40 Before 20: DIY 5 Things (1/5)

May 29, 2012

On my 40 before 20 list one of my goals (#12) is to complete 5 DIY projects (because in all truthfulness, crafty is not a word to describe myself. Artistic, maybe. Crafty? Nope.) It makes me happy to say we're 1/5 of the way there!

Boredom plagued me and I wanted to do an easy DIY that would take me under 15 minutes to complete. So I redecorated my plain black pencil holder. I jazzed it up with some glitter and paint. It looks a little rough (I know), but it was in the process of drying when I snapped this. It needs a few more coats of paint and a touch up here and there on the glitter, but overall it was a fast and simple way to make something old new again.The possibilities are really endless with this type of project!

What I used:
1. Masking tape
2. Silver glitter
3. Mod podge
4. Acrylic paint
5. Paint brush

Happy days! I definitely want to try this again, but with more of a game plan and a bit more precision next time! I know I can do better and with these holders being ultra cheap, my mind is whirring with fun ideas!
