Step 1: Supplies
A medium sized funnel
An empty water bottle
Clear Elmer's glue
Room temperature water
Super fine glitter
Hot glue gun
Step 2: Bottle Prep
To have a full view of everything in the bottle, remove the labels and clean off anything inside or outside of the bottle.
Step 3: Fill the Bottle Up
With the funnel, fill the bottle about 3/4th of the way up with room temperature water.
Step 4: Add the Glue
Remove the funnel and slowly pour the glue into the bottle. Close the lid and shake it until the water and glue are mixed well.
Step 5: Time for Glitter!
Place the funnel back into the bottle and carefully pour in the super fine glitter. You can choose to keep the funnel in to put the regular sized glitter in or take it out like I did and give the glitter bottle a few light shakes.
Step 6: End Result
Drizzle hot glue onto the thread of the bottle cap and tighten the lid onto the bottle. Shake well and watch the glitter dance around!
