Glittered Interchangeable Brooches AND pumpkins, plus a linky and prizes!!

  I had the opportunity to try out Krylon’s new Glitter Blast Spray Paint last week. I was SO excited — a product that combines two of my favorite things: spray paint AND glitter. Wow! But I secretly had my doubts about how this product could work. Wouldn’t the glitter clog up the nozzle? Plus, all the glitter paint I have tried in the past ended up getting dulled down when put in a liquid form. I was excited to see how it Krylon’s Glitter Blast worked.

I decided to try to make a Fashion Accessory project with this new Glitter Spray Paint. I love a good challenge. So I came up with a glittery brooch that is interchangeable. 
 
It can be worn as a brooch with a pin on the back, but I also made a pass-through on the back so a belt can be looped through and it can be worn on a belt. And this pass-through also makes it work as an embellishment on a headband.

 

Plus, you can pin it on a pillow and it’s jewelry for your home. LOL!

And because I couldn’t resist glittering everything in site, I sprayed a few Dollar Store Pumpkins to display in my beadboard-backed cabinet. I love them displayed on my cake plates!!

Here’s what I did to make these Glittered Interchangeable Brooches:

  1. Spray the Dollar Tree flowers with Krylon’s Glitter Blast paint. Let dry. 
  2. Meanwhile, make the fabric flowers. 
  3. Then hot glue fabric flowers and spray painted flowers on to felt. 
  4. Cut around the flowers. 
  5. Then add a rectangular strip, gluing on two, opposite sides — this creates the pass-through for belts or headbands. 
  6. Hot glue a pin to the back so you can wear it as a brooch.

And, I couldn’t stop at one. Here are a few other ones I made…

And I Glitter Blasted some upholstery tacks, a button cover and a head band:

My Sparkly Pumpkins make me smile —

The best part about this product?? The glitter doesn’t rub off!!! I put the pumpkins between my legs to tie the ribbon on and there was no glitter left over on my pants. Yay!!!

  1. Would love to see a tutorial on the different fabric flowers you create.

  2. I loved the look of this glitter…so I ran out to Michael’s and bought the Bronze and one of those craft Pumpkins they have. Then of course I threw it in my craft room and didn’t look at it for 3 weeks. When I finally got to spray the pumpkin, 1/2 way through the nozzle started to malfunction and started spritzing everywhere….I couldn’t get it to stop and had to leave it outside until it stopped, which was when empty..arghhh…anyway I am sure it was a fluke, I am going to throw myself on the mercy of the Michael’s employees and hope they will replace it….It looked great, as far as I got…thanks for posting…
