Christmas is coming!! I thought I would give the glitter ornaments a try.
I use polycrylic instead of pledge. I have read that the floor cleaner will run when stored in a warm place. I want the ornaments to last as long as possible, so I went with poly.
I bought the flat ornaments from Hobby Lobby.
First, pour the poly into a cup. This makes pouring into the glass ornament a lot easier. You can also use a funnel to pour.
Then, start to turn the ornament so the poly covers everywhere. Slowly work your way to the opening, making sure you get the opening covered as well.
Pour the remaining poly into the cup.
I have a second cup on standby. At this point place the ornament upside down over the new cup. I let it continue to drip for 8 minutes.
Get your glitter ready while you are waiting. I found it easiest for me to pour the glitter into the cup.
Then I made a funnel out of a sheet of paper.
When your 8 minutes are up, pour the glitter into the ornament using the funnel. Do the same with the glitter as you did with the poly, slowly turning so everything is coated. Pour the excess glitter back into the cup.
You are done! I let mine air out and fully dry before putting the top back on.
If you have stickers or vinyl you can attach it. I like to put my vinyl on after I glitter.
Make it a great day,
