How to Make Christmas Ornaments with the Glitter Inside

  1. Gather your supplies.

  2. Cover your work area with plastic or wax paper.

    The floor polish will stick to whatever it lands on and can ruin furniture and paint.

  3. Remove the tops of the ornaments and set aside.

  4. Pour floor polish into the ornament.

    A little goes a long way, so pour just a little bit inside. Place your thumb or finger on the top and swish it around. Pour excess polish into a bowl or back into the floor polish container.

  5. Pour glitter into the ornament.

    A little goes a long way again, and you can use the funnel to make sure the glitter doesn't spill.

  6. Shake well and remove excess glitter.

    Place your finger or thumb on the opening of the ornament and shake well, making sure the glitter coats the entire inner surface. Shake out excess glitter into a bowl or other container.

  7. Replace top of ornament.

  8. Hang on your tree using a hook, string or ribbon.
