.these are the centerpieces I did for the PPS Gold Dome Gala... This is what I used:
* clear "design your own ornaments" from Michael's
* gold spray paint
* box of Sugar in the Raw
* vegetable oil
.Take the clear ornaments, remove the silver top and fill the bottom with glitter OR Sugar in the Raw. Fill with 1/2 oil & 1/2 water for the glitter balls and all water for the sugar balls. Put the silver top back on and submerge in the vase. For the other balls, spray the insides with Gold Spray paint, roll the paint around the ball as it dries.
.This is an inexpensive way to make a big impression.
