- Clear bulb ornaments (I got a 6 pack for $2 at Michaels)
- Glitter (on hand or $1)
- Mod Podge (on hand or use watered down white glue in a pinch)
- Mod Podge Holiday Rub-Ons (on hand)
Step 1: Take the top off the bulb ornament
Step 2: Use a brush to paint some Mod Podge inside the bottom of the ornament.
(pretty much any formula Mod Podge will do. In a pinch, you could also use watered down white glue)
Step 3: Add some glitter
Shake it around to cover all of the Mod Podge. I used a mix of chunky glitter from the dollar store and fine glitter from the $1 section of Michaels.
Pro tip: Use a popsicle stick or funnel to scoop the glitter into the ornament without making a mess
Step 4: Cut out a rub-on and apply
Use the popsicle stick to rub hard over the word to apply it to the surface. When you're done, peel it off slowly to make sure the whole thing stuck. If needed, replace the film and continue rubbing until the full word is adhered.
Step 5: Set aside to dry
You can return the top right away if you're a anxious to hang them on the tree. They will dry faster, however, if you leave the top off. It may take up a full day (or more if you put the tops back on) for the white from the Mod Podge to disappear completely.
Keep repeating the process with different glitter colors until you have your own sparkly jewel toned ornament collection. I did a variety of small ones and then made a large one and added some blue and silver dollar store bells to the side for an embellishment.
