5 Things to Do WIth Glitter Wrapping Paper

Happy Christmas Eve, eve. If you're like me you are putting the finishing touches on the Christmas wrapping and preparing for company. After wrapping all your presents, if you happen to have some left  over wrapping paper, don't throw it out. I am going to share with you what I did with my left over glitter paper from last year. Who am I kidding I say left over but glitter paper is hard as crap to get tape to stick to. So it sucks for actually wrapping  presents,  but it is so good for decorating with. So I bought it because it was pretty and glittery and I am like a moth to flame with anything glitter.
When I re decorated my bathroom this year I knew I wanted something glittery, because I always want something glittery. I tried gluing glitter on things and that was a mess and the glitter really didn't stick well. That's when it hit me to try the wrapping paper I had stuck in a closet.  You can read about the bathroom makeover here.

Wall Art I printed the words out on regular printer paper and then traced them onto the glitter and then cut them out. Its attached to a canvas using spray adhesive. I just painted the canvas black. This has been on the wall for almost a year and is still holding tight.

 
Liner in a Hutch or Book Shelf: This is what my hutch looked like. It was already painted black, but after a catastrophe when I attempted to paint it red, I gave up. All I had in the house was chalk board paint. That turned out well because the girls love writing on it. But I still hated the inside. With the help of a little glitter wrapping paper it was transformed into a hot chocolate bar.

 Here is the after Its so cute I'm thinking about leaving it up even after Christmas.


Cup Holder: I use it to hold makeup brushes but you could also use it to hold pens. I took a plastic cup and rolled the paper around it. Like I was wrapping a cylinder. I used spray adhesive. I cut the extras off the top. We use this every day and it still looks great. 
 Decorating a Pumpkin: Silver is the color of the awareness ribbon for Dyslexia. So this when we decorated pumpkins. We painted a pumpkin black using craft paint and the stem is spray painted. (Tip do that before you paint the pumpkin) I traced the awareness ribbon onto the paper and cut it out. Its attached with spray adhesive. I swear I couldn't live without that stuff.
 
Outlet Cover After I glitterfied my bathroom I couldn't just leave my outlet face plates plain white. I laid the cover on the paper and traced the holes. Cut it all out and you guessed it attached it using spray adhesive. As with everything else it has held up great and we use this switch a million times a day.
If you don't have glitter wrapping paper I suggest stocking up the day after Christmas when everything goes on sale. I know I will be grabbing all the color varieties. You just never know what craft opportunities will appear.
