Beautiful, Easy, Ornament and Freebie

Looking for that last minute gift for a friend or relative, or perhaps something for the kiddos to make and take?  Look no further.  My daughter made these beautiful ornaments with my three grandchildren and they are beautiful, inexpensive, and easy.  What more could you want?

Mop n GLow
Glitter (the finer the better)
Completely clear glass bulbs.  Important that they do not have a rainbow or opaque coloring to them.
Paper bowl

Steps  1:
Pull cap off blub.
Add mop and glow and coat inside REALLY well by shaking bulb up and down. (no specific amount).  Make sure the mop n glow coats the neck of the bulb as well.  We placed a paper towel over the top to catch the cleaner as we were shaking.

Step 2:
Pour out the cleaner into a bowl.
Working quickly, (before cleaner dries) use a funnel to pour in the glitter.  Using a GOOD amount of glitter (don't be stingy on the glitter, needs a lot).  Shake it up and down.  We used our finger to cover the hole, or you can use a paper towel again.

Step 3:
We let them dry a bit and then replaced the cap.
Add a pretty ribbon at the top.

Aren't these darling. They did such a great job.   My daughter is SO creative! (Sorry, I just had to brag).

Here they are all dressed up and ready to give away. 

I am attaching a freebie "How To Make An Ornament Sheet" in the event you make them with your students.
