If glitter only comes out of hiding for rainy day activities at your house, it’s time to think of the craft-time staple in a new light. Want to add some elegance to your living room? Just grab some sparkles! Looking to make laundry duty a little more exciting? Glitter looks great on clothespins.

There’s a lot of glitter goodness out there, so we’ve rounded up our favorite projects that will add a little glimmer to your home:

1. Mason Jar

3. Hangers

Take boring ol’ wooden hangers and give them an upgrade with a little Mod Podge and glitter. We like this step-by-step from A Bubbly Life, because Laurel includes a great tip on how to avoid making a glitter mess.

4. Clothespins

Clothespins are like baby-hangers – they can also use a little dazzle! Check out Brunch at Saks to learn how.

14. Feathers 

We love this twist on typical décor from You Are My Fave, because it takes ordinary feathers and gives them the Midas touch. Display your gold-dipped feathers into a mobile or string them as a garland across your mantle.
