I made some glitter ornaments! Take a look!

This is what I started with. Just a clear glass ornament.
Then I played!




Here is what you need!

Glass ornaments from the craft store
Ultra fine glitter 
Future Floor wax (I can imagine any CLEAR floor wax would work)
Ribbon
If I would have had some die cuts or some vinyl lettering I may have added that.

Here is the video where I got the idea from:

  1. Thanks so much for posting this! I had been thinking of a similar project, but only with the glitter on the outside! I figured that would flake off so I didn't do the project. This is so much better! What glitter did you use? I'm particularly interested in the last photo, third ornament in - seems like it might be a glitter mix or a bit holo. Thanks so much!

  2. I have another question - I have a Martha Stewart glitter set that is "fine" - is all the glitter you used "ultra fine"? Do you think I can get away with "fine" glitter? Thanks in advance.

  5. mr. pineapple man,
    Thanks a bunch,

    polishedlyrics,
    Thank you gal. :)

    Laura,
    Thanks. I have never done anything with glitter. I picked up the litle tiny bottles at Joann's. It just has to be any fine glitter. A lot of folks use Martha Stuarts. What you have it perfect. That ornament you like is two different blues mixed together. :)

    Cel,
    Thanks a bunch. I would love to see what your Mom come up with. :)

    ChaosButery,
    Thanks so much. I think that was all the glitter I had left. LOL.

  9. Why, you crafty gal, you. What a great idea. I never thought of using floor polish as a glue for glitter, but when you think about it, it makes perfect sense.

    Your balls are so pretty. I love the embellishments, too.

    It was nice to see you and hear your voice. :D

  13. That is just soooo cool!! At first, I thought you had painted the glitter on the outside of the ball. But it's much more practical, smoother, and long lasting if the glitter is inside. Pretty nice idea!

    You only need a clear floor was, fine glitter and clear ornaments. Hope you can find the stuff because they are cheap, fun, fast and fabulous. :)
