Glitter Ornament Tutorial

Have you seen all the glitter ornaments around blogland lately?  I have and I’ve fallen in love with them. 


As soon as I figured out how to make them, I ran to Michaels for all my supplies and got to work.  I made two dozen the first night.  They are so easy, so fast and they’ll make excellent hostess gifts for all my Christmas parties this year.

Here is what you’ll need:

Pledge Floor Care with Future Shine (this stuff will last forever)
Clear glass ornaments
Envelope – to use as a funnel.  Cut in half and then snip off one corner
Extra Fine Glitter
Two small containers – one for the extra glitter and one for the extra Pledge


1.  Pop out all the metal hooks from the ornaments


2.  Squirt a little bit of the Pledge into the ornament and swirl it around.  Try not to shake it so there won’t be a lot of bubbles.


3.  After the inside of the ornament is completely coated in Pledge pour it into one of your containers.


4.  Pour your glitter into the ornament.


5.  Cover the opening of the ornament with your finger and shake the glitter so that everything is covered.


6.  Pour excess glitter into the 2nd container.


7.  Pop your hooks back on and you’re done!

  18. Turned out great! Thanks!!

  19. Those are super cute! Can you use the clear plastic ones too? Or is the pledge to harsh for plastic?

  20. My daughter picked this idea for her annual ornament. She's 4 years old and BIG time into glitter. We used pink glitter then did hand-print snowmen on the outside of the ornaments.

  21. These look great and super easy to do. Just found this today, so to late for this year. But I am going to hit the after Christmas clearance and grab a bunch of the clear balls to make for next year.

  22. Great post. I will be experiencing many of these issues as well.

  28. HI, Love glittering ornaments, I've been doing it for a couple years now, but i have never tried plastic ones. Do you think that it would work in the plastic ones??

  29. Would this work on Plastic ornaments as well? I would like to do this with some tweens but glass isn't an option. Thank you!

    1. I read somewhere that you can use plastic. I've got both glass and plastic and I'm gonna try a couple plastic and see how they turn out and how well they look next year
