WOW. What a fantastic idea! Maybe I will start one now with the goal of being done by Christmas 2014. Smiley

I still make some of these every year. Smiley Recently I've been making them in team colors for fans of various sports teams.

Awesome. Do you spray the paint in with squirt bottles or...?

I just decorated the tree last night, but I'm short a strand of lights! As soon as it's properly lit, I'll post a photo.

Yes, I'd like to see how it goes with the kids, too!

Thanks everyone!

lilibet, I wonder if a glue/water combo would work? It might take a long time to dry, too, but would probably be better for kids. I think the plastic ornaments would work fine.

My favorites are the ones made with all the mixed-up colors that were left at the end. They're almost gaudy, but then that's probably why I like them Smiley

I know, I know, but what do you call these other than glitter balls?

The glitter's on the inside, so they look nice and don't make a mess!

All you need is:
-clear glass ornaments
-adhesive spray glue

Take the hanger top off the ornament.
Hold the glue nozzle up to the opening and spray. Spray enough so there's a little liquid collecting in the ornament. Rotate the ornament to coat the inside.
Sprinkle glitter through the opening, via a funnel or a folded piece of paper. You can put one color on some sections, then pour another color in and rotate to coat the inside.
Let dry, then put the hanger back in!

Hope you enjoy my glitter balls Smiley
