Holiday DIY: Silver Glitter Ornaments

Gosh, we’re so refreshed after the wonderfully fun holiday weekend. We’re full to the brim with holiday happiness: good food, relaxation, small business shopping, beach combing, and tree trimming were all on our weekend list! What about you? Was your weekend wonderful?
 
Now that the holidays are officially upon us our minds are focused on bringing joy and cheer in even the smallest of ways. Nothing says festive more than handmade goodness to gift to others this season. We’re excited to fill an Etsy order of our sea glass and snow globe ornaments this week and we’re also happy to share this simple DIY with you as well: silver glitter ornaments. The perfect tree or mantle adornment, these gems add a dash of sparkle and magic during this season.
 
You’ll need: glass ornament balls {ours are from Michael’s} | Elmer’s glue | large grade silver glitter | a brush | ribbon
 
What to do: brush the glue onto the ornament in quarters {we tried painting the entire sphere at once but it got a little messy} and roll and sprinkle glitter onto the glue. Let dry on a cookie rack or atop a glass and proceed with the remaining quarters.
 
Once all covered, slip an 8″ piece of ribbon {holding the ends together} through the hole of the ornament’s top. Pull through and loop the ribbon around itself, pulling as you go. There you have it: glittering festive loveliness!
Bring some holiday cheer to the next party you make an entrance at and the hostess will be ever-so-grateful to receive the handmade holiday sweetness.
 
 
Are you feeling the holiday spirit yet? What’s your favorite DIY project so far?
