A DIY tutorial to create a winter centerpiece fake cake with glitter painted trees. Paint wood trees with glitter and snow to make a fun winter scene.
We all know glitter makes quite the statement but we don’t always like the bits of glitter that seem to land everywhere. Fear not these glitter products I’m sharing today from DecoArt won’t shed so you won’t be finding glitter anywhere except on your beautiful decor.
For this winter centerpiece I painted a ton of wood cut-outs in shades of green. Then I added Glamour Dust and Craft Twinkles to make glitter trees! And these trees won’t be shedding onto your table.
- An ultra fine glitter paint
- Adds subtle sparkle
- Water based and non-toxic
For these glitter trees made of wood and MDF I opted to paint a base coat of DecoArt Americana acrylic (first in white and then green) and then add the glitter on top. The glitter needs at least two coats for solid coverage. Glamour Dust can be used on wood, plaster, paper mache, fabric and more.
- large flake glitter paint
- heavy glitter loading includes multiple shades in each bottle
- water-based and non-toxic
For the best results use a combination of glitters and multiple layers to achieve full coverage.

I cut out a bunch of little trees from plywood and MDF. You could definitely use store bought trees. My trees range in size from 3″ tall to almost 6″.
