Easy glitter ornaments

The boys and I decided that we had such a good time making the marbled ornaments, that we would also make some larger glitter ornaments to be gifted to the boys' great-grandparents for Christmas.

Now this was SUPER easy and really makes a statement.


You will need:


  • clear glass ornaments
  • Mop and Glow
  • super fine glitter in your colors of choice
  • a paper funnel
  • ribbon for bows and hanging

    • Take the top off the ornament and place it to the side. Squirt a little bit of Mop and Glow into the ornament and swirl around to coat the entire inside. Turn it upside down on the Mop and Glow bottle to drain the excess.
      Use the paper funnel to help guide the glitter inside.
      Swirl the glitter inside to coat and tap out the excess.
      Put the top back on and add ribbon as you wish.
      Super fun and super easy.

      I will be heading to get gold ribbon for the the crystal white ones and a combo red and green for the red and green ones tomorrow. I thought I had some ribbon that would work...and I don't. Oh well.

      We will put four in a shoe box filled with shredded colored paper and wrap them up to give as gifts.

      Have I mentioned how much I love homemade gifts?????

      10. Wow! Where'd the idea to use Floor Cleaner come from? I would have never thought that. Would something else work just as well?
