(You could write names, dates, messages or even use stencils!)
Sprinkle and set aside to dry.

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.
