Glitter Christmas Ornaments


If you haven't seen this yet, you will be amazed! I know I was. You can use Pledge floor wax, glitter, and glass ball ornaments to make beautiful ornaments with little to no mess. I've seen this on several different blogs and on Pinterest. I first came across this idea on Green Bean's Crafterole.

A few weeks ago, I bought some Martha Stewart glitter, so I had to give this a try. The Martha Stewart glitter comes in the most amazing colors. I loved the results.


All you need is a bottle of Pledge Future liquid floor wax, glitter, glass ball ornaments, and a funnel.


Pour about a tablespoon of Future into an ornament. Gently swirl around. Don't shake, or you will get bubbles. Slowly rotate the ornament and pour the excess liquid back into the bottle.


Using a funnel, pour glitter into the ornament.


Holding your thumb over the hole, shake the ornament so that the glitter covers the entire surface.


Tap the ornament and pour the excess glitter back into the bottle. Continue tapping and pouring until no more glitter comes out.


Let it dry and insert hanger.


The ornaments turned out so pretty! No glitter on the tree, floor, or me!

  23. okay, I LOVE this. and since I am a bit slow when it comes to following directions, I want to ask questions before I begin. ;) you DID say to pour glitter into ornament and then pour back out back into the original glitter container, right? how does it not get sullied up by the future in the ornament? or do I misunderstand? Thank you for this! It's the PERFECT gift for bus drivers and the seemingly endless list of teachers I need to have my kids make gifts for!

  24. Sara, the little amount of glitter that goes back into the glitter container does not seem to affect it. If you are unsure, pour the excess glitter into a new container. Thanks for visiting.
