Easy Ornament DIY

Ever have an interest in making your own ornaments? They are super easy and can be easily within a budget! 

Here is what you'll need:
-Mop & Glo (some people use poly acrylic)
-Funnel (not pictured)
-Glitter (colors of your choice- Hobby Lobby has a great selection, but I have also purchased from Walmart)
-Clear ornaments (Hobby Lobby is where I find the cube ones, many people use the rounded ones, it is all preference. I have found applying the vinyl is super easy with the flatter surface)
-Vinyl/Silhouette Machine (optional- if you don't have this item then you can always buy pretty stickers!)

So here is how easy it is!
1. Open the top of the ornaments
2. Pour some Mop & Glo in (I eyeball the amount every time-but you don't want a ton)
3. Put your finger over the ornament opening and swish the Mop & Glo around really well to cover all of the inside of the ornament
4. If you have extra liquid you can pour it out
5. Use the funnel to pour your glitter into the ornament (you'll want enough to cover all of the inside of the ornament without any bare spots so you may need to play around with the amount for yourself)
5. Shake it all around really well
6. If you see any bare spots you can add more if needed
7. Let it dry over night 

Now if you have a vinyl machine then you can measure and cut your choice of decoration for the outside as I did, if you don't you can always use sharpies to decorate and get creative. I have also used pretty stickers as well! 

See how easy?! Now go make some ornaments! 
Hobby Lobby had a 6 pack of the clear ornaments on sale this week for 66% off of $6!! You can't beat that! So I stocked up for next year! 

Hope you have a BLESSED week!!
