Sparkly Glitter Ornaments


Some years back, my sister and I bought a bunch of old glass ornaments at Four Paws thrift shop. I had always wanted to glitter some and the time was finally right. You know… so many projects, so little time!


We covered them in glue, then sprinkled different colors and sizes of glitter over them. Of course, my fingers were also glued and glittered by the time we finished!


During Christmas, I bring them out and place them in a glass bowl to display.

Unfortunately Four Paws, where I had purchased the ornaments, is no longer in business. It was a great thrift shop that benefitted the local humane society and had tons of inexpensive goods. It was so much fun to treasure hunt there, especially for any holiday. I had even purchased my very favorite garden fairy skirt there. Well, I still have my flea market and garage sales, even if Four Paws is just a (very pleasant)memory.

Such beautiful glittery colors. I made a fairy wand for a friend at school and the glitter was just all over the place so I tend to not use it very much. Maybe I have Jodie tendencies in that regard. HA! I love the way it looks -- and I know your ornaments in the bowl are gorgeous. Too bad Four Paws went out of business. Wishing you a lovely day and much happiness always. Tammy
