Picture of Glitter Ornament DIY
I saw this on Craftgawker (a great site if you’ve never heard of it) and had to try it for myself. My sister (who graciously modeled this DIY for me) and I spent the whole day Sunday making these neat little ornaments. I added a few extras to the list of supplies (Thanks to my brilliant sister!) and was really pleased with the success of our experiments.

The steps are really easy and can be done with kids so long as parents handle the floor wax/finish.

1. Glitter, sequins, little buttons (yes!)
2. Plain, glass ornaments (any shape you want)
3. Floor Finish/Wax
4. Cup (not pictured)

Really pretty. I bought one of those clear ornaments and was thinking of using glitter. I never would have thought to use floor wax.

this is awesome! I want to try it with a small light bulb, and am wondering if Mod Podge would work? It seems like it should...

Beautiful! And it won't flake off and get everywhere since it's on the inside :)
