Last minute Christmas Decor (Glitter Ornaments)

Am I the only one that is finally getting around to adding ornaments to the tree? I've had it up for a couple of weeks, but somehow the ornaments are just making it on!

Wanted to quickly share a tutorial re: glitter ornaments. I stumbled onto this recipe (it was in more than one place, I guess its pretty popular) while creating my Cubs ornaments.  I ran out of red glitter ornaments and needed to create some on my own. The glitter was large, not fine and seemed to be embedded behind the glass. How exactly did it get stuck there I asked myself? Was the ornament filled with the glitter or was it glued somehow?

Well, it turns out there was a method to achieve this look after all!

Grab some craft ornaments from Hobby Lobby or just some glass ornaments. 3" ornaments are probably the most popular.

Go ahead and swirl it around. Cover the open cover with a rag and turn it upside down. Careful not to shake it though. Shaking will cause bubbles to form and you don't want that.

Empty the excess pledge formula back in the bottle and then add your glitter. You can make a paper funnel to make sure you are not being wasteful. The jumbo glitter flakes look nicer to me than the finer pattern.

Voila! Make sure you coat the inside of the ornament with the glitter and it should stick effortlessly to the sides!
