Here are the glitter ornaments that I made for Christmas presents. I first heard about making these ornaments on the Cricut message board and found various instructional videos on different blogs. They are very easy to make. The biggest problem I had was trying to find clear glass ornaments right before Christmas. Michael's is the only store in my area that even carries them and they were sold out of the round ornaments so I ended up getting these pretty shaped ones and they worked out fine. To make these, you just swish some floor cleaner (I used Pledge Future Shine which I found at Walmart), remove the excess, then you use a generous amount of glitter (I used Martha Stewart's fine glitter) and shake it throughout the ornament until it is fully covered. You can also remove any excess glitter. That's it! You can also decorate with rub-ons, stickers or Cricut vinyl shapes, letters, etc. but I kept mine pretty plain and just added some ribbon to each. They were easy and fun to make and they were great for gifts!
