I am always on the look out for ways of making my own supplies for crafting. It saves money and making the supplies is a craft of it's own!
It's a win/win :)
I'm going to show you how to make your own Glitter!
I know...exciting right????
The Two Ingredients Are:
Does it get any easier???
No...No it does not :)
Let's get started shall we...
First Pre Heat your oven to 350 degrees
Line a cookie sheet with foil
I added one big piece of foil to cover the whole cookie sheet and then two big squares on top..one square for each glitter color so I could do two at a time and pick them up off the cookie sheet easily.
I added 1 Tablespoon of Table Salt to a bowl and 3 drops of Blue Food Coloring.
The Food Coloring will clump up but just keep breaking it up and stirring until it's all incorporated.
It took 5 drops of Red Food Coloring to make the Red.
I started out with the 3 drops and then added a drop at a time as needed.
Next I spread out the Salt on one of my squares of Foil...and then added the other color on the other square.
Baked it in the oven for 10 minutes
I let it cool and then I picked up a square carefully...we don't want to spill glitter everywhere LOL..
And I sifted it thru a fine sifter..totally not necessary but I wanted any clumps out of my glitter.
Here is the finished product all shiny and finely sifted.
I LOVE THIS!
Break out the glue and started making stuff!
This is so cheap to make, it's non toxic, easy for kids to help make and fun for all ages!
