Tut Tuesday: Brown Bag Upcycle… With Glitter!
My all-time favorite gift to give neighbors and friends is homemade toffee. I’ve used the same recipe for years and I’m 100% positive that I’ve eaten more than I’ve gifted. Am I ashamed? Nope.
This year, I used brown lunch bags as my carrier. I embellished with some metallic markers and glittered clothespins. I only needed a few bags, but I made 30+ glittered clothespins. It’s like I was uncontrollable or something.
To make your own, follow the steps below.
You will need: clothespins, foam paintbrush, Mod Podge, assorted glitters, and brown lunch bags (not pictured)
Using the foam brush, paint a layer of Mod Podge onto the top of your clothespins.
Sprinkle with glitter.
In a variety of colors.
How many pictures of glittered objects can I take?
Paint an extra layer of Mod Podge over the tops to seal the glitter. Won’t rub off. Try it.
Grab a brown paper bag and put your treats inside. I put a few squares of wax paper in the bottom to help give it some (unseen) body.
Clasp with your clothespins and deliver to your neighbs. I love them. What do you think?
So fun. Let’s go give ‘em away, shall we?
