Christmas Ornaments

I watched a video last Christmas at Obsessed With Scrapbooking http://www.youtube.com/user/Obsessedwithscrappin#p/u/33/lTvq2GPkm9U  and I knew I wanted to make some of these myself.  So as soon as the Christmas things came out at Michael's I bought 3 packages of the clear glass ornaments.  I finally got around to making them yesterday and they were so easy and turned out beautiful.  All you have to do is pour Pledge floor polish in the ornament, swirl it around to make sure it is all covered.  Pour out the excess polish, pour in the glitter (I used Martha Stewart, I love all the colours) and cover the hole and shake it to cover completely, pour out any excess.
I then cut out the names from white vinyl using Winter Woodlands for the font and snowflakes.

Kerry these look lovely! I too bought some ornaments the other day to play with the kids and do this. But I watched a video where you can use hair spray inside instead of pledge!

I did this last year only for all the grandchildren but used cricutfont and figures as stencils and filled them in with contrasting glitter...absolutely beautiful.

These are soooo cool and sound pretty easy, although I've never used vinyl. Do they sell sheets of vinyl in places like Michael's and Hobby Lobby? I'll have to look next time. Thanks for posting...I found you via the Tis the Season blog hop. I saw glitter and was mesmerized! :) LOL....Happy Holidays. I'll probably hop back tomorrow!

These are lovely Kerry.... I bought a box of 6, two weeks ago. I will try the Pledge. I want to glue small coloured buttons on the outsides.
