Glitter-Dotted Christmas Ornament

Dress up a plain glass ornament with a sparkly sprinkling of glitter-filled dots and silvery dashes.

A simple motif of glittering polka dots turns ordinary glass ball ornaments into something special. Throw in a few free-form swipes of silver or gold, and you have the makings of a truly unique Christmas tree decoration.

Materials and Tools

  • Round, plain glass Christmas ornament
  • Crafts glue
  • Pencil with unused round eraser
  • Glitter in silver or gold
  • Paint marker pen in silver or gold


1. Using the photo as your inspiration, dab the round eraser end of a pencil in glue and dot glue randomly onto half of the round glass ornament. (To keep ornament steady, drape a small cloth over a small-mouthed glass, then nestle the ornament in the mouth of the glass.)

2. Sprinkle glitter onto glue. Let dry.

3. Use a paint marker pen to create random swishes and swirls as shown.

4. Repeat steps on opposite half of the ornament.
