Glitter Christmas Ornaments

Got this idea from Pinterest, these are glitter ornaments I made and the best part of them is the glitter is on the inside so it doesn't get all over the house. To make buy clear ornaments at the craft store, take the cap off the ornament, use pledge clear floor cleaner and squirt inside ornament. Carefully cover the inside of the ornament with the cleaner, not shaking, just rolling inside to not cause bubbles. Once entire ornament is covered pour any leftover liquid back into the pledge bottle. If you have any bubbles in the ornament, use a toothpick or bamboo skewer and pop any bubbles. Using a funnel (I made my own with scrap paper) poor glitter inside ornament and hold your finger over the top hole of the ornament and shake glitter around entire ornament. Once the entire ornament is covered with glitter pour remaining glitter back in glitter container. For glitter I used martha stewart glitter (got it at michaels with a coupon) and can't wait to get some more colors to make more of these. They are so easy and addictive to make.
