When I first saw these Glittery Tree Picks on Allison's Blog, I knew I needed to make them. I have seen glitter Christmas tree picks in the store, but I never bought them. It wasn't until I found them on her blog that I realized how easy they were to make.
They are really easy to make. All you need are a few simple supplies and some time.
Styrofoam balls in two different sizes
A foam brush
Glitter in your choice colors
Fabric covered floral wire
Green floral wrap tape (I don't think that's what its really called - but its found in the floral section along with the floral wire)
Sick the Styrofoam ball on a tooth pick and cover it in Mod Podge. Then cover it in glitter.
Keep doing this until all the balls are covered.
Let them dry. Its easier if you sick them in something, like I stuck them in this Styrofoam tree thing.
In the meantime, get your floral wire and wrap ready. I used three pieces of wire and then wrapped the bottoms together with the wrap tape stuff.
When everything is dry you can start putting the Styrofoam balls onto the wire. I alternated them by color and size. Three balls on each wire worked perfectly.
Use the ball on the very top to protect the wire. (so don't push the wire all the way though the top ball)
As you can see, I have mine in a vase on my window - but Allison did use her in the tree. Both look really pretty. I plan on making more for our Christmas Tree!!
