Glitter Ornament DIY

Who loves unique ornaments? Here is a way to create your own. These Litter ornaments are Super easy to create and gorgeous when finished.

Whether you have a cutting machine or not you can still make these ornaments stunning! You could even personalize with a permanent marker! I know that they carry plastic ornaments at the Dollar Tree but I really like the glass ornaments. I grab a ton of these glass ornaments when they are on sale or clearance from Hobby Lobby.

Let’s talk glitter for a minute. I absolutely love the StarCraft glitter that I purchase from 143Vinyl . It’s like dust glitter, not chunky at all and it coats the ornaments very well!

Glitter ornament DIY supply list

  1. clear ornament
  2. glitter
  3. polycrylic
  4. medicine syringe
  5. paper cups
  6. plastic cups
  7. ribbon for bow
  8. vinyl if you want to add a design
  9. magic marker if you want to add personalization without vinyl

Are you ready to begin? Shake or stir your polycrylic. Take a dropper full and add it to the inside of the ornament. Swirl it around so the entire inside is coated, don’t worry that it won’t stay. As long as you coated it good with the polycrylic you will be fine.

Flip it over and let the access drain out into the plastic cup. While that is draining, take your startcarft glitter and pour it into the paper cup. I use these little bathroom cups because they are the right size and you can fold the sides in together to pour into the ornament easily.

Now take you paper cup, push the sides together and pour into the ornament. Next swirl the glitter all the way around the inside of the ornament so that it is coating the entire ornament. Flip up side down, opening over the paper cup. Tap the sides to get out all the excess glitter.

Place the cap back on the top. now is the time to add a bow, personalize with a magic marker or add your vinyl. You now have a finished ornament! Super cute right? That wasn’t so hard was it?

  • I love the idea of making glitter ornaments. I would have to use plastic vs glass though because my cats like to climb the Christmas tree. I will definitely keep StarCraft glitter in mind for any future projects.

    I would used purple glitter and maybe add some shaped glitter. Adding names would also look great
