Glittery Ornaments

I am a cliché’ of a woman in one way; I like things that sparkle.
I take that back.
I LOVE things that sparkle.

 

I especially love sparkly things on Christmas trees surrounded by lights. Here’s to things that glitter and shine.

 

Get some of these again…

and some spray glue and some glitter…

and some regular glue.
No, you don’t have to give Martha your money.
This seemed just like Elmer’s to me.

And maybe some paintbrushes if you want.

Draw some designs with your glue on the outside…
(You could write names, dates, messages or even use stencils!)

Sprinkle and set aside to dry.

OR…

Spray the inside of your ornament with the spray glue…

Errr…That’s a little too much.
If you make a whoopsie, just drop a little bit of water in there.
You’ll swoosh it around and then pour out the excess.
This just thins out your glue a bit.
It will still work.

Pour in some glitter. Tape over the hole and shake. Pour out the excess glitter.

And now you have:

For the ones you set aside, allow those to dry for a day and then take them outside and brush off the excess glitter. I used a soft bristled paintbrush and it worked really well. It’s easy to drop them when you do this so I suggest sticking a finger into the hole at the top as opposed to holding it.

Stay tuned! There’s more!
