Golden Glitter Cuff

I am in love with this cuff. Surely you can see why! Let's call her Sparky.

Sparky can be splendid with a wide array of wardrobes. Let's take a peek at how to make Sparky all that she is…

Start with mixing a 1:1 ratio of glitter and matte mod podge into a disposable cup. So, if you use one tablespoon of glitter, use one tablespoon of mod podge. From there, you can add a little more of either glitter or mod podge to create the consistency you want. I bought the glitter, mod podge, and foam brush from Hobby Lobby. Use the foam brush to mix the glitter and mod podge together.

You will need a 1.25" wide brass cuff. You can buy them online from here.

Paint the glitter-mod podge mix onto the cuff. The picture above shows what the mix should look like on the cuff before it has dried. The white areas will dry clear. In my opinion, the more glitter the better. If you think it needs more glitter after the first coat, then add a second coat. Let it dry.

Mod podge can be sticky once dried. I don't know if it has to do with the material it is bonding to or how thick of a coat you use. But, this cuff did not turn out sticky. Maybe it had to do with using matte instead of glossy.

Isn't she stunning? What color are you going to make your cuff? I can't wait to see!
