Going Wild with Pink Glitter for Pink Saturday!

I have never been much for crafting things with glitter but when I spied the most beautiful tube of pink glitter sittin on a shelf at the craft store, I couldn't pass it up.
I thought to myself that there just has to be something I can make with that gorgeous pink glitter.  
Living on the southern coast of North Carolina in a small beach town, we have abundant seashells and tons of pine cones.  Our back yard borders with the golf course and we have lots of squirrel friends and about 12 loblolly pine trees.
So, I decided what better combination than to glitter up some seashells and pinecones!
Here's how they turned out.

I will tell you that this was one messy project! The outcome is pretty but, gettin there is tedious.  That's why I didn't make but a few.  Plus, I wasn't sure how they would turn out.

Oh and by the way, these are my cute pink slippers that my Sister gave me last week while I was visiting.  They were wrapped up with some Bath and Body body wash and a scrubby and lying on my big comfy bed.  How sweet.

Don't forget, for some more wonderful pink stuff, go over to see  Beverly
at How Sweet The Sound.

Oooh Sissie...
I am lovin those little pink lambies. Aren't they just the sweetest things ever? Love them.

Those pine cones are absolutely luscious and tied with the bow, oh how rich they look. I love that combination on a plate. So beautiful. The seashells ofcourse I love as well. I love seashells plain even, but that pink really does make them pop. Don't you just love it when you buy something to try, not sure what will happen, and then it turns out to be the best ever, then you go back to buy some more and it is sold out. Hope you got plenty because I have a feeling, you are going to be needing it.

Please stop by and say hi. I so love it when you do.

Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

I just love the pink pinecones and glittery seashells! I have some seashells stored away. I may just have to add some glitter to them . . . which of course will go EVERYWHERE, LOL

Have a wonderful Pink Saturday!

It may be messy Sissie, but look how perfect they are. You did a great job and I think they would make the perfect embellishment for gifts too, Happy Pink Saturday, Char


I love what you did with the pinecones and glitter. I may have to borrow that idea:)
Those slippers are very cute. made me smile. Pink Blessings!

Riet said...

HI. I love what you did with the glitter and I love those slippers. Happy pink Saturday

Jane said...

I love how your pink pinecones turned out! Working with glitter is a messy thing. I've used it on the snowmen I make but that's about all I've glittered.
For my silver pedestal I posted about yesterday I used E6000 glue. So far it's holding OK.
I thought about you the other day. I was in Hobby Lobby and they had pink bottle brush trees (looked just like the black and silver ones in my post a couple of days ago). They are 1/2 price right now! I saw them and immediately thought "Sissie would love those". Don't know if you have a Hobby Lobby close by (if not and you would be interested in them let me know).
Have a great weekend.

I LOVE your glittered cones and shells. I had to buy my shells to embellish...but I'm going to glam them up too. Nothing like a little bit of glitter to make things cute. I haven't tried it, but I wonder if spray adhesive would work? It would be a lot faster...but pretty stinky.

HaPpY pInK SaTuRdaY.....and Happy Thanksgiving too!


LemonyRenee' said...

Oooh, those pretty pinecones look good enough to eat! And the tootsies, to!

Your cat, Gabby, looks just like a cat I used to have. She was a crab of a thing, but we loved her anyway . . . Hmmm, I can here my kids saying that about ME someday. LOL

Happy Saturday!
