I found this really neat, fun and inexpensive Christmas craft idea from MarthaStewart.com that I did with my kids a few weekends ago: glittering up some dollar store plastic deer as cute table decorations! They look soooo adorable I thought I’d share!
Tools and Materials:
Plastic deer, from a craft or toy store
Glittered Deer How-To:
1. Hold a toy deer by one leg; use a paintbrush to coat head, body, and other three legs with a thin, even layer of white glue.
2. Spoon glitter onto deer; gently shake excess into bowl. Let dry.
3. Repeat process on last leg; touch up bare spots by dabbing them with glue and spooning on more glitter.
If you can’t find plastic deer toys at the dollar store, try your local Michael’s and Jo-Ann’s craft stores too. I couldn’t find them at my local craft stores so I went to Etsy and got them at $5 for 6 pieces. I love this Christmas craft idea!
Enjoy crafting with your kids! 🙂
