Project #5

I didn't get home until 9:00 tonight.
Adam and I are both feeling sick.
Date night got cancelled.
Adam leaves tomorrow for 7 days and still hasn't packed.
We have soooooo much laundry to do.
Needless to say, a crafty project was the last thing on my mind tonight.
I thought about just skipping it or even posting a project I had done before.
Then I realized that I would only be cheating myself and that is NOT how I roll.
Thus...project number five was created

I have had this stash of vintage teeny tiny plastic deer for awhile and was never sure what to do with them.  They are too cute, and I wanted to find the perfect project for them.

I had seen this post awhile back and for some reason it popped into my head tonight and it was perfect!
I busted out my materials...

and got busy painting ( I didn't have any glue so I used my sparkly gold paint for adhesive) and dipped my little deer in the glitter!

That last photo is a reference photo, so that you can see how cute and tiny these deer really are!!

Oh my gosh I love them so much!!

I think I'm either going to make:
1. cute festive hair pins
2. a little garland of these
3.  use them on my gift tags
4.  or all of the above.
I painted a ton so I am sure I can use them for more than one thing.
Also I want it noted, for future reference, doing this little project made me feel a lot better.  Plus, what else is there to do while the laundry is cycling through?

Good night friends.
