DIY Glitter Ornaments:  The Grinch and Believe

Have you ever wondered if making those ornaments using glitter and Mop and Glow really work?  Well thanks to finding glitter in various colors I decided to give it a try and to my surprise in really does!

I purchased some clear plastic bulbs from Michael’s in a big pack with DIY in mind and once I found the green glitter at the dollar store it was decided how I was going to use them!  It really is easy and once you fill them you can decorate them in various ways!

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • Clear bulb ornament
  • Glitter green and red
  • Mop and Glow
  • Acrylic paint – black and yellow
  • Elmer’s glue
  • Fine tip art
  • Optional* silver plastic glue on jewel
  • Wire red and green ribbon

GRINCH:

  1. Fill ornament with Mop and Glow and swirl around the inside, pouring out excess.
  2. Fill with glitter and plug the end with your finger tip and shake until glitter covers the inside completely.  Add more if needed.
  3. Paint oval shaped yellow eyes.
  4. Once dried trace the eyes in black adding lashes and under eye bags.
  5. Add half open circles for his pupils.
  6. Draw his mouth, nose and wrinkles.
  7. Tie a bow with the green ribbon around the ornament caps loop.

BELIEVE:

  1. Complete steps 1 and 2 from the Grinch ornament using red glitter.
  2. Using Elmer’s glue write the word believe on the ornament and cover with glitter.
  3. Glue optional star as the dot over the i.
  4. Tie a bow with red ribbon around the ornament caps.

These are so cute and easy! I hope that you enjoyed this tutorial! Happy crafting and merry Christmas!
