SPARKLY ORNAMENTS WITH NO MESS
So two years ago, which translates to THREE Christmas seasons ago, I pinned this image of some ornaments I wanted to try to make. I liked this for several reasons:
a) they are Christmas balls
b) they are glittery
c) they promise to be no mess
d) they can be customized to ANY color I want
Finally, this year would be the year. I made the fantastic discovery that I had extra vacation days that I had to use before the end of the year, so I did what I have done very little of before. I dropped Mason off at the babysitter and got a ton of stuff done, including making myself some new ornaments.
I had picked up fillable ornaments at Michael's a few weeks back, and I had extra fine glitter on hand (left over from my wedding almost 6 years ago - ha!), so this project was very inexpensive for me. I wanted to use what I had to see how I liked it before buying new glitter. I basically followed the tutorial from Pinterest (here), and it was so easy! I'm definitely going to make more.
As you can see, I did green (which I have wanted for a long time - yay!) and copper. Now though, I CAN NOT WAIT to do more. And the color possibilities are endless. Pink! Yellow! Black! (But not all on the same tree...I'm not that crazy.)
What have you been doing to prepare your house for Christmas?
