Hiya!  I am bought some clear ornaments to put the names of all the kids *both sides* in the family for the parents for Christmas.  I got one side down with purchased stickers.  However...........the other side has 5 kids and 9 grandkids. If I was to buy all those stickers, I would have tons left over. *Sorry I digress*.  My question is:  I bought the full sheet Avery shipping label sheets and was wondering if I was to print out the names and then use glue glitter to fill the pattern in, should I seal them somehow so the glitter doesnt rub/fall off? And if so..what kind of sealant?  I was thinking of filling them in with the glue glitter, sealing them, then cutting the letters out.  Does this sound like the right course of action??  I was going to paint the names on...but that didnt turn out to well *sigh*.  Thanks for your help!!

Are you going to use Stickles? I don't think you have to seal Stickles since it's more of an archival glitter glue. Stickles has a better adhesive base than regular glitter glue.

I know regular glitter glue is going to fade over time or just wear off.

I did check my resources for sealing glitter glue but nothing came up. I am a little tired too so I might have missed something.

Oh, I almost forgot Martha Stewart has just released glitter glue. Martha makes the most well made glitter in the market. I would check her glitter glue because I bet you don't have to seal it. I have seen it Michael's.

Martha Stewart also has a line of glitter pens that might be helpful too. I am not sure if they will go on glass. I haven't tried mine on glass yet. The glitter is very fine with these pens but a pretty effect.

Martha Stewart might carry a glue or sealant in her scrapbooking line. I can't think of any manufacturer's right now who might have a glitter sealant that would be safe for ornaments.

Last but not least. Crayola makes some great glitter glue for glass projects. This is if your ornaments are glass. If your ornaments are plastic I have a feeling the Crayola glitter glue would stick well. My DH has used glitter glue on glass. That glass project did not fade or chip for seven years. Lasted through an ice storm, a lot of sun, brutal heat and cold. My DH recently had to touch it up and it was a tiny part.

I hope I helped a little. I work with glitter a lot. I use a variety of glitter.

Yep they are glass ornaments.....but like other gift project ideas I have had, husby decided on a different gift idea...LOL.  I do very much appreciate your advice in case I decide to do something else of this nature.  I just had some *cheap* glitter glue on hand and thought I could use it somehow.

We went with food.........LOL!!!!

Merry Christmas to ya!!!  Grin
