The countdown for Christmas is on and I am so excited to start decorating! I love everything Christmas – music, family, decorations, Christmas shows and movies, buying gifts – I could go on and on! My other favorite lately is glitter! I have made quite a few glitter projects lately and now I’m figuring out how to add glitter to Christmas! My youngest decided to add some glitter to Halloween when he dumped one of my silver glitter containers all over the lid of his pumpkin and my floor, table, and chair …(sigh!)… but I just can’t get too upset over his love of glitter either! So I thought I’d put together a list of glitter Christmas decor from around the web of easy ways to add that extra sparkle to your holiday.
