Project Inspiration: DIY Glittered Glass Ornaments

DIY Ornaments

Hello, crafty friends! Shirley Pando here with an easy way to create your own glittered glass ball ornaments. Give these beauties to friends and family this holiday season. Yours is sure to be their favorite gift.










Check out the instructions and video below.











DIY Glittered Glass Ornaments



Supplies:
  • Clear glass ball ornaments with detachable metal cap and hanger loop, any size - LIKE THESE
  • Pledge with Future Premium Floor Finish
  • FINE glitter, any color - like Martha Stewart, Art Institute, Stampin’ Up, etc.
  • Empty egg carton for drying ornaments
  • Nonstick craft sheet or covering to protect table
  • Paper towels
  • Gloves to protect hands, optional
  • Ribbon or other embellishments, optional
Ornament Instructions:
  1. Remove the metal cap and wire hanger from the glass ornament.
  2. Squirt a little of the Future Floor Finish in the glass ornament. Swirl it to get the liquid around the entire inner surface. This is an important step as the glitter will stick to it.
  3. Pour out the excess liquid into a paper cup and use for the next ornament.
  4. Pour glitter into the wet ornament and swirl to distribute the glitter to the entire inner surface. Save glitter for another ornament.
  5. Let ornament dry upside down in an empty egg carton.
  6. Re-attach the metal pieces and add a ribbon hanger, if desired!

  1. Great idea! They look beautiful Unfortunately, there are no clear glass ornaments for sale in my little island town, so I'll have to order some and try this next year!
