Glitter Polka Dot Glass Ball Ornament

Today is Day 8 of 12 Days of Handmade Christmas Ornaments. That means we only have five days left (including today) of this crazy ornament party! I've got another simple one for you today: a gold polka dot glass ball ornament. I love the simplicity of today's ornament. It's festive without screaming I'M GLITTERY!! Look how shiny I am! if you know what I mean. It only took about 10 minutes to make too, which is a bonus if you're in the market for an easy handmade ornament.

The supplies you'll need are:

  • Glass ball ornament*
  • Glue dots
  • Gold glitter
Apparently I'm into alliteration today with my supplies list. Also, the red beads are for show - you don't actually need them for this project...don't let the photo confuse you :).

First step: add glue dots all randomly to the glass ball ornament.

Step 2: Add glitter onto the glue dots. Glitter can become a complete mess if you're not careful. It gets everywhere. To keep the mess to a minimum, I dip my fingertip in the glitter and press it onto the glue dots. I dip and press a couple of times to get good coverage.

That's it! Now I've got a pretty little (shiny!) ornament to hang on my tree!

Don't miss the other 11 ornaments from these lovely ladies below - there are so many good ones today!

  1. What a genius idea - glue dots!!! To make those perfect little circles!!! Love the simplicity of it all. And it certainly does not scream. Instead it simple states "I'm refined and I'm sophisticated ..."

The cheap ray bans birthday girl herself, who has also featured in a couple of episodes of TOWIE and is the sister of Elliott Wright, ray ban wayfarers online looked lovely in a bright orange mini dress.
