Glittered baubles

I have been busy making lots of these fun glittered baubles to match my living room where they will hang on an LED lit white paper tree. And yes, my living room has one lime green feature wall!

I simply used watered down PVA glue, swirled it around inside the plain glass baubles, turned upside down to drain the excess glue and then added the glitter. You have to be VERY patient and let them dry over several days but gradually they will lose their cloudy look and turn very sparkly.

I used Doodlebug's Sugar Coating Chunky glitter as it caught the light better than fine glitter - I think they will look fabulous under the LED lights!

  1. They're fabulous, Penny. I love the beautiful big bows and the lime looks delicious!:)

  2. What a fun project Penny! Sticking the glitter on the inside is such an inspired idea :) I'm sure they will twinkle and glow so well near the lights.
