Add a Blast of Holiday Sparkle to Your Dollar Store Gifts! It's really simple and thrifty to kick your dollar store glass gifts up a notch with a little sparkle love! Check out this step by step picture tutorial.

Last week I wrote a post about making large handled glasses from the dollar store into personalized drinking glasses with simple painting techniques.  On the same visit to the dollar store I found some really adorable star shaped glass bowls.  They are cute as is, but I thought with a little glitter paint and some festive holiday additions these would make great holiday home decor as well as great gifts for teachers, friends or neighbors!

What You Need:

  • Glass Star Bowls from Dollar Tree
  • Glitter Blast Krylon Spray Paint that I bought with a 40% coupon at Michaels.
  • A trash bag, cardboard or painting tarp.\
  • A bag of delicious Christmas candy (your choice).
  • Clear Cellophane Gift Wrap (if you plan to give it away)
  • Christmas ribbon.

How You Do This:

Step 1: Lay out the trash bag in a well ventilated area.

Step 2: Clean your glass surface using a little rubbing alcohol and let dry.

Step 3: Turn your dish upside down on the black trash bag and spray as heavy or as light as you want with a can of Glitter Blast Paint by Krylon.

Step 4: Give the bottom a good coat and taper out the spray on the sides so the glitter sort of fades off as you go up the sides of the glass.

Step 5: Follow the drying instructions on the back of your paint can.

Step 6: Once dry, fill the glass with tasty Christmas candies, wrap in clear cellophane paper and add a little ribbon to jazz it up!  Now you have a usable, sparkly DIY gift for teachers, neighbors, yourself or friends!
