how to make no mess glitter Halloween ornaments

glitter Halloween ornaments

Remember the blog post I wrote last year about how to make glitter ornaments? (They are awesome because the glitter is INSIDE the glass, so no mess!) Well, I made some in Halloween colors today…it only took me about 20 minutes to make a bunch. I’m going to put them in a clear glass vase on my table when it gets a little closer to Halloween time. :)

I could make zillions of these things…they’re so easy!

    What’s the best way to get the glitter into the ornament? Do you have a funnel or do you just dump it in or ?????

      I do use a funnel now, but before I had one, I would pour a little glitter onto a piece of paper that I had folded in half and then re-opened first, and then use the crease of the paper to get the glitter into the ornament. But, the funnel is definitely easiest! :D

      I use a small funnel from the three at the dollar tree, when u buy them u get 3 of different sizes the small is perfect for this…. (or I get a very small bottle and just dump it in from that)

    I really like this idea. I’ve been wanting some new Christmas ornaments. I might need to make my own.
    thanks for sharing

    So easy!!–I made a dozen of them with pumpkin colored glitter from Hobby Lobby–bought the glass ornaments at Michaels–They look great on my fall tree!! Thanks for passing on the “how to do” !!

    Judging by the Elvis pic in the glitter ornaments how-to, I’m guessing you’re a fan–have you seen the new USPS postage stamps of a young Elvis? Gorgeous!

      I have not seen it, but now I will make sure to go look! I do LOVE Elvis. :D Thank you!

    Can’t wait to try this. I picked up the Pledge and the glitter last week.

    Hi, I’m a big fan of your site and of ornaments in general.

    I hope you don’t mind, but I have a couple questions:

    I was wondering if using plastic ornaments would also work for this kind of project, if clear ornaments of any sort are sold year-round and if you could also use smaller sized ornaments (small, medium, etc.)?

    Staci, I love and appreciate all your “How to” instructions. I do have a question, do you have any suggestions on how to recycle ornaments that have spots on them from being stored in a shed? I think it is mold. These are ornaments I bought before I knew about you and I hate to throw them away.
