Glitter Reindeer Wall Art

Hey, everyone!  Hope you're all having a great day.
Today I'm sharing with a really easy way to create some Christmas wall art.  

As I'm changing up my gallery wall in my living room to a more Christmas-y collection, I made a simple printable into a more festive piece of art.  And since I'm such a fan of reindeer at Christmas, here's what I did.

First off, print off this awesome free reindeer printable from Simply Crafts.
Then get some gold glitter, a thin paintbrush and mod podge.

Add small amounts of mod podge onto your brush at a time.

Then outline your reindeer with the mod podge.  Paint it on a small section at a time to prevent the glue from drying too quickly.

Then, holding it over a plastic container (to collect your excess), sprinkle on your glitter and tap off the excess.

Continue on until you've finished the outline of your reindeer.

Let your artwork dry for about an hour (or less), then use a dry brush to rid the paper of any glitter that's hanging around.

Find a cute frame and put your new art inside.

Fabulous!  I love me some glittah.. especially for the Christmas season.

Curious as to what other goodies hanging in my gallery?  Come back on Thursday for the whole reveal!

Thanks for stopping by!
