A Tiny Glitter Village

Here’s a happy little project I did for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.  We enjoy having a few winter decorations up for a month or two after the holidays.  I adore a glitter village but have no place to set one up so I decided to make one in miniature using the GSL Tiny Plant Table

This one is so simple to put together, just 5 pieces!

I decided the stand should be white to enhance the snowy scene so gave  each piece a few coats of white acrylic paint on both sides then assembled the piece using tacky glue.

Using an X-Acto knife I cut tiny house shapes from polymer clay and used a square match to indent windows and doors before baking them off.

I also rolled out some cone tree shapes and dug out my stash of nail art supplies, aka polymer cane flower slices, to give the houses a bit of decoration.  You can find these in nail supply stores and on Amazon.

After baking, I applied a thin coat of tacky glue on each piece then tossed them into a container of superfine glitter to get them nice and sparkly. When the glue was dry, I added a bit of chunkier crystal glitter onto the rooftops for some sparkly snow.

They were then glued onto the top of my assembled table to form a tiny village.

 

I wanted to make sure not to get glitter on the sides of the table so I used painter’s tape as a barrier before coating the village floor with a thick coating of tacky glue. Then came the fun part…. dumping a LOT of crystal glitter to make a thick blanket of snow!

To finish the look, I used some of the GSL Snowflake Shape Set Minis as a decoration. I got white acrylic paint into the little crevasses using a soft bristled brush.

When the paint was dry, I applied a thin coat of white glue and tossed them into the same superfine glitter to give them some sparkle.

I glued them onto the front of the winter scene and finished it off with a bit of blue bling.

Once it’s fully dry, tap off the excess glitter and enjoy your winter wonderland!

    This is beautiful. I love your blogs. Your trips you take are all so fascinating. Maybe in the fall Larry and I can plan a stop over on our way to the 127 yard sales (as of now we plan to go).

    Love you lots,

    Aunt Pat
