Glitter Ornaments ~ FUN! FUN!

The pictures of these just don't do justice for what they really look like in person -- they are sooo sparkly and EASY to do! I have had a series of our friends' younger kids come out and make these with me over the past week as well - they have done an awesome job too - with just 3 easy steps anyone can make them!!

The above picture are bulbs I made for my co-workers - random fun colors.

The below colors are done using the current SU! In Colors -- they turned out awesome too!

These two I actually did with friends Harley bike colors in mind! Black and Red here - and then I added a little HD metal deco to the front --

Here is the tutorial I found last year that I knew I needed to save in my 'want to try' file ;o) I bought my glass ornaments last year at the after Christmas clearance sale and I also picked some up this week at Hobby Lobby for 50% off too!! Yeah! I love good deals!
These are just a blast to make - and anyone can do them! Just as Laura did in her tutorial I drained the ink out into a clear candle votive so I could see when the ink is done draining - but I did smash a baby wipe down in to the bottom of the votive to catch the excess ink and make it a bit easier to clean up. Also, I did start to save the excess glitter in baggies but the more I did I got a better feel for how much glitter I actually needed but if I did have extra glitter I would use it in the next ornament I made - as long as lighter colors went in lighter colors and darker colors went in darker colors.
Enjoy and have fun with this project ;o)

~TFL & Enjoy~
