Ok, I know Christmas is over BUT since I decided to take a break when I should have been posting all this...anyway, you get to see them now! :)
A little back story...years ago, Mom and I decided to try and make glitter ornaments...it was a DISASTER!!!! It gooped all up inside the ornaments, it looked horrible! We tried a couple of different ways but no luck! I just thought we would never make glitter ornaments..EVER!! Fast forward to this Christmas season and I kept seeing on FB this one lady making tons of glitter ornaments! She would say "ok gotta get off here and make some more" then like 20 min later she pop back on and have pics of all these ornaments she had made!! I was like WHAT???? How in the heck was she doing them so beautiful and SO FAST!! So I messaged her and she told me how she made them...now I had heard of this before but didn't realize how easy & fast they were to make! She used Future (or Pledge) floor wax!! (I know you're saying oh this is old news, but stick with me here...I do have a tip on how I did mine!!)
Now I had heard you can't buy Future floor wax anymore but that the Pledge was the same and it could be found at WalMart so I bundled up (of course it was cold & rainy!!) made Travis go with me to WalMart and lo and behold...NO PLEDGE FLOOR WAX!!! =/ They did have some other brand that cost $6.00 so I thought "oh well! why not!" So we get out to the car and I said let's try Big Lots! They always have older products so they might have Future or even the Pledge!! Well I guess the bigwigs at Big Lots think no one cleans their floors because there wasn't even any floor cleaner there! Crazy!!! Well Dollar Tree is right next door so I thought "what the heck? it couldn't hurt to look"! And there, like a shining light calling my name was floor wax for ONE DOLLAR!!! I snatched it up and grabbed all my supplies to go to our friends house for some dinner...
And here is our results! I found some neon glitter at Hobby Lobby for $4.99 (and of course 40% off w/my coupon!) Holy schnikes! These are SO easy and SO much fun to make!! I think we made almost 50 ornaments that night!!
And with the extra ornaments....I decorated my new PURPLE tree!!
***I have received a few questions on the process of making these...I am so sorry I didn't include that! I thought I was the ONLY one who has never made them! LOL!! So just pour some floor wax in the ornament, swish around to coat inside, & drain. I just turned it upside down in the floor wax bottle. Pour some glitter in, swish around to coat & pour out extra glitter...and that's it!!! No drying time needed!! Click Here for the video I watched! Love this video. direct & to the point!! No chit-chat! :) ***
Well I didn't realize I could do a whole post on the glitter ornaments (I just LOVE them!!) so I will save the rest for next week! Don't forget to come back tomorrow for My Cricut CraftRoom's DT 100 cart blog hop!! Lots of projects and some blog candy too! You don't want to miss it!! :)
Until next time...
