Glitter Christmas Ornaments

Don't you just love bright shiny ornaments on your Christmas tree? Today I am so excited to share this wonderfully easy way to make Christmas ornaments with you. You need very few supplies; just some Future floor wax,  glass ornaments, glitter and ribbon.
First I assemble all my supplies.
Remove the little lids off of each ornament and put down something to protect your work surface in case of spills.
Pour a small amount of Future floor wax into the glass ball and gently swirl to cover the entire inside of the ornament. You do not want air bubbles. Poor back excess into the wax bottle.
Add glitter to the inside of the ornaments and once again gently swirl until completely covered. pour off excess onto card stock that has 1 fold for ease of putting back into the glitter jar.
I then placed decorator hooks on each ornament. I picked these up at Target; they were only $4 for 16 hooks.
I made 35 ornaments (broke 1 trying to get it out of the packaging. Aren't they beautiful? They just shimmer in the light.

Now I will place a bow on each one, and then they will make the perfect gift for neighbors, co-workers, teachers and even friends at church. Everybody collects beautiful ornaments and each year as they are placed on the tree they will remember the person that gave it to them. What a wonderful little gift.

Here are a few photos of ornaments on my tree that are made this way. If you want a closer look just click on the photo.
Now wasn't that easy? And just in time for Christmas. It took me and hour and a half to make all the ornaments while I was visiting with my daughter and then I added the bows in no time at all. I sure hope you enjoyed today's little project.
Gypsy Made Simple will return after the holidays, and I can't wait to have my morning coffee with you. Have a great day.
Thank you for your sweet words of inspiration; your comments continue to inspire me to keep sharing with you.
