Glitter Ornaments Tutorial

Happy Monday Everyone!! Today I wanted to share the ornaments I made.

I did NOT come up with this idea on my own, but I have adapted the original idea so that you can make ornaments in ANY Stampin’ UP Color!!!! How exciting is that?!

Of course, if you have colored glitter, you can skip the reinkers and go straight for the colored glitter!

Here is our Christmas tree. We use a faux tree because my mom is SEVERELY allergic to the real ones (she broke out in hives one year and we have never tried a real tree again!!)

All those ball ornaments were made with GLITTER!!!! YAY!!

Now for some of my ornaments, I used colored fine glitter, but for others, I created my own Stampin’ UP colored ornaments by using Classic Reinkers in Kiwi Kiss, Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, and Rich Razzleberry. Just follow the steps below:

SUPPLIES NEEDED:
*Classic Reinker of your color choice and Stampin’ UP Dazzling Diamonds glitter OR colored glitter
*Pledge liquid floor wax with Future Floor Shine (it is in a clear bottle with a colored cap, in the cleaning isle, see shopping list below for a link to check out what this stuff is!)
*Clear glass ball ornaments (can be purchased at your local big box crafting store)
*LOTS of paper towels (this is messy!!!) and/or be near a sink!
*Powder Pal Trays
STEPS:
1. Take off the top of the clear ornament.

2. Pour a small amount of Pledge with Future Floor Shine into ornament.

3. Pour 2-3 drops of Classic Reinker into the ball ornament. I am using a retired Kiwi Kiss Classic Reinker for the sample ball ornament.

4. Swirl the liquid around until the entire inside of the ornament is coated (you can use a piece of plastic, paper towel, or your finger to plug up the hole while you are swirling, I just used my finger LOL)

5. Pour out excess liquid and discard.

6. Pour glitter into ornament over the powder pal tray.

7. Swirl glitter around until the entire inside of the ornament is coated with glitter.

8. Let the ornament dry and then replace the top of the ornament. And VOILA, you have your own customized ornaments!!!
