Her party is four months away, so I know that sounds a bit crazy, but I thrift and DIY so much, that it is best to formulate a plan and a list.
Without giving away too much detail about the party (it is under wraps for a bit ;) The glitter hangers will be used for various art and pictures of Kalia throughout the party.
As much as I love glitter, I hate the constant shedding of glitter, so make sure to follow all directions to avoid the hangers shedding glitter everywhere.
These wooden hangers are easy to find at any thrift store, I get 2-3 for 50 cents.
Spray Paint (optional)
Spray Adhesive (not shown in picture)
* I wanted some of the hangers glittered gold, so my first step was to spray paint the silver portion of the hanger. I left the pink glittered hanger silver.
1) Using the paint brush, brush mod podge onto wooden portion of the hanger. (Be sure to wash the paint brush soon after using or you will glue all the hairs together!)
2) Do the glitter shake! Shake glitter onto hanger, then shake off excess glitter.

3) Step 3 is VERY important! (mostly for my husband) It is the best way to avoid getting glitter everywhere that I have found!
Take your spray adhesive and do a light spray on the glitter portions of the hanger. The spray adhesive will remain sticky for a few hours but then it is set! Glitter will not get everywhere- rejoice!
Please note, it does dull the sparkle a bit, but not as much as my husband yelling at me for getting pink glitter on a work suit... for the fifth time...
So while they wait for Kalia's party, they make very beautiful decor for Miss Kalia's room.
Check out here, where I used them to hold some small prints!
