DIY Chunky Glitter Glue Ornaments

Hello and Welcome! It's the first Wednesday of December and you know what that means - it's time for our monthly DIY Challenge hosted by Terrie @Decorate & More with Tip! In case you don't know about this DIY Challenge, on the 1st Wednesday of each month, a group of talented bloggers create something based on a theme or material that's selected by Terri! This month's theme is a Christmas Challenge - make anything pertaining to Christmas! How easy is that!
I love making my own Christmas tree ornaments each year! To my excitement this year, I got a purple flocked tree! I'm loving this tree - although I wish it was taller. 

It's only 4.5 feet tall and needs to sit on a table.  I wanted to do something different from my usual purple decorated white trees that I've done in the past like here, here, and here.  So I came up with the color theme of using rich purple and lavender hues. But finding different or unique purple ornaments in stores was quite elusive this year. This is not the year for purple ornaments! So I decided to make my own. And you won't believe what I used to make lots of handcrafted ornaments! Super Chunky Glitter Glue!

It's called Fairy Princess and doesn't it look gorgeous! Look at all those purple glitter tones! I found it at Hobby Lobby and bought all that they had from two stores - six bottles! That was more than enough to decorate thirty clear plastic ornaments. That's it! Nothing else was needed! Of course you'll need bamboo sticks and styrofoam to hold them while they dry - but that's a given.
Here's how:
I started with six large 3.27" clear plastic ornaments I had in my stash to see how they would look.  I didn't bother to clean or wipe the ornaments down first. They looked clean to me, lol!  I just started adding about an inch or more of the glitter glue along the middle of the ornament all the way around. 
As I was applying the glue, I began adding 'rays' or extensions of glue along each side. 
All I can say is have fun creating the design along the middle! You can make it as thick as you want! It doesn't have to be perfect!
See how the chunky glitter adds dimension and texture to the surface of the ornament? It's really a cool look and feel once it's dry.  
If you're satisfied with the glitter glue design, hang the ornaments up to dry. I used a rod to hang these ornaments over an empty plastic container.
Once these were dry, I loved the look so much that I bought a box of 24 smaller ornaments to make more!

And when I finished decorating them, used bamboo sticks stuck in packing styrofoam to hold them up while drying.

It took a good 24 hours for the glitter glue to dry!

Don't they look pretty on my purple flocked tree!

Oh, and you can check out how I made these lovely velvet wrapped ornaments here!
