Over the past couple of weeks I have been working on some handmade Christmas decorations to fit in with my Winter Wonderland colour palette and theme. Next up is the pink glittery deer ornament to hang on my Christmas tree. I want to use lots of my Christmas tree decorations from last year but I also want to inject some pink colour into my decorations, so I painted and glittered some inexpensive craft deer ornaments pink.

Pink glittery deer ornament, How-to step by step
Start by carefully painting the deer in pink paint using a small paint brush, ensuring to get into all the fret work, and leave to dry. Brush PVA glue onto painted deer and immediately sprinkle with pink glitter before the glue starts to dry. Tap string holding deer lightly to remove excess glitter and hang up to dry. Once dry, remove silver string and replace with pink and white bakers twine, securing the ends with a knot.
I hold my deer over a clean small plastic pot when sprinkling with glitter to catch any excess glitter so it can be reused.
Here are my hand painted glittered and marbled snowflakes from last year:
