Glitter Hooks

When my jewelry collection of statement and long strand necklaces expanded to more than I could easily store, I sought out new ways to store the necklaces. 3M hooks were the perfect answer. They required no holes in the wall and required no real handiwork. Over time though I got bored with the plain white hooks, so I looked to see what other designs 3M offered. Unfortunately, none fit my style needs. Rather than give up, I decided to create my own hooks with glitter and glue. The final result required very little effort, but made a huge difference to my d├ęcor.

What you’ll need:
-3M Hooks
-Glue (I used Mod Podge)
-Glitter
-Paint Brush
-Bowl for MixingDSC_0207
1. Mix the glue and glitter together. I used a ratio of 2:1 glue to glitter.

2. Paint the glue/glitter mixture onto the 3M hooks. Allow a couple minutes between coats of the mixture for the hooks to dry some. I did 5 coats to ensure the hooks were completely covered with glitter. Once done, wait at least an hour before hanging.

  2. Have you had any issues with the glitter coming off or scratches in the finished product? I'm thinking about this for my boutique but I can't have glitter all over and I don't want them to scratch and look terrible. Thanks!

    1. Hi Liz!

      I haven't had any issues with the glitter coming off or scratching when using them to hang jewelry. If you are worried though, I would suggest adding an extra coat of just the mod podge once they dry with the glitter. You could also try spraying them with a type of clear spray.
