Deer Under Glass

deer_candy_spiegel5This is one of those projects that just evolved … I had no intentions of making it, but somehow, it just sort of happened.

I started with new plastic deer from Tim Holtz. I painted each one with a healthy layer of Art Glitter Designer Dries Clear Adhesive and then coated them in a variety of glitters … this one a microfine glitter from Art Glitter.

For the bottom, I filled an old crystal salt shaker that was long missing its top with glitter and snow and glued it to the bottom.

And added a bit of ribbon as a final touch.

It adds a beautifully vintage charm … maybe next year we will have a pink Christmas?
