DIY: Christmas Ornaments!

A few weeks back, I saw this DIY pin on Pinterest and just had to try it for myself!  Considering I never have the same Christmas decor 2 years in a row, I decided it was probably a good {money saving} idea to make my own ornies this year.

For starters, this year's decor color scheme is: bronze, copper and champagne.

 SO here's what you'll need:
1. plain glass ornaments

 {$3.99 for 12 on sale at Hobby Lobby}

 2. fine grain glitter 
{$4.99 for a 6-pack}

3. the glue that holds it all together:
yep, Pledge floor finish [because it's sticky]
Make sure you get the one with FUTURE on the bottle!

Now, let's get started:
Remove the metal hangers from each ornament

Pour a small amount of floor cleaner liquid 
into the ornie and swirl it around until it coats the inside. 
Be sure to pour the excess liquid back into the bottle

Next, pour your glitter into the opening and swirl 
or shake it all around, covering the entire 
inside wall of the ornament

Once you have completely covered the inside 
of the ornament with glitter, dump out any 
excess glitter back into its container.

Lastly, put the hangers back on the ornaments and VOILA! 

Mmmmm, I can't wait to deck my halls with these shimmery balls. HA!

You can do this too! It's so easy!
