DIY Glitter Ornaments for Christmas and the Holidays

DIY Glitter Ornaments are not only a beautiful addition to your holiday decor, they are fun to make and surprisingly easy. Using this method, the glitter stays on the inside of your ornaments, not the outside. Less mess with all the sparkle! You only need a few basic supplies to make these gorgeous DIY Glitter Ornaments. You can find most of the supplies right at your local dollar store, but I have provided links to Amazon for your convenience and reference.

I started making these DIY Glitter Ornaments last year when I first got my Cricut Explore. I was looking for fun unique Christmas gifts for coworkers and our customers. I ended up making so many different variations of the glitter ornaments, we were able to give everyone something different. They all loved them. The ornaments were all made the same way, but we personalized them with names, quotes or beautiful pictures on the outside using 631 vinyl.

The possibilities are endless when it comes to personalizing them. If you don’t have access to a cutting machine, you can apply stickers or photos to the outside. You could also leave the bulb itself plain and add a decorative ribbon to the top of the cap. There are so many things you can add to them to make them your own. 

Here is a quick video tutorial on how we made them. The full instructions with photos are below.

How to assemble:

Remove the cap of the ornament

Using a funnel or paper cone, pour a small amount of floor cleaner into the ornament and swirl it around the inside, covering all of the inside. DO NOT SHAKE! Shaking will cause bubbles, and glitter does not like bubbles.

Pour the excess floor cleaner back into the bottle.

Using a different funnel or paper cone pour a generous amount of glitter into the ornament. Any kind of glitter will work, but the extra fine gives it a more even coating and doesn’t look quite so chunky.

Swirl it around to cover the entire inside. Dump the excess glitter back into the bottle. No need to waste supplies!

Replace the ornament cap, and decorate with your favorite embellishments.

I love to add a small bow to the top of mine. Sometimes right through the ornament loop, other times I glue it to the top below the cap.

Need a gift for your pet loving neighbor? These will be perfect. You could put their pups name on the back and the year. How can they not love a personalized gift like that? The possibilities are endless. 

I would love to hear from you. Who would you personalize an ornament for? If you are not using them as gifts, what color would you make your own to match your decor?
