I don’t know about you, but warmer weather always makes me want to dress up a bit more. Even with a casual summer maxi dress, it’s fun to add necklaces or bracelets to the outfit mix. And I’m sure it’s no surprise but I just did an EASY jewelry DIY to share! Today I am really excited to share my DIY Glitter Watch. It’s a fun way to add a little sparkle into your everyday look, too.
First, cover the band of your watch with a generous layer of decoupage.
Next, set your watch on a plate and cover it in glitter. The plate helps corral and collect fly-away glitter and no matter how hard you try, there will be lots of fly away glitter!
After your first coat of glitter has dried, shake off all excess. Then, combine the gold and copper glitters along with a large portion of decoupage in a cup. I used a plastic fork to mix them all together. Brush this thick mixture over all areas of watch band and allow to dry, again.
After that layer has dried, go back over any remaining bare spots with the glitter mixture for touchups.
Apply one final coat of decoupage over all the glitter on entire band and allow for 24 hours of dry time before use.
Don’t be alarmed at the white coloring the decoupage gives the watch band. It dries clear!
