If you’re tired of boring traditional table décor, use a decoupage medium and glitter to create sparkly masterpieces for your home or next event. All that glitters can be gold, or silver or blue. Bring nature indoors by using real tree branches and give them a shiny makeover. Place them in a painted pot or a vintage glass vase filled with pebbles or beads. Your shimmery stems won’t blend into the background like other centerpieces, and they make great conversation starters for guests.
1 Gather three to six tree branches from outside, no longer than three feet in length. Remove any dirt by running each branch under warm water and lay out to dry.
2 Cover each branch with a generous layer of decoupage medium using the paintbrush. Sprinkle the glitter on top of the decoupage medium and allow one hour to dry. Using the spray adhesive, apply one coat to seal the glitter. Allow to fully dry for 24 hours.
3 Fill a vase halfway with pebbles or glass marbles. Arrange the finished branches in the vase.
