How To: Make A Glitter House

Posted on 13 December 2018

Is there anything cuter than a glitter house? No. No, there isn't... except maybe a whole village of glitter houses surrounded by bottle brush trees and miniature deer! Eep! 

We are crazy about glitter houses around here at Brooklyn Craft Company, and this holiday season we are so excited to stock all the supplies you need to make your own holiday glitter village! They're super easy to make and the perfect project for a holiday crafternoon or just a little festive DIY fun. Want to learn how to make one? Let's get glittery!


What You Need

  • paper maché house
  • acrylic paint in at least two colors (different colors for the house sides + roof)
  • fine glitter
  • flaky glitter
  •  paint brush

 *All supplies available in our Brooklyn store


Step 1

Apply a base coat of paint to the house, using a different color for the house sides and roof.


Base coat, done! Allow to dry.


Step 2

Apply the second coat of paint to the house sides, and while the paint is still very wet, sprinkle with fine glitter. Work in small sections as you do this part so the paint doesn't begin to dry before you add the glitter. 


Step 3

Apply the second coat of paint to the roof, and while still wet, add the flaky glitter. Work in small sections as you did before. 


And that's it, you're done! Display your houses with a battery-operated candle inside, surrounded by bottle brush trees and other miniatures. Then just sit back in bask in those warm, glittery holiday feels.


If you make this project, we'd love to see how it turns out! Share your pics and tag us @brooklyncraftcompany and #brooklyncraftcompany so we can check out your projects!
