In the midst of the busy holidays, it’s always nice to take a crafty time-out . . . and if your craft time produces cute ornaments that can be used as gifts or even gift toppers, all the better!

These glitter handmade ornaments also do really well at craft fairs and there are so many ways to customize these cuties. Let’s get started!

Mod Podge Gloss
Glass Ornaments
Extra Fine Glitter
Foam Brush or Paint Brush

Step 1: First, you’ll want to take your Mod Podge, pour a little bit onto a piece of parchment paper or foil, and create your design on your ornament. I did simple dots, as well as free-form lines. Just don’t let this step take too long–Mod Podge dries fast!

Step 2: Gently sprinkle your glitter all over the painted parts of your ornament. Let dry.

Step 3: Once dry, use a dry foam brush to gently remove the excess glitter. You may have to go back and touch up some spots (I know I did!)
