Glittery DIYs for Your Next Party

I'm of the mindset that a bit of glitter and shine improves almost anything. If you're one to agree, here are five festive DIY projects that will add a little shimmer to your next shindig.

  1. Susan of 100 Layer cake hosted a Bastille Day birthday party for her twins that included a golden paper garland (we'd hang it in a photo booth).
  2. Differently-sized (and painted) styrofoam balls make a strand of shimmery orbs. DIY from A Subtle Revelry.
  3. A kid craft supply gets a grown-up makeover with these pipe cleaner cake toppers from Say Yes to Hoboken.
  4. Say what's on your mind: a glitter message banner can work for any occasion. DIY from Creature Comforts
  5. Wispy coffee filter flowers (spotted on the Art Glitter Blog) take a glitter dip, and make for a chic arrangement.
