How to make glitter ornaments

January 3, 2013

I had a great vacation, especially having lot of fun with the kids. We worked on few projects, traveled and did lot of shopping!

We made our own ornaments. Both my girls love glitter so I got different colors for them to work with. I used Martha Stewart Crafts Glitter Multipack, 24 Per Pack that comes in bright and beautiful colors. Here is what you will need to make these beautiful ornaments.

Clear glass ornaments
Floor cleaner
Rubbing alcohol

That’s it! Now you are ready to make your own glitter ornaments. This is a great project to do with the kids.

We need to make sure that the ornaments are nice and clean so pour a little bit of rubbing alcohol and swish it, making sure entire ornament is nice and clean. Then place the ornament upside down on a paper/plastic cup for rubbing alcohol to drain out. Let the ornaments dry for few minutes.

Once they are dry, pour a little bit of the floor cleaner into the ornament and swirl it around. Make sure entire ornament is well coated with the floor cleaner. Pour the excess back into the bottle or you can pour it into the next cleaned ornament.


Pour the glitter and swirl it around the same way you did with the floor cleaner. If you see gabs and the entire inside of the ornament is not covered with the glitter then pour some more glitter and swirl it.


Pour the access glitter back into the bottle or you can simply pour it onto the paper as I did. Having it on the paper makes it easier to pour it back into the bottle. My little one had lot of fun with it.

Now you can attach the cap and add a beautiful ribbon to hang it on your Christmas tree or give it as gift to your family and friends.

I like to decorate mine with rhinestones, stickers, buttons, pearls, etc.
