Tutorial #3: Ornaments. Glitter without the mess!

15 Nov

Love the look of glittery ornaments but hate the mess they make every time you pull them out?  I made some easy hand-made glittery ornaments that took no time at all.  Only 3 easy steps!  Just learn from my mistake and have paper towel handy and put newspaper down before you begin.  The process of making them can be a bit messy!

Materials:

-Glass Ball Ornaments (on sale NOW at Michael’s for $5!)
-Glue
-Glitter
-2 Containers of some sort (use a cup, the square dish wasn’t so hot)

Step 1: Squirt some glue in your container and add a little water so it is runny enough to pour.  Mix thoroughly so there are no lumps (you might not want to use your kitchen spoon like I did, try a popsicle stick instead).

Step 2:  Take the cap off the ornament and pour some glue inside.  Swirl the glue around so the entire inside of the ornament is coated.  Poor out the excess back into the container.

Step 3:  Pour some glitter into the ornament and swirl around until the inside of the ornament is thoroughly covered in glitter.  Pour out the excess.  Do this over the second container so you can catch the glitter and put it back in the jar.  Voila!  You’re done!  See, told you it was easy!
