Easy Peasy Glitter Ornament DIY

Written by: Renee Reiter

I have to first say that I just cannot get over how easy this was to do. I am almost sad that my Christmas shopping is done because I can assure you I would have made everyone a glitter ornament!

You’ll need:

  • Water Based Polycrylic Crystal Clear Finish (you can use this for tons of other DIYs)
  • Extra fine glitter
  • Two funnels
  • An clear plastic ornament
  • A piece of paper (for catching  extra glitter)
  • A solo cup or a glass bowl (for catching extra Polycrylic Protective Finish)
  • A decal, stickers, or markers to decorate

First I used one funnel to pour in about 1/4 cup of the Polycrylic and then slowly rolled the ornament around until it was all coated.

Then I drained the excess into a cup turning the ornament while I did to coat the top opening.

You want to make sure all of the excess drains out so that you don’t have some spots that clump or are darker than others. I let mine drain for almost a whole minute. Then the fun part! I used the other funnel to pour in a bunch of glitter and then shook the ornament until it was evenly coated.

Then I dumped the excess glitter onto a piece of paper and then used the paper to dump my excess glitter back into my glitter bottle for use another time.

 

 

Now time to decorate! One is a smiley face because it is a gift for my mom whole absolutely LOVES smiley faces and the other was an idea my husband had since I was already using yellow glitter, he suggested a Charlie Brown inspired ornament would be fun. I am already dying to make tons more and the ideas won’t quite coming!! Have you ever made a glitter ornament before? If so, I would love to see a picture!
