Glitter Snowflake Ornament Project

Rescue those ugly ornaments from the clearance bins! I found these rather “blah” snowflake ornaments at the dollar store. They seemed to be saying, “please cover me in glitter and make me pretty!” Ironically they look better photographed than they do in person. The “before” photo below does not portray an accurate “ho-hum” ugly look.

Snowflake ornament before the glitter treatmentI decided to glitter the snowflakes with some glitter from the Art Institute Glitter line. I love their glitter and their glitter glue named “Designer Dries Clear” adhesive.

Glittered snowflake ornaments with Art GlitterI used a small, old paintbrush to brush the adhesive on in sections. Then I used a glittering spoon to sprinkle the respective glitter colors onto the snowflakes.

I also used Shiney Si on the snowflake shown below and T-Bird ultrafine pearlescent color.

Happy glittering! Hope you enjoyed the snowflake project!
