If you’re reading this post then YAY! You’re considering making glitter crafts! Glitter can often get a bad reputation for being super messy – because yes – it can be! But here are two simple ways to make things easier:
- Glitter shaker – make sure your glitter can’t just be poured out. We love these glitter shakers which you can buy from Walmart!
