Sparkling Ornaments DIY

I'm super excited about this simple sparkling ornaments DIY!  I've been playing around with Tulip's new flexible stencils lately, and it occurred to me that they might be really fun on Christmas ornaments.  I collect the old Shiny Brite ornaments, and what I love best about them is the glittered accents.  You can use the Tulip Body glitter and adhesive for this, it works beautifully!  Add a little maribou inside and you have a sparkling, glamorous accent for your tree in a few simple steps. I had some tinsel ribbon in the studio, and it tied everything together perfectly. (Pun intended.)  Here's how you can make some Sparkling Ornaments of your own.  
 You will need:
Clear glass or plastic ornaments
Tinsel Trim
Maribou Trim
Tulip Funky Alphabet Stencil Set with Bubble and Star Stencils
 Step one: Place stencil on center of ornament.  Make sure you rub it down with your finger tips so there aren't any air pockets.  Step two: Dab the adhesive on the stencil.  Step three: Dab the glitter on the adhesive.  Step four: Peel and reveal.  If there is any adhesive seepage, use a wet cotton swab to clean it up.  Step five: Remove cap from ornament and fill with maribou trim.  Replace cap and add a tinsel bow and hanger.  That's it!  Now sip some egg nog and admire your sparkling tree!
Tulip body glitter comes in a rainbow of colors and you can find feather trim to coordinate if you want a more colorful version of this project.  We would LOVE to see your version of these, join the crafty conversation on Facebook!
