I think that I may seriously need a glitter intervention. I can’t help it! These glittered ornaments are so ridiculously simple to make that I can’t seem to stop! I made nearly two dozen of them today before I ran out of blank ornaments, and now I’m dying to get back to the craft store to get more supplies. I’ve seen this idea floating all over Pinterest in various forms, but I think it can originally be traced back to Everyday Cricut way back in 2009.
What you need: clear glass ornaments, glitter (I prefer the look of fine glitter, but regular glitter works just as well) and clear floor wax. Yep, floor wax. I used Pledge with Future Shine from my local grocery store.
The process is super easy – pop the hanger cap off the top of the ornament, squirt a little floor wax inside the ornament and swirl it around to coat the inside. Pour the excess back into the bottle and let the ornament sit upside down for a minute until it’s no longer dripping (I put mine into an egg carton to drain for about 2 minutes). Using a funnel or rolled up piece of paper, pour the glitter into the ornament and shake until the entire surface is covered. You can even pour the extra glitter right back into the bottle too. Replace the hanger cap and you’re all done – easy peasy!
Seriously. Cannot. Stop. Glittering. Things.
