  1. Waooo me quede en shock… espectaculares ideas… Felicidades! Excelente trabajo. Bendiciones desde Mexico.

    Incredible!!! I stayed in shock… spectacular ideas… Congratulations! Excellent work. Blessings from Mexico.

  2. Such a cool DIY!
    Do you find that the glitter rubs off the case quite easily, or does the Mod Podge really keep it in place? Thanks!

  3. I love this! But I have an old earing case that looks like a real clutch that is perfect for this project. However, its not plastic its like a suede finish and I was wondering if the mod podge would still work for this? Any suggestions?..
    Thanks in advance

  4. I have always wanted to do this, but finding the right glasses case is rather tricky :)
    Great job; I love the horse’s silhouette just like you do, and love the finished texture of those black glitters!

    Have a great day,
    Mira

    • Hi Mary,
      Mod Podge is a glue. You can make your own using equal parts and mixing one part white glue (like the kind you use in school) with one part water.
      I hope this helps.

  5. Love this!!! ♥ did you have any problem with the horse falling off? I’m thinking about doing this for my prom outfit c:

    • Hi Celeste!
      Thank you! ❤️ I used a really strong glue and it hasn’t fallen off yet. I think that would be super cute for prom! Great idea!

  6. This is simply genius! I can’t wait to make mine for an upcoming Night at the Races fundraiser. Thanks so much for sharing!
