To make the glitter shaker

  • Fill the empty plastic bottle with water
  • Sprinkle some coloured glitter into the water
  • Add 1/2 teaspoon of Glycerine to the water (available at all supermarkets in the cake decorating section), and stir. The Glycerine stops the glitter from sticking together
  • Apply a few drops of superglue to the INSIDE of the screw lid, and screw the lid to the bottle tightly
  • Wait for the glue to dry
