I love simple DIYs and this quick project is so simple. It can be done with any color of glitter, so if bright and bold are not your go to colors, you could do a group of blues or greens. I went with cheerful color for Spring and since it’s almost the month of loooooove.
First, using Martha Stewart Patterning Tape, create a ring around the entire ornament. I didn’t measure, but as I went just kept a close eye on the distance as equal as possible. Then, I added another line of tape. Be sure once your tape is applied to push hard along the edges for a crisp clean line.
Next, gently remove the metal top to keep it clean and for ease while adding glue + glitter. Then, apply a generous layer of Martha Stewart Crafts Glitter Glue to the entire ornament.
Once the entire ornament is coated with glitter glue, hold over a paper plate or another container and start sprinkling on the glitter. Do not be afraid to nearly empty an entire glitter container on one ornament. After the ornament is sufficiently covered, set aside to dry and pour all remaining glitter back into container.
Allow for adequate dry time.
Once the glitter and glue have dried, it’s time to remove your tape. I noticed in a few spots the glitter started to pull up when I was removing the tape. So, I went around the tape quickly with an x-acto knife to score the glue and the remainder of my lines were perfectly straight.
I love the glimmer these colorful ornaments now have.
