DIY Glitter Ornaments
Whether you’ve gotten your Christmas decor out or haven’t, the Christmas season is right around the corner and before you know it you’ll be wanting to make your own DIY glittler ornaments! I absorb the holiday season like a sponge, so naturally I make it to the Christmas isle every single time I enter a store. It’s usually the first place we go before any real shopping gets done. I saw these plastic, empty ornaments screaming for me to decorate them. I only picked up two at Wal-Mart for 88 cents a piece and now I wish I would have at least gotten a dozen! I may just have to go back and get more because I have several more ideas I want to do.
All you need for this project is Mod Podge, Silhouette Glitter, a brush to apply, and the plastic ornament. If you’d like to get the glitter surrounding the inside of the ornament, you can use a floor finish or an ink refill to have it stick. Yes, floor wax. It works. Since I didn’t have any on hand, I used Mod Podge and decorated the outside, plus it matched the rest of my other ornaments to have the glitter on the outside.
For the first ornament, I wanted it to be a candy cane. I covered the entire ornament in Mod Podge and then covered it entirely in white glitter. When that was dry, I Mod Podged lines over the white glitter and spread the red glitter. If you let the white dry long enough, the red won’t stick to the white glitter. Add a cute ribbon and add it to your tree.
My second ornament is even easier. Mod Podge whatever shape (in this case, circles) on the ornament and add the glitter. I did one color at a time to make sure the colors didn’t mix. Create a few circles, glitter, then sit to dry. Once dry, add more circles, glittler, dry. And so on.
Most importantly, put some Christmas music on and have a blast! These are so fun!
