Step 4: Lay newspaper or a cookie sheet on your worktable and sprinkle the glitter onto your branch so the excess glitter falls onto the cookie sheet and not on your work surface. This way you can re-use it.

Step 7:  Use a paint brush to apply white glue along branch joints or where snow and ice would build up.  Press the clear Colorfill decorative accents into the glue.  Collect the excess that falls onto the newspaper or cookie sheet to re-use. (You can also use Epsom salts to do this – they will give the branches a whiter look.) Let dry.

  1. What a gorgeous addition to your room! Of course the Christmas sparkle makes it so pretty, but I can imagine that even during the rest of the year, that mirror will be just stunning! I’d spend $12.90 several times over to get that look!

  2. Can’t believe you got that awesome mirror for so cheap! Love how it turned out!! I would definitely like to try out the new Kilz primer on an old desk that I got from my MiL. It’s a lovely desk with cute, ornate features, but too dark for what I need it for! Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. I love Kilz! I am about to repaint my master bath cabinets and would love to try this new Kilz- especially if it doesn’t have a strong smell!
