I got the Martha Stewart glitter set for Christmas and have been wanting to glitter something ever since! I bought an elk figurine on clearance and thought it would look cool in white glitter for Christmas but haven't done it yet. So...we decided to glitter some cheap plastic toys laying around the house. I say "we" because my girls glittered these horses (with the help of mommy)! I spray painted the large one gold before we glittered it.
I recommend spray painting it first so if it chips it won't be that noticeable. Then Mod Podge and glitter. Let dry. You could/should do a coat of clear spray paint over the glitter to help it from spreading glitter everywhere! I'll do that to my elk.
I was hoping it would look like a beetle. Kinda cool I think.
