4 Super Easy (And Sophisticated!) Home DIY Projects
“DIY” doesn’t have to stand for difficult, involved, yikes! These fun redos from four top bloggers are low-effort and high-impact. Here’s all the stuff, steps, and secrets you need.
"Easy as a grade-school craft: Coat with adhesive; sprinkle with glitter. What I love most about a sparkly pendant is that you get a wow moment every time you flip on the light." — DIY blogger Marisa Mangum, Marissa Makes
- pendant shade
- foam brush
- Mod Podge
- glitter in any color, enough for two coats (we used one 16-ounce container for this 25-inch-diameter shade)
Lay out newspaper to cover your work surface. Brush a layer of Mod Podge onto one-third of the pendant shade’s interior, top to bottom, all the way to the wire-rimmed edges.
Sprinkle on a thick layer of glitter. Shake off the excess. Repeat the Mod Podge–and-glitter process on the remainder of the shade, one-third at a time. Let dry for about 1 hour.
Apply a second coat of Mod Podge, followed by a second layer of glitter (again, section by section). Shake off the excess. Let dry. Hang and light up!
