'Tis the season...But not really!

Yeah, I know I'm a bit early since we haven't even had Thanksgiving yet buuuuuut....the awesome Sonja, Pintester extraordinaire is doing another "Pintester Movement" that I can ABSOLUTELY get behind. The theme of this movement is Christmas (Christmas ornaments to be exact) and anyone that really knows me can tell you that I'm obsessed with Christmas and all my decorations (a whole 3 giant boxes full, not including the 5 foot tall tree)! So I immediately hopped onto Pinterest and opened my everything Christmas board and perused all my decorations to be made in the future. 

First I needed to find a kick-ass decoration to add to the very first tree of Jodee from the Cheeseblarg (follow her!) who really needs her tree not to look like a "shitty Charlie Brown tree". 
Step number 1: Look at her ornament board and try not to want to make EVERYTHING! 
Step number 2: Decide. This is actually harder than it sounds! 

What I really wanted to make were these adorable My Little Pony ornaments but there isn't a tutorial on how to make them and I don't think I'd be any good at guessing about all those little pieces. 

So instead I picked one that I actually could do and one that Sophia (my 3 year old) would go bananas for! 
Dinosaurs and glitter! What's not to love!?

First, I got everything together that I would need. 

Then I screwed in the eye hooks which ended up being really easy, they just screw right in!

The last step was to go glitter crazy! Which I did....

Two days later, a sealing layer of Mod Podge, and a ton of glitter layers, I was done! And it was so much fun to do! 

By the end of it I was the glitter fairy! Where I went, glitter would just fall behind me like fairy dust. But it was so worth it! 
Just look at them! 

Jodee you have one of these beauties heading your way! Sorry I couldn't find a T-rex though. I really wanted one for myself as well! 
As an added bonus and to have something cheese related I also wanted to make this bit of cheesy cuteness

But then I realized I have no clue how to felt things and learning would take forever and frankly, ain't nobody got time for that! 
And I liked it!

So Merry Christmas in November and leave a comment, they excite me!
