Glitter Glue Ornaments Crafts

Christmas is at the corner and you must be planning different ways to dazzle your home. What can be the better option for this than the glitter glue ornaments? Glitter glue is the glue containing various glittering objects available in different colors. Glitter glue comes in two forms - one, containing the glitter and glue simultaneously and another in separate. In those cases where you buy them separately, you need to apply the glue first and then sprinkle the glitter on it. The most preferable among the glittering glue is the golden and silver ones. These glues easily stick to any object whether it is glass, fabric, nuts or pinecones and give an entirely new look to the object. It gives a stunning effect when it is mixed with other vibrant colors. Thinned-down water-soluble craft glue transforms myriad surfaces excellently. Glittering glue should be used selectively as too much of it make the thing look excessively decorated with no clarity and originality.

Glitter glue ornaments can be conveniently made at home with some readily available materials. Homemade ornaments are more impressive and convincing than the ones available in the market as they bear your artistic touch and are personalized in nature. The distinct thing about the craft is that it looks beautiful and is appealing in whatever form it is put. Even the kids will enjoy making the craft as this gives them innumerable scopes to show their creativity. These are easy to make Christmas crafts which are not only cost-effective but also richly decorative in nature.

How To Make Glitter Glue Ornaments

Glitter Glass Glue Ornament

Materials Required
  • Glass Ball ornament
  • Colorful ribbon
  • Glitter glue (preferably golden color)
  • Take a clear glass ball ornament. This is readily available in any of the craft shop. You can also use even used glass ball ornament. If you are using the old ones, make sure you clean it and dry it properly before use.
  • Remove the top metal cap of the ornament, one which is used to hang the ornament with. Squeeze the glitter glue entirely into the glass ball and shake it thoroughly by closing its mouth with your hand. Swirl the ornament till the glitter glue spreads uniformly in the bottle.
  • Allow it to dry completely. Once it is dried, invert the ornament on a paper to drain out any excess glitter. Now put small items like beads inside it to produce a ‘jingle' sound.
  • Put the metal top on the ornament and tie a ribbon at the metal top. Hang it from Christmas tree or any convenient place where it is distinctively visible.
Alternate Tips
  • You can put two or three colors of glitter at the same time in the glass ball. Close the top with finger or towel and rotate it slowly. The glitter will be distributed throughout the interior of the glass ball and you can see a marble effect created.
  • Instead of squeezing the glitter glue inside the glass ornament, you can also paint the exterior of the glass with the same. For this purpose, first brush a thin layer of glue over the entire surface of the ornament. If the glue is very thick, add little bit of water in it to thin it down.
Now, hold the ornament over a container filled with glitter. Use a spoon to sprinkle glitter on the glued ornament. Keep turning the glass ball as you apply the glitter. When the entire surface is covered with the glitter, tap off the excess glitter. Keep the entire arrangement on a sheet of craft paper and allow it to dry. Once dried, it is ready to be hung to improve the décor of the festival.

Glue Glitter Pinecones

Materials Required
  • Pinecone
  • Glue
  • Glitter
  • Craft Paper
  • Driller
  • Hook
  • Drill a hole in the top of each pinecone and attach a ½ inch hook to it.
  • Apply glue and glitter on the pinecone's surface. Take care that you do it in sections. Apply glue on one section and immediately apply the glitter on that section. Or else, if glue is applied on the entire section and then we go for sprinkling glitter, the glue will dry.
  • Tap off the excess glitter on a craft paper.
  • Turn the pinecone and repeat the process until the entire pinecone is glittered.
Glitter Bells

Materials Required
  • Glue
  • Glitters
  • Plastic food wrap
  • A cardboard
  • String
  • Tape for sticking
  • Attach the plastic food wrap on the cardboard using tape. Level it by moving your hands above it.
  • Draw the border of small bells on the food wrap with glue. Fill the entire bells with glue. Be careful that glue does not spread outside the outline.
  • Attach one end of a small string to the top end of the bell. This will serve to hang the bell.
  • Sprinkle glitter inside the bell over the glue. Repeat the process for making other bells on the same food wrap.
  • Allow it to dry for a day or two. After it is dried completely, carefully take out the plastic wrap from the back of the bells. Your bells are ready to be hung on doors or windows.
Alternate Tip
Other than bell, you can also draw a big star on the food wrap. Repeat the same process as above and hang your star at your front door or in your Christmas tree.
