Sparkly Ornaments for Kids to Make

Thursday, December 17, 2009

Kids of all ages! I had fun working on these, myself. Even so, they are simple enough for kids to make.

You need:
  • Big & Glitzy Glitter Glue: whatever colors you like
  • blank stencil material (or any kind of clear plastic)
  • dimensional fabric paint: silver metallic (gold would be pretty, too)
  • Sparkle gems: colors and shapes of your choice
  • scissors
  • wire or ornament hangers

  • these patterns...or draw your just need simple line drawings. Print them out and make them any size on your copy machine.

Try this:
1. Lay the patterns under the stencil blank. Using dimensional paint, trace the lines of the patterns on the plastic. Let dry.

2. Fill the shape with Big & Glitzy. The thicker the glitter glue, the more sparkle when dry.

3. Set gems into Big & Glitzy while wet.

4. When Big & Glitzy is dry, cut shapes out.

5. Use a small hole punch or a small nail to make a hole at the top of each ornament. Use a piece of wire or an ornament hanger to hang the ornament on the tree.

Wouldn't it be gorgeous to hang a bunch of snowflakes in the window? Make some silver, some blue and some white. They can stay up until spring.

Glitter on Kids!
