Create your own glamorous glittering Christmas ornaments this season to give as hostess gifts or to place on your tree. This craft is perfect for snow days or a girls holiday get together. So grab your glitter and let’s get to it!


  • Plain Ornaments
  • Craft Glue
  • Glitter in various colors
  • Dampers (to apply the glue)
  • Scrap Paper
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors

Starting off with a clean and dry ornament place on pre-folded piece of paper. Begin creating your design with the glue on the ornament with dampers or paint brush.  Begin to sprinkle glitter over the glue area. Be sure to keep away from the paper or other surface until the glue has dried. Tap to remove excess glitter.

If you are using two colors, let the first color dry over night before applying the glue pattern for the second color.

Once glue has dried and the glitter has attached it is time to add your ribbon. This can be decorative or functional to hang from your tree. Slide the ribbon through the top loop and tie it as a bow, or as a loop through.
