A few years ago I saw the prettiest glitter ornaments made with Stampin' UP! ink and glitter. Sadly they would have cost me quite a bit of money so I never made them. The only problem was I couldn't get those ornaments out of my head. Thankfully Pinterest came along and I did a quick search for Glitter ornaments and was thrilled to find different instructions using floor polish and glitter.
Easy enough, and very affordable.

We found it takes a lot of glitter. I ended up using half of a big bottle of Martha Stewart glitter to make 24 round ornaments and four of the kids light bulb ornaments.
Also the dark colors of glitter covered a lot better than the lighter colors.
They are so pretty, I LOVE them, and I only broke one!!
Thankfully there is enough floor polish and glitter left to make a few more if needed, especially because the cat won't stop playing with them and has already broke one in only three days.
I also found these ornaments when I went into Hobby Lobby to get the round ornaments and I couldn't pass them up. I knew they would be so cute glittered for the kids tree, and they were 50% off so I bought the 8 boxes they had.
I found a Christmas package of Martha Stewart Glitter with 8 colors and then dug a few other colors out of my box from a Halloween package of glitter I bought a couple months ago. The colors were beautiful and they turned out even better then I imagined.
It was a messy but fun project and we couldn't be happier with our new glitter ornaments.
They turned out awesome, I would totally do this if I was back home.ReplyDelete
