Tarnished Glitter Snowflakes

You may have noticed the snowy hallway from previous posts.
I purchased silver pre-made snowflake ornaments from the Dollar Tree, in various sizes (the big ones were $1 each, and then 6/$1, and 10/$10 in packages)
Here they are prepackaged:

A before closeup:
I have long admired that beautiful aged patina German Glitter Glass brings.
I wanted to give the same look and age instantly.


I used the same Benjamin Moore Mohawk Finishing Glaze in Raw Umber as I did in the last post.


Same technique, splattered and patted on for an instant tarnished effect.





I hot glued them to fishing line, three to a strand. I looped the fishing line around clear thumb tacks and hung them.
An easy project, but one that adds great whimsy.



Welcome! This is a view from our front door.

And a peek of tomorrow's post!!

That looks great! What a wonderful idea to spruce up Dollar Store finds! Your entryway looks great. Have a good day and thanks for sharing your ideas.
You really do some clever things. I'm inspired...it is too late for this year (I'm decorated) but I may look for some after Christmas things to work on for next year.

I love this idea. Bringing the snowflakes inside in Arkansas would be a great idea since we hardly ever get any real ones.
