I know know why glitter is only limited for the holidays at the school I work at. Not only is it nearly impossible to clean up from floors, but it sheds endlessly from your project until all you are left with are sparse remnants. I decided to make block glitter letters for my library, but I had no idea I had just signed up for an hour long clean up session where I only manged to clean up 25% of the mess. I really need to write a sincere Thank You letter to the cleaning and maintenance staff. But overall, my windows came out pretty decently. Now I just need to get to the pile of book waiting to be shelved, but decorating is so much more fun.
These are the puff balls that I should have just made but instead I went to Michaels and bought them from the Martha Stewart Collection section--damn her packaging, it gets me every time. thankfully Michaels always offers coupons, so the price wasn't that bad. It was originally supposed to be strung horizontally, but I cut them up and hung them this way to really fill the window space.
My library is a part-time music room, so to incorporate the themes I printed out some music notes and added 3D books as well, that I made my printing out the same thing twice. I have to thank Microsoft clip art for that one!
And here it is all together! I love how it looks on the backdrop of the city. I know the kids can't read, but I hope they will appreciate my battle with glitter to give them this sparkly look.
