How to Make Pretty Glitter Ball Ornaments...

We made some of these at MOPS the other day. Just what my tree needed.
To make these you will need...
...some clear glass Christmas balls...
...some ribbon (anything you like), some spray adhesive and
ANY kind/color of glitter that makes you happy...
...this helps...
...so do these...
...start by removing the tops...ever so gently...
...put the opening of the bulb directly against the adhesive nozzle...at a slight angle...make tiny little squirts at 4-5 intervals...(squirt glue, rotate bulb a little, squirt, rotate...about 4-5 times)...
...pour roughly a half to three quarters of a teaspoon of glitter into the bulb...place finger or something else over the hole to plug it up and shake, shake, shake until the entire inside of the bulb is coated in glitter...
...recap the ball and add some ribbon for hanging...
...Ta Da!...You're welcome...now go make some for you! :)
I think these would also make great Christmas gifts, too! :)

Have a Holly Jolly Day!! xoxo

So awesome. I'm going to show our crafts coordinator, if you don't mind. Perfectly perfect for a MOPS craft.

Hope you had a great weekend, wonderful friend.

So pretty! I love how the glitter is on the inside, so it doesn't get all over the floor every time you touch it!

What a great solution for having fabulous glittered ornaments and not having a fabulously glittered house for the rest of the year.
