Homemade Christmas Ornaments

How to make a glitter snowflake ornament

I thought these looked so pretty! Glitter Snowflake!

  • 1 clear glass ball ornament
  • Beacon Glitter it (from Hobby Lobby)
  • Silver Glitter
  • vinyl snowflake
  1. Per instructions on the bottle of GLITTER IT -remove hanger from ornament and add one tablespoon of white vinegar to one cup of warm water and pour a small amount into the ornament. Swirl around to thoroughly clean glass. Empty ornament and rinse well with warm water. Let dry completely. (do this step a day a head or use a hair dryer to speed up drying)
  2. Pour a small amount of GLITTER IT into ornament. Swirl around to coat the entire inner surface. Add more if needed.
  3. Immediately add about 1 teaspoon of fine glitter to inside of ornament . ( you can pour some glitter onto a piece of paper with a fold and use it to guide/pour the glitter into the ornament) then rotate and shake ornament until the inside of the ornament is completely covered with glitter. If necessary, add additional GLITTER-IT and glitter until all areas are covered.
  4. Turn ornament upside down and shake away any excess glitter.
  5. Add vinyl snowflake to outside of ornament.
  6. Replace hanger, (*note – you can spray paint the hanger with white spray paint to give some contrast.)
  7. Go hang on the tree and enjoy!!
    I saw this tutorial on a blog and though it was so cute! I love tutorials! Anyway, I am going to try it. I also found this pumpkin white chocolate drink and thought it looked so yummy I had to share. I am going to try this also!!

  3. Just before serving, top each mug with a generous mound of whipped cream, a few shavings of white chocolate, and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon. Serve immediately.
