Create sparkling decor for an awesome teacher appreciation gift.

Creating sparking and dazzling decor is so fun and easy with Glitter-It. I love it for creating pieces all year round to celebrate occasions, holidays and TEACHERS!

Materials and Supplies Needed

  • Glitter-It! from Beacon
  • Glass Jar (TALL is better) with Lid
  • Yellow Chunky Mixed Glitter
  • Brown Card Stock
  • Scissors
  • Twine or Ribbon
  • Pink and Black Acrylic Paint
  • Paintbrush

Directions for Using Glitter-It!

Using Glitter-It is as easy as 1-2-3. I have found that it works the very best when being applied to clean, dry glass with chunky glitter!

  1. Unscrew cap of Glitter-It! and pour a small amount into vessel (gumball machine). Swirl around to coat the entire inner surface. Add more if needed. Drain Glitter-It! from vessel before adding glitter. Be sure that the entire inner surface is well coated with Glitter-It! before adding glitter.
  2. Immediately add about glitter. Rotate and shake vessel around until the inside of the vessel is completely covered with glitter. If necessary, add additional Glitter-It! and glitter until all areas are covered.
  3. Turn vessel upside down and shake away any excess glitter. Let dry!

Let’s go through the directions in more detail!

Directions for Glitter Jar Pencil Decor

I like to put down paper towels or parchment paper before starting to protect my surface from any splashes or spills. Of course when working with glitter – sometimes I throw caution to the wind and just go for it.

Step One

Take lid off of the jar and pour about a half bottle of Glitter It in then put the lid back on. Swirl it around until the surfaces have all been covered then take off lid and pour remaining back into the container of Glitter It.

Step Two

Pour glitter in the jar and shake it all around to cover the surfaces. I find that chunky glitter gives a more full effect over fine glitters.

Step Three

While the inside is drying, on the outside create the pencil eraser. To do this neatly, place a piece of tape around the jar leaving the bottom part to be the size you want the eraser.

Paint the bottom of the jar pink and when it is dry, remove the tape. If you want to take precautions of paint chipping, add a layer of decoupage.

Step Four

Create a cone from brown card stock and paint the tip black for the lead of the pencil. Add glitter to the edges if desired to give the pencil the look of just coming out of the sharpener. This can be done with any adhesive.

Step Five

Add a black line (can use paint or a paint marker) to add any desired details. This would be a good time to add a teacher’s name to personalize the gift.

Tie a bow if desired to add a special little extra touch.

Glue the cone to the top of the jar to complete the project. It is so cute!

  2. I would like to share my excitement about the recent changes in the field of crypto license in Czech Republic. This is really great news for all of us who are passionate about the world of digital assets. I have recently spent some time researching the new requirements for obtaining a crypto license in the Czech Republic, and I am thrilled with the way the country is approaching this issue. First of all, the process of obtaining a license has become more transparent and understandable. The authorities are actively cooperating with the community, holding open discussions and taking into account the opinions of market participants. The new regulations also strike a balance between safety and innovation. This is important in order to stimulate the development of the cryptosphere in the country, without forgetting the protection of investors’ interests and the stability of the financial system. As a representative of the community, I am proud of the way the Czech Republic is embracing the challenges of today’s financial world. It is a great example of how a country can actively innovate by supporting the development of the cryptocurrency space. What are your thoughts on this issue? I would be happy to hear your opinions and share your experiences! Together we are creating the future of cryptocurrency in the Czech Republic !
