What You’ll Need to Make These Glitter Crafts

Not sure what to stock up on before tackling one of the glitter crafts below? No worries! We have you covered!

While all of the crafts require different supplies, there are common elements in most of them. Here are the things you might want to have on hand:

  • glitter in a variety of colors and designs
  • school glue – it works better than glue sticks when working with glitter
  • construction paper
  • kid-friendly scissors
  • tape
  • cardboard tubes (think toilet paper or paper towel tubes)

Be sure to read the directions and supply lists for each craft that you decided to make before you tackle it. There’s nothing worse than starting a craft – especially with children – and then discovering you are missing key supplies to complete it!

How to Contain Glitter While Doing Glitter Crafts

Let’s face it, glitter is going to get everywhere – no matter how careful you are! Here are a few things you can do to mitigate the spread of this sparkly crafting supply though:

  • Place your craft in a pie tin or on a baking tray to assemble it. This helps keep the glitter contained as much as possible. It’s a losing battle, but at least it will make you feel like you’re trying. 😉
  • Have a pack of wet wipes out and available. Wet wipes are amazing at helping to get the glitter off of little hands…and dining room tables…and the cat. You can pick up a pack at any Dollar Store if your kids have outgrown them.
  • Put a plastic tablecloth down on the floor and on the table where you’re crafting. Again, this is a futile effort to contain the glitter but it may make your dining room a tad bit less sparkly after the craft has been completed.

Above all, just have patience and know that there really will be glitter in places you didn’t intend after the craft is done. That’s okay. Just remind yourself that you’re making memories and being messy is part of that!
