Purchase inexpensive clear round ornaments. Spray ball with glue adhesive and then roll in silver or iridescent glitter until coated. Gently shake off excess glitter. Hang the ornament until thoroughly dry.
You can also make these ornaments using colored glitter in festive colors.
We also suggest adding color to the inside. Gently push ribbon or tissue paper into the ornament before decorating, so you can see how well the color shines through as you add glitter. Add matching ribbon (or the same ribbon you placed inside) for the ornament to be hung from. Just be sure not to add too much weight to the ornament, as you don’t want to make it to heavy to hang properly.
Other ideas include adding a photo to the inside (carefully roll to place inside, then use something like a bamboo skewer to unroll if needed. Then only add glitter to the back half of the ornament, allowing the photo to shine through.
