- Clear Plastic Ornament

- Silicone liner
- Font used (Magnolia Sky from dafont.com)
Remove the cover of the ornament.
Put a good amount of polycrylic inside the ornament – if you put too much, no biggie.
Next, turn/swirl the ornament around – ensure that you are covering the entire inside of the ornament.
Turn over the ornament and drain the excess polycrylic on a silicone liner/cups or paper cup, it’s up to you.
Open the lenses from the package.
Twist to remove the lenses from the clip itself.
Grab the funnel and insert it inside the ornament.
Pour glitter inside the ornament.
Turn/swirl the ornament around – ensure that you are getting a good coverage on the ornament..
Turn/swirl the ornament around – ensure that you are covering the entire inside of the ornament.
Tip: You can also grab a piece of paper or paper towel to cover the top of the ornament and give it a good shake.
Next, pour the excess glitter back in the bottle.
To put back the top cover of the ornament, just pull the wire up this way and hold it.
This will prevent you from scratching the sides of the ornament.
Then place it to cover the ornament and let go of the wire. Try not to move it.
Now take the lens – clean it if you need to.
Put a dab of E6000 or hot glue on the lens.
Then place it at the center of the ornament.
I used an Oracal 651 permanent vinyl as a decal for the ornament, which the text image was already cut by my Cricut machine.
I’ve already weeded the decal, so just place a transfer tape on top of the vinyl.
Gently remove the backing of the vinyl
Tip: Since I am working with a round shape – I am going to snip the transfer tape to make slits all around. This will help you place the vinyl better on these types of projects.
Place the vinyl onto the ornament – and I prefer to use my finger tips to rub the vinyl onto the ornament. I also use my nails if needed for the thinner parts of vinyl.
Then gently remove the transfer tape.
And that’s it!
I know it may seem like a lot of steps, but this is really easy to make. It’s time consuming, but I appreciate the process of it and I really enjoyed making them. I am happy how everything turned out, but let me know what you guys think of this project. And I hope that you all enjoy making this, your kids will love it! Happy Glittering!
