This would also be a GREAT project to do with kids, for an awesome handmade Christmas gift idea, because they are so quick and easy. These would make excellent teacher gifts or you can add them to a gift basket for an extra special touch. And the best part? The glitter is inside the ornament, so you can admire them all you want without sparkly glitter coating you from head to toe yourself. Mess free glitter ornaments are easy to make yourself!
The process is very simple and you can get the materials fairly cheaply. I chose to use plastic ornaments but glass ones would work just as well. It is all about what you prefer. Glitter ornaments allow you to match your Christmas decor perfectly without hunting and searching stores. So get creative and make them fit your home! You can add chunky glitter, colored glue, little confetti snowflakes, etc. These glitter ornaments can be customized any way you like!
Mess Free Glitter Ornaments
- Plastic ornaments (you can use glass but I don’t like to when working with small kids)
- Clear glue
- Confetti or other small pieces you like
The plastic ornaments I used open in half making this very easy. You can get them here.
- Open ornaments

- Pour in glitter
- Close ornament and shake
Have you ever had trouble finding the exact ornaments you want? Or love glitter ornaments but not the mess of the glitter on EVERYTHING? My husband hates glitter but he didn’t complain about these! These glitter ornaments are perfect for you! You choose the colors and the glitter is on the inside eliminating the mess. You can add stickers or other embellishments to the outside without fear of ruining the glitter.
How did you customize your glitter ornaments? I would love to see soem of your creations in the comments!
