Supplies needed to make your own glittered clear glass ornaments:

Attach your first bit of tape by removing ONE SIDE of the double sided tape and wrap around the cube once.

Then take off the other side of the tape before starting to criss-cross the tape.

Your cube will look like this:

Once you have a cube full of tape, it is time to break out the glitter!

Simply sprinkle extra fine glitter over the top of the clear glass ornaments, making sure to coat all areas of exposed tape.

For "thicker" glitter, you might need to pat the glitter onto the tape gently.

Glitter will cover both the tape and the "static-ey" glass ornament.

before rinsing

Simply blow the extra glitter off the glass gently and it will stay put on the tape!

Thanks Susan and Christi!! I am normally not a glitter person, but Christmas always makes me want to dump boatloads of it on everything I see!
