If you are looking for high impact ornaments with almost no effort, this quick tutorial is for you. These sparkle filled ornaments use two supplies from the dollar store, but you could replicate the technique with other materials. The basic concept is: fill a clear plastic ornament with something small and sparkly. Couldn’t be easier!
I am thrilled to be one of the hosts for this month’s round of Craft Lightning! Thirty-nine bloggers will be sharing lightning fast holiday projects, while Angie, Carolina and I each add five of our own new tutorials. Check out all the projects from Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3!
Watch my short video tutorial to see how to make these beautiful ornaments. I usually share two new videos on my YouTube channel each week, but this week is special. I will be sharing a brand new video tutorial every weekday this week! If you aren’t subscribed to my channel, please hop over and click subscribe!
I found metallic mylar vase filler to fill these ornaments, but I think you could also use seed beads, sequins, confetti, or large glitter and have beautiful results.
