DIY Glitter Christmas Ornaments

I was taking a look at our Christmas tree this weekend and noticed that it just needed a bit of pizazz.
It did not have that "Enlow" flair to it.
I wanted someone to look at our tree and know it was ours.


So I whipped out some craft supplies and came up with these beauties.


All you need is some clear ornaments, glitter, and stickers or rub ons.
The key to the stickers is that they need to be just the letter and no background to it.


I first put the glitter in the ornaments.
I placed the ornaments in a bowel and then took a piece of scrap paper and shaped it like a small funnel.
This may the entry of the glitter a lot easier.

Then I secured the top,
added the stickers to say my last name,
smacked a ribbon on it,

and there you have it!
I used silver glitter flakes and regular colored glitter.

I think they turned out great.
These would make nice teacher gifts or something personal for that special friend.
