I scored some SWWWWWEEEETTT over-sized Christmas balls last week! (Similar to these Christmas ornaments available here.) Well I thought to myself…. everything is cuter with glitter. Let me cute them balls up!

So I attempted to add polka dots to my big, round green ball!
First of all… it took a lot of glitter glue to get the look I wanted. Learn from my mistakes friends…. glitter glue runnnnnnnnnnnnns. See how it schlempted off to the side. Yes “schlempted”… it is a word.
So being rather resourceful, I decided to blow dry the dots right after I painted them on:
Then I made the HUUUUUGGGEEEEE mistake of walking away from the project. I came back and found this:
CRAP!!!!!!! Oh bless that girl’s heart. She’s lucky it didn’t break!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Look at this face as I told her to get down. And Ava you could fall. And Ava leave mom’s stuff alone. And Ava get the glitter out of your mouth.” Etc. Etc. Etc.
Finally, I got smart and put the giant Christmas ornament in a box…
Then got REALLLLLLLLLY smart and used a stencil brush and twisted it in a circle to make a painted bronze (I love to use Modern Masters Metallic Antique Bronze) dot so I didn’t have to use as much glitter glue over top of it!
And voila. It’s done. I only did one ball. One giant Christmas ornament. Seriously… it was way too much work for not enough bang on the cuteness scale.
But, in “cute husband news”….. we had an “Ugly Christmas Sweater Party” this weekend that he won!
Wow… those are badddddd sweaters.
Five days ’til Christmas y’all….
