Solid Glitter Ornament

This one is super easy but sparkles just the same. For this ornament, start off by removing the hook from the top.

Then fill the inside with the glitter adhesive. Pour the glitter color of your choice inside the ornament and roll around until the entire inside is covered.

Once its covered, put the hook back on top.

Ombre Glitter Ornament

First we have the ombre glitter ornament. Ombre is such a huge trend from hair to make up and now crafts, we couldnt resist!

Take the plastic ornament and remove the hook. Then apply the adhesive to the entire inside of the ornament.

Take one of the glitter colors and pour it inside the ornament. Roll it around until it covers the bottom half of the ornament.

Next take another color, either lighter or darker, and pour it in the ornament. Try to keep it towards the top half of the ornament. Again, roll it around until the ornament is covered.

Place the hook back in and now you have an ombre glitter ornament.
