Christmas is almost here and I’m betting there are a few of you who haven’t put all of your decorations on your tree yet. If not, you should make these glitter Christmas ball ornaments. It’s a super easy DIY project and you can even do it with your kids. You’re going to have a big glitter mess with, or without them, so you should just enjoy the bonding experience. If you let them pour the glitter in and shake it up, they’ll love it!
Things You Will Need
Clear glass ornaments
Okay, so I didn’t actually use pledge. I’ve seen this done with Pledge but I didn’t have any. It’s cold here in lovely PA and I’m a baby about it, so I wasn’t planning on going to get any. I have this wood cleaner that I used instead and it worked just fine. I’m not really sure what the ingredient is that makes the glitter stick, but it’s working so I’m not going to question it.
Remove the ornament cap and pour or spray some pledge into it.
swirl it around so that it covers the ball and pour it out.
While the ornament is still wet, pour the glitter in and shake it up (with your finger over the top). Make sure the glitter covers the whole inside of the ornament.
Warning: if you want to mix different colors of glitter, do it before you put it in the ornament. It won’t mix at all if you try to do it once the glitter is inside. Trust me. I failed miserably.
When you’re done, flip the ornament upside down and let it dry.
Flip the ornament over and super glue the top down so you don’t have a glitter explosion later on.
Using your glass-safe pens, draw on your favorite holiday symbols, phrases, bible verses or whatever comes to mind.
When you’re finished you’ll have some really cute glitter ornaments that make great decorations for your tree or nice gifts to give.
