Glitter Ornament Tutorial

Glitter Ornaments via LashesandDashesFor the past two years I have made Glitter Christmas Ornaments for my Family and Friends. The Ornaments are super easy to make once you get the hang of it! This year on a couple of the ornaments I combined paint and glitter. I also painted faces on a few to make Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, and Frosty. Excuse the messy table, it is my crafting table that has seen better days.

Supplies

Floor Wax (I bought mine at Dollar General, but you could also use Pledge Floor Care Multi Surface Finish.)

Fine Glitter

Glass Ornaments

Funnel

Instructions 

Swish water around the glass ornaments, place the ornaments upside down, let dry completely. Place a drop of the floor cleaner in the dry ornaments, swirl the cleaner around the whole ornament, let the excess cleaner drop out of the ornament into the bottle of cleaner. Using a funnel (I made my own out of paper) pour in the glitter, turn the ornament so that the glitter covers the entire ornament. Let the excess glitter fall back into the container of glitter. Place the top with the hook back on ornament. After this step you can either finish or you can add the finishing touches. A few adjustments I made, was using the floor wax as a paint thinner, I mixed together a bit of acrylic paint and the floor wax. Using the same technique I did with the glitter, swirl the paint around the ornament until the ornament is covered. Play around with the paint, you could mix together two colors, or add glitter.
