Last week I tried out this fun way of making glitter ornaments. I love glitter and its shine at the holidays but not the mess. Coating the inside of a clear glass ornament with glitter is a great way to get the shine without the mess. I made some ornaments in my color theme- aqua and green. You can buy a specially made product for this project or you can use floor cleaner. Yep, floor cleaner. I started seeing it on several sites and had to give it a try myself.
Below are my supplies:
Pledge floor care
clear glass ornaments
Martha Stewart fine glitter
a cup for the excess cleaner
a tray to catch my glitter (Mine is made so I can funnel the extra back into the bottle.)
Just swirl the cleaner around in the ball and then pour out the excess. Shake in the glitter and coat the inside of the ball. Done! Easy! and so pretty.
I also saw an idea from Michael's for some polka dot ornaments. You'll need Mod Podge and some spouncers for this one. Make dots on your ornament with the Mod Podge and spouncer and coat them with glitter. Once they are dry you can use a soft paint brush to brush away the excess glitter.
I love how these turned out.
Another quick and easy craft for the busy holiday season.
