Halloween is my favorite holiday. I love decorating the house for this time of year. We usually decorate the house around this time and keep the Halloween decor up until we decorate for Christmas.
I saw this paper mache hat at Michales and knew it would look really great glittered, and maybe sitting on top of the television. I recently picked up some Scor-Tape at my LSS. I had read that it adhered glitter very well. It did not disappoint and worked really well.
I used Making Memories and Martha Stewart ultrafine glitters. The Score-Tape is really sticky so I am sure coarser glitter and microbeads would work well also.

For the brim of the hat I used Martha Stewart glittering glue and her black glitter. It worked out well and looks really nice. I recently purchased some new acyclic paints from Michales by Martha Stewart. They are now selling a new line of acrylic paints by her which include different types: gloss, satin, pearl, metallic, and glitter. The bottle of the glitter paints states it can be used for metal, glass, wood, and fabric, also indoor/outdoor. I thought it would work for the paper mache hat but it did not. The glitter paint did not spread well on the paper mache. I wonder if the glitter paint does not work well on paper materials. Will have to try in the future on other paper materials and post my findings here.
This was a fun and quick project to complete. I have some more Halloween glitter projects in mind and hope to get them complete and posted here. Till next time...
