Bling! Create a Glitter Station

Bling! Easy Glitter Storage

Glitter… It’s one of those craft supplies that can bring so much pleasure and create such a mess all at the same time.

My daughters happen to love using it, so I set out to find a way to make it easy to access and put away.

I had an aha! moment when I saw this post about using salt and pepper shakers for glitter storage and have kept it in the back of my mind (for what seems like years).

So when I decided to commit to solving the glitter dilemma in our home I found these spice jars and these cute cubbies, and viola! We have been happily using glitter ever since…

These are the types of investments that I feel good about making. Creating “areas” like this glitter station nurtures ongoing creativity and always outlasts any toy I could purchase.

Before I had put this together, the glitter stayed hidden among many of our other craft supplies. Yet, when I displayed the glitter in an inviting manner, it was instantly put to good use. I knew, when I heard the squeals of delight (even from my 9 and 11 year olds) while they were using the glitter, that it was a good move.

Isn’t that what we want… to inspire creativity and nurture the maker that lies within us all?

Our glitter station came in handy when we decided to make our own star for the top of our tree this year.

I can attest to the easy access and easy put away part. Mess free… I suppose that is what dust busters are for!
