Hey guys, welcome to another DIY Wednesday! Today we’re looking at adding some sparkle (yay!!) with some fun glitter projects.

Links Roundup:


  1. This DIY sparkly lantern from Two Delighted is perfect for parties and weddings- especially for those held over the Christmas holidays or for New Year’s events. Oh Happy Day also has a great tutorial for this.
  2. I have to admit a certain giddy delight with these adorable glitters hearts used as a cake topper from Sugar & Cloth. Another lovely way to use this idea- add a name tag to each and place them on your reception tables as alternative place cards, better yet, if you’re having cupcake favors, why not plant a heart in each cupcake with your guest’s name attached?
  3. You can also use glitter to create gorgeous table numbers using this DIY from Atelier Joya.


  1.  These DIY glitter vases from The Sweetest Occasion would make gorgeous centerpieces. 
  2. I love the idea of using the glittery clothespins on Creature Comforts to hold escort cards in a hanging display. You can also use them to hold your table numbers.
  3. Are you having a signature cocktail at your wedding? Glitter dot swizzle sticks (another fab DIY at The Sweetest Occasion) would be fun way to spice up the presentation.


  1.  If you decide to DIY your invitations, adding some sparkle to your envelope liners (Funkytime Magazine) could be a fun additional project. 
  2. DIY glitter votives on 100 Layer Cake are presented with various designs to try out. The Glitter Guide also has a neat tutorial demonstrating how you can create a pretty tablescape  by embellishing these and other objects.
  3. Sweet little bags filled with confetti for your guests to shower you with are given a glam makeover! Here’s the DIY via Oh Lovely Day.
  4. The Elli Blog has a lovely tutorial on creating this cute glittery Mr. & Mrs. Chair banner.
  5. I adore these gold and glitter dipped feathers on Ryan+Michelle+Ellie – I would love to see them used at a vintage glam wedding!


  1.  O.k. so totally unrelated to weddings, I know, but adding glitter to your iPhone case is just so nifty- I love it!! On I Am Style-ish, blogger Tiffany does this and more.
  2. Glittered ombre seashells are beach-wedding perfect! The soft, romantic palette is also quite lovely. Check out Martha Stewart for the DIY.


  1. These DIY Glitter Shoes from GI 365 are a great, inexpensive way to pep up your wedding heels. You could also have fun experimenting with a design on the soles of your shoes- creating hearts or an ‘I Do’ message or what about using that canvas to add your ‘something blue’?

Happy Crafting!
