I love DIY ornament projects, especially when they’re quick and easy to make. And this one is both of those things, so it’s a definite winner.
Using plastic fillable ornament shells you can make these DIY glitter ornaments in minutes.
- plastic ornaments that can be snapped together (try these ones from Baker Ross.)
- glitter in various colours
- Mod Podge (or craft glue)
Step 1: Start by brushing Mod Podge on the inside of each half of the ornament.
Step 2: Then pour glitter into each ornament half. I started with one colour and then added a second.
Step 3: Spread the glitter around by moving the ornament half side to side until the glitter attaches to the glue. Continue this process until the entire ornament half is covered in glitter. Dump out any excess glitter.
Step 4: Wait for the glue to dry completely. Then, snap the two halves of the ornament together, making sure the plastic hoop at the top of each half matches up to the other.
Step 5: Add string through the plastic loop and tie off to create a way to hang the ornaments from the tree. All done.
