Glitter Christmas Ornament~ DIY Gift Idea
Here is a beautiful ornament that can be personalized any way you want it. Change the glitter color, add multiple colors of glitter. Maybe add some vinyl to the outside with a name or date. Great gift for teachers, friends, or just hang them on your own tree!
You will need:
Extra fine glitter (can find at most craft stores)
Pump hairspray with a removable lid
Glass, clear ornament
Cup that is the right size for your ornament to be able to rest on the rim
Ribbon for top *optional*
Begin by taking the top off of your ornament. Pour a small amount of your hairspray into the ornament. Roll it around so that the inside is all covered. Pour the extra back into the bottle, and then rest the ornament upside down on your cup to allow any extra hairspray to collect in the cup.
Give it just a minute before adding your glitter. Now do the same thing, swirl the ornament to allow the glitter to stick to the hairspray. Once you have pretty good coverage, set the ornament upside down on your cup again, allowing the cup to catch any extra glitter and also to dry.
Once it is dry, you may put the top back on. Do it gently so that it doesn’t rub off your glitter. Add a pretty ribbon to the top, put vinyl on the outside, wrap in a pretty package and there you are with a nice, personal gift!
