So, of course, I started something new.
I went to Michael's in search of wooden laser-cut ornaments and glitter. I have lots of glitter, but I really love the Recollections brand of glitter that I can only find at Michael's, which is located about forty minutes away (they have some of the most vibrant colors in glitter that I have ever found). But it was okay, because I was itching to go for a ride.
**Just an FYI--you should be able to get the die cut ornaments at most local chain craft stores: JoAnn, Hobby Lobby, Michael's, etc. for around $2 each.**
It's a really simple project--just paint on the glue with a paintbrush and apply the colors one at a time. The different colors of glitter won't stick to each other unless the glue is still wet. Spray them with clear sealer once they're done, and you have a simple project with a huge WOW factor! String jute rope or pretty ribbon through the top to create a hanging ornament.
Here's what I have so far:

These are going to look GREAT on the Christmas tree in a few months. It might take me that long to get the rest of the die cuts glittered. I hope I've inspired you!
