Day 3 of the 20 Days of Christmas: Glitter Ornaments

For Day 3, I have made some of the popular glitter ornaments.  I have seen many of these made over the past couple of years, but these are the first ones that I made myself.  To make these, I used the Pledge floor wax with future shine (picture at bottom of post) and fine glitter (I used Martha Stewart and Stampendous brands) inside the glass ornaments.  You just swish around a little of the wax, empty it back out and then dump the glitter into your ornament and shake it up.  I used a paper towel to cover the top of the ornament while shaking the wax around and for the glitter as well.  Once they were coated with glitter, I used vinyl to decorate the outside and hot glued some bows to them to add a little decoration. 

The following carts were used:

M and K - Tie the Knot
Jean, Whit and Brit - Don Juan
Angel - Christmas Solutions
Joy - Winter Woodland
Snowflake - Designer's Calendar
Smiley Face - Graphically Speaking

This is the floor wax that I used to coat the inside of the ornament before applying the glitter.

I just made the glitter ornaments also. I just received my white vinyl yesterday in the mail as I want to add snowflakes, etc on them. Yours turned out perfect. Thanks for sharing.
