DIY Glitter Ornaments

Add some sparkle to your Christmas tree with these DIY glitter ornaments. They're quick and easy to make. Plus they're relatively mess free, since the glitter is on the inside of the bulb.

DIY Glitter Ornaments

I've been wanting to make these glitter ornaments ever since I made glitter jars last year. Last Christmas I couldn't find glass ornaments anywhere. They were all sold out. This year I grabbed 3 boxes before Thanksgiving. And it's a good thing because I went back to get a few more at my local Joanns and they're all gone.

How to make you're own glitter ornaments

Supplies needed:
Clear Glass Ornaments
Glitter {each .49 oz bottle of glitter did 6 ornaments}
Pledge Floor Care with Future Shine {I used wood finish because I had it}

First take the tops off of the ornaments. Next squirt a bit of Pledge into one of the ornaments.

It doesn't take much. Swirl it around until you've coated the whole inside of the ornament with Pledge. Then pour it into the next ornament. I did 7 or 8 ornaments with the small amount shown above.

Pour in the glitter. I used a funnel to prevent spills. Swirl the glitter around to coat.

Repeat with other ornaments.

Leave the tops off for an hour or so to let it dry completely.

Super easy right?

So do you like the silver or the white ones better? I think I like the white ones. But I'll be using them all.  My tree is silver and white. Each year I make something new to add to it. This year I made two new things: these glitter ornaments and my DIY Crystal Snowflakes.
