50 for 2011: #15. decoupage boring spindles

I made these spindles years ago from wooden wheels from the craft store and dowel rods cut to size and made pointy at one end with a pencil sharpener.

But after getting a gorgeous new spindle for Christmas, I thought I need all my tools to be prettier... so, what to do... but use ModPodge!

glittery spindle
ooh, shiny!

little one coated with glue and glitter, and then more glue to keep the glitter from getting everywhere.  It also has a little rhinestone star, but I took the picture from a bad angle and you can't really tell.

The stamps came from a friend of mine, intended for another project I haven't done yet...

Of course, now there is glitter everywhere.... I'd forgotten.  I've not used glitter since... I dunno, junior high?
