I love to create and craft for the holidays, and Christmas is my favorite. I love all the lights and all the decorations, I love making the decorations as much as the season. A few years ago I really got into the spirit and started glittering my own ornaments when I couldn’t find the right colors I wanted and needed. I loved it! I still glitter some the same way today (see Front Door Garland) BUT last year, I needed a lot of ornaments for a new tree, I needed them fast, simple, and easy to clean up. Here is how you can glitter those glass balls on the INSIDE, not outside, and save a ton of mess!
First remove the top from the ornament. Squeeze some of the Floor Finish inside the ball. It doesn’t take a lot.
Next, Swirl the finish around to coat the inside of the ball.
Pour the excess finish back into floor finish bottle.
Now, take your glitter and pour inside:
Now, turn & swirl the ornament to make sure all parts are covered with the glitter.
Once all parts are covered, pour the excess glitter back into the container.
Now, add the top back and its ready to hang. Literally!
You can use all sizes of glitter, the coarser glitter tends to have (spots) where its empty and looks like it has holes skimpy. but you can always mix them, and mixx colors Here is one of my favorites I made with red, black, & silver glitter
And here are some more
