Sparkling Gem Ornament

This craft is fun to make and is also wonderful to give as an inexpensive Christmas gift. I wouldn't recommend doing this with younger children unless you buy plastic ornaments. 
Items you need:
  • Clear Glass Ball Ornament
  • Glitter Glue
  • Flat back acrylic jewel adornments
 Step 1:
Begin this jeweled ornament by removing the top covering to the ornament and set it aside.  
Next, paint dots of glitter glue sporadically around the ornament.

Step 2:
Place a jewel on top of each dot of glue.  Allow to dry well.

Step 3:
Trace an outline around each gem with some glitter glue, and allow the ornament to dry well.  The ornament is now ready for the tree or to give away as a handmade gift from the heart.

If you decide to make these awesome ornaments I would LOVE to see pictures!

  1. BEAUTIFUL! I used to do a lot of crafting and thought that once I retired I would do a lot more. Strange thing, though, since I retired I haven't done ONE thing. Wonder what that means???
