make it: sparkle papier-mâché deer

Add a little shine and sparkle to a kraft papier-mâché deer. This is project is so easy and the results are stunning. I used peach tissue paper – but of course you could use any color you desired. I added a few holiday picks and a ribbon around the neck for a little embellishment.

Materials:
FolkArt Extreme Glitter™ – Gold 2771
Mod Podge – Gloss CS11201
Mod Podge – Glitter – Hologram Gold CS11275
Papier-mâché deer
Foam paintbrushes
Peach tissue paper
Scissor
Ribbon
Floral picks
Hot glue

Steps:
1. Cut the tissue paper into small random shaped squares. Apply the squares to the deer with Mod Podge. Topcoat with a layer of Mod Podge. Add additional layers of tissue. Allow for dry time between layers.

2. To-coat the deer with a layer of glitter Mod Podge. Allow to dry. Add 3 coats of Gold Extreme Glitter to the deer. Apply the gold randomly. Add more in some areas and less in others.

3. Hot glue a ribbon bow and floral pick to the neck of the deer.
