Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Rally Up Your Supplies

For this project you will need :

-Mod Podge $1 ( I purchased mine from Target in their Dollar Spot )

- Foam Brushes $1 Also from Target Dollar Spot

-Paint .59 at Walmart ( this isn't necessary but it's an option for touch ups)

-Mini Wax Poly Finish $8.00 Walmart

Glitter - $2.99 Hobby Lobby

Step 2: Wipe It Down

I like to wipe down my furniture pieces with a good cleaner and then a wet rag. It's good to start projects like this with a clean slate.

Step 3: Remove Hardware

I always seem to forget this part. Remove hardware, It just makes it SO much easier to work with your furniture piece.

Step 4: Add ModPodge

Simply add your Mod Podge to where you want to add the glitter. I decided to add it to the lighter pink sections of this dresser. Brush on a light coat of glue and make sure not to leave any thick globs behind

Step 5: Add GLITTER

This is my favorite part...Adding glitter. Just add glitter over the top of where you brushed on the glue. Wait for about 10 minutes until its fully dry.

Step 6: Remove Glitter

Time to remove the glitter. Now i used a plate so i can try to conserve glitter but you can most certainly wipe it off on to the ground...if your outside that is.

Step 7: Now Repeat Steps 4,5,6

Repeat step 4,5,6 two times.

TIP: when applying glitter be sure to add a generous coat of glitter.

Step 8: Seal in Your Glitter

Time for the last step. Seal in your glitter with this Miniwax Polycrylic sealant. Simply brush on a thin coat over the glittered areas. Let dry for 30 minutes then apply the second coat if needed.

Step 9: Enjoy

Now step back and take a look what you did!
