Glittered Trophies

Good morning and happy Monday!  It was a good weekend for my family and hope it was for yours too.  It was nice and hot around here so we were able to enjoy our pool although the water is FREEZING!  The kids don't seem to mind the water temp.....but why does it seem like the older you get the "colder" the water is?!

In one of my favorite home decor stores near my parent's house, I saw these glittered trophies and thought they were so neat.  I found a few trophies at a garage sale a couple of weekends ago and thought I would try to glitter them up.  They started like this.
 I gave them a coat of white spray paint and then painted them with mod podge and sprinkled glitter all over.  Here's the result.  I think these would be cute displayed on a shelf in a girl's room....What do you think?
I don't know if you can really see the glitter.  I tried so many different ways to take the picture so that the glitter would show up.  This is the best one I was able to capture.
Have a great day and if you're reading...THANK YOU!
