Glitter Keys Tutorial
with Amanda & Brittany

Glitter Key Inspiration from My Oh My and Glitter Everything Inspiration from I Am Style-ish

Step 1:  Gather and clean your keys.  We wiped ours down with nail polish remover, but rubbing alcohol or good ol' soap and water should work, too.  Make sure they are completely dry before moving onto step 2.

Step 2:  Brush glue onto one side of the key.  We used Elmer's school glue and old paintbrushes.  {On one of the keys we ended up having to wipe off the glue and use clear nail polish for this step because the glue wasn't sticking to the smooth surface of the key.}

Step 3:  Sprinkle on the glitter.  Shake, shake, shake.  Shake, shake, shake.  Shake your glitter!  {Hint:  Lighter color glitters don't show mistakes and missed areas quite as much as the darker color glitters do.}

Step 4:  Let it dry.

Step 5:  Turn the key over and repeat steps 2-4.  You may need a second coat of glue and glitter on each side.  If so, repeat steps 2-5.  Then, let it dry!

Step 6:  After the glue is completely dry, shake off the excess glitter.  Brush on 1 to 2 coats of clear polish per side.  Do one side at a time and let the polish completely dry between coats.

Voila!  Easy to identify glitter keys!
