3 Step Glitter “Let It Snow” Christmas Ornaments

Merry Christmas Darlings!

It’s only a few days to go and I am FINALLY making some last minute ornaments. Better late than never I guess….. Today I am sharing with you my “Let It Snow” DIY Ornament. I even made a nifty picture guide for my fellow visual peeps out there. I’m busy, you’re busy, it’s the holidays, and our time is precious so I’ll cut right to the chase.

3 Step Glitter “Let It Snow” Christmas Ornaments Guide
You will need:
  • 2 paper plates (for the glitter)
  • 1 paintbrush
  • 1 white glue
  • 1 plastic lid or scrap (for the glue)
  • 1 Ornament of your choice
  • Christmas songs playing in the background….they are great inspiration!

Step One:
Use good old grade-school glue to paint on the first word you want on your ornament. If you have any large letters or it’s a long word, you may want to break it into smaller sections.
Step Two:
Make it rain! Well, at least make it sprinkle! Shake the glitter out and onto the wet glue asap! You want to make it look like you are way overdoing the glitter for optimal shiny-ness and coverage. Now let it dry peacefully.
Step Three:
GENTLY brush off the excess glitter with a light brush or paper towel. Repeat steps if necessary to add more words. If not, decorate with a nice ribbon! IF you choose to decorate with super excessive glitter (which I’m not sure why you WOULDN’T! Or use Epson Salts as fake snow as seen below) you may want to consider finishing them off with a clear coat of spray paint gloss once everything is finished to lengthen the life of your ornament!
Here are some of the ones I’ve made so far in various stages. Updated pictures to come soon I hope! I will be using most of these as gift wrapping decorations for some of my packages for family and friends. It’s the little touches that matter!
