Bedazzled Keys

I’ve always had a thing for large attention grabbing key rings to add a bit of beauty to your keys. Having stylish keys has always been a bit of a must for me and I always try to have something gorgeous on the ring to add that bit of glamour. So when I came across a way to bedazzle my keys I had to give it a go. The verdict: It was fun, easy and really gave the keys a gorgeous touch.  Everything needs a bit of glitter if you ask me.

To do it yourself you will need – the key(s) you want to bedazzle and the nail polish, glitter and top coat colour of your choice.

How to

  1. clean off the key with warm water;
  2. choose where you want to paint (usually the top bubbly end) and put a piece of tape across (to get a nice straight line) I skipped this step, but if you would like a straight edge I recommend you tape it;
  3. choose your colour and paint one coat on one side of the key. Wait for it to dry (best to wait about an hour between each coat);
  4. repeat step three until you get the desired colour;
  5. leave to set (at least an hour);
  6. apply glitter polish to the area. repeat as needed. Leave to set for about 2 hours;
  7. apply the top coat and allow to dry overnight;
  8. repeat steps 2 to 7; and
  9. remove tape.

Glitz Vase

Let me just say I am obsessed with glitter and sequins. I love how their sparkle can liven up almost anything and give it a new look. Recently I went to a fashion boutique in Paddington which featured a gorgeous vase that incorporated pretty bright flowers (fresh or fake) in a water bottle vase with a sparkle of sequins. It’s easy to do and it’s a real attention grabbing piece to add to any area of your home.

To do it yourself you will need : water bottle vase – under $5 at Ikea, a packet of sequins – available at most discount and craft stores less than $3 and a bunch of flowers – fresh or fake.

  1. Add the packet of sequins to the vase and fill the vase with water – close the lid and shake;
  2. Slowly empty the water holding your finger partly over the vase opening to ensure the sequins do not come away with the water;
  3. Once the water is emptied, close the lid and shake again to spread the sequins around;
  4. Finally, add your flowers and style as needed.
