No Mess Glitter Ornament

I don’t do a lot of crafting with glitter during the rest of the year. But during the Holidays, I like to add some sparkle. But I don’t want that sparkle to hang around year-long. So I’ve a method for working with glitter that will keep the glitter from getting on every surface of my home from now until forever. You’ll love this No Mess Glitter Ornament technique!

This craft is the last of Craft Lightning Week. All week long I’ve been sharing fast, 15 minute Holiday crafts along with my co-hosts Jessica from Mad in Crafts and Angie from The Country Chic Cottage. And we’ve invited our crafty friends to join in! Check out all their great projects at the bottom of the page.

To make this No Mess Glitter Ornament, you’ll need:

Mix the glitter and Mod Podge together in the cup. Paint the mixture onto the ornament.
