Step by Step Instructions

Step 1: Use a paper cup to add water and Mod Podge.

Tip: Add Mod Podge First, and slowly add just enough water to make it runny. This will help spread the Mod Podge into the ornaments.

Step 2: Remove the ornament cap, and slowly pour Mod Podge into the ornament.

Step 3: Swirl the ornament around to cover the entire ornament.

Tip: Pour out extra Mod Podge back into the paper cup.

Step 4: Add glitter straight down and swirl ornament to get every inch.

Tip: Add a lot of glitter to make it a solid color, or add a little glitter to make it transparent.

Step 5: Pour out extra glitter back into the glitter container.

Step 6: Finally, let it dry and put the ornament cap back on.
