Are you looking for a fun craft to do with your kids or your friends? These glitter ornaments are so easy and beautiful. We learned how to make these ornaments a few days ago at a Mommy’s Craft at the girls school. These are perfect teacher and hostess gifts for the holidays.
*** We used the advice from the organizer and bought the glitter at Michaels because they were 1/2 off and then we used the online coupon. We bought the clear ornaments at Hobby Lobby (50% off).Step 1: Pour the Pledge into a clear ornament (about half full). DO NOT SHAKE!!!! We all made this mistake and you will have to start over. If you shake the Pledge is will cause bubbles and the glitter will not stick. Gently move the Pledge from side to side and up and down trying to cover the inside (without causing bubbles).
Step 2: Pour the Pledge into a small paper cup. You will be able to reuse over an over.
Step 3: Choose a glitter color and pour in a small paper cup. You will then pour the glitter into the inside of the ornament (a good amount…1/8 cup or more). If you don’t put a lot of glitter, you will be able to see through your ornament…In this case, more is better.
Step 4: Shake the glitter!
Step 5: Decorate the outside (ribbon, vinyl, etc).
You can even glitter other items such as jars and vases!
