In this blog, I will give you quick instructions on making clear plastic ornaments to glitter ornaments. This craft is a quick and easy craft you and your family can do as a group. Below you will find a list of supplies, step-by-step instructions, and images. Also, if you have a Cricut Machine, you can personalize the ornaments with vinyl.

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.
