the golden rule


Around here at Oxford Hall, the golden rule seems to be that there is not much that won’t be improved with the addition of gold glitter. Be it remnants of a kindergarten fascination with the shiny stuff or a Pinterest-driven obsession to craft, we’ll call it like we see it – Viv&Ingrid at Oxford Hall and gold glitter are sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G. First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes glitter babies in sparkly baby carriages.

And with that, our latest glittered addition the store! With all of our new additions from Julie Hewett {more on that later}, we’ve become quite the collector of disposable lipsticks brushes, q-tips and makeup sponges. After all, we want everyone to have as much fun playing with the makeup as we do. But playing inevitably leads to those same brushes, q-tips and sponges being covered in all manner of reds, pinks, corals and our customers in need of a trash can. And, of course, not just any old trash can would do. A a glittered mason-jar-turned-trash-can, however, would do just perfectly. And a little glitter glue, a half a bottle of extra fine gold glitter and ten minutes later, that was that.


The finished product – although we are thinking a trip to the craft store for some shellac in aerosol form is necessary to prevent shedding. You could also try glittering the inside of the jar a la A Beautiful Mess {the inspiration for this project}.

The usual suspects – our favorite extra fine glitter and Martha Stewart brand glittering glue. FYI – no different than normal kraft glue, but it does come with a handy, dandy little brush that is connected to the cap. The object that you would have adhered yourself to ten minutes in the future will thank you.

Warning – in addition to glitter babies and sparkly baby carriages, the use of extra fine glitter may also lead to glitter hands.
