 2020

Oh my goodness, I've had more fun than ever decorating for the holidays this year! My husband keeps commenting on how festive the house is. (It is every year, but I've had a blast working on some crafty projects this season.) 

I have been working with Krylon spray paint this year and have completed a bunch of smaller and bigger transformations -- you can see our painted kitchen hardware here, our outdoor makeovers and the little touches on our Thanksgiving table here!

This one was probably the most fun because it involved GLITTER. The good kind that sprays where you want it, not the stuff that gets all over the place and haunts you for months. ;) Krylon has a fantastic Glitter Blast spray paint that I loved!

These are all super easy and REALLY inexpensive projects! My first project was in our mud room. We have a giant chalkboard I built soon after we moved in and I wanted to add some fun touches. I started with this wood sign I picked up at the dollar store:

I gave it a couple coats of the Fusion All-in-One paint in their Satin Bright White color:

Once that dried I gave it a top coat of this Glitter Blast spray paint in the color Diamond Dust:

SO FUN. It goes on so easily and dries super fast. 

Look at that glitter!:

It's hard to see in photos further away but it glimmers in real life. I'm so impressed with this product. 

I drew some simple pine trees and snow on our chalkboard and hung the little sign next to them:

The trees take seconds to draw -- the key is turning your chalk on it's side. :) 

I just love it -- even our 13-year-old commented on how cute it was:

Next was a simple sign for our basement. This was another dollar store cut out:

This one got two coats of the Krylon Fusion paint in Gloss Red Pepper:

By the way, those Amazon boxes make for an easy spray paint spot!

When that was dry it got some glitter, this time in their Cherry Bomb color:

If you've used glitter spray paint in the past and not had good luck, you'll be pleasantly surprised with these products. They go on like a dream and the nozzle stays clear use after use. They cover well so you use very little. 

SO pretty!:

I used an IKEA Ribba frame (they are the best!) and some birch wrapping paper as the background:

You can see how I used that birch paper for pretty holiday candles here! I'll show you where this ended up in our basement next week. :) 

I also sprayed our stocking initials with the glitter spray as well. We all need a little bling here and there:

My final super simple project started with a wood laurel wreath from the Target dollar spot:

I used the Krylon Fusion All-in-One spray paint in Satin Black (that I used on our kitchen hardware) for this one. 

After the black paint dried I added a couple quick coats of the Diamond Dust Glitter Blast spray on top. I used a free printable and hung the wreath on top for a simple display:

It is SO beautiful on top of the black! The red glitter would be pretty as well. 

My giant upholstered bulletin board got some simple Christmas decor and I just love it:

There are SO MANY possibilities with this glitter spray paint! How gorgeous would that be on plain glass ornaments? (I just gave myself an idea.) If you have outdated holiday decor that needs sprucing up, this is the perfect solution! 

I really love that the glitter stays put -- I planned to add a top coat to these but it's not needed. It doesn't have any fall out at all and sprays so easily. 

So much fun! It has made my heart happy to work on these crafts this season. It's been healing in a way, after this crazy year. :)
