I bought one of those "funkins" and just applied the mod podge to a few sections at a time. I did this one in two-tone, gold and orange. I love the various types of glitter. The little shards, the very fine, the chunky. All of them look great and especially when combined. I also had an old metal star hanging around, so I grabbed that and sparkled it up.
I put them all into the vase, but they didn't really show the beauty of the fruit. I think if it the vase was a large cynlinder, it would be perfect. Instead, I put it on the old stand-by. The cake/candy platter I painted a million colors, and it is now my favorite color...matte black. You can't lose with matte black, it seems to go with every single holiday's decor. When I piled them on top of the little plate, it looked perfect. I'm definitely using all of these glittery things for the tablescape for Thanksgiving.
