DIY Glitter Ornaments for Kids

DIY Glitter Ornament for Kids

Last week, we took the Wash Out for Kids Mod Podge for a spin and made these simple and pretty glitter ornaments. We had a lot of fun, and it was a quick and easy craft to do with the kids.

Supplies needed:


Clear plastic or glass ornaments, we tried both and each worked perfectly.
Wash Out for Kids Mod Podge
Disposable cup to hold ornament
Masking Tape (optional)

Here’s a step-by-step courtesy of my little guy, Max. His favorite color is yellow, so we used yellow glitter. My little girl Sadie made a pink one, but she was harder to catch on camera.

Step 1: Pour Mod Podge in ornament using funnel.

Step 2: Pour excess Mod Podge back into container and wash funnel.

Step 3: Pour a generous amount of glitter into the ornament.

Step 4: Cover top of ornament with finger, or seal with tape, and shake, shake, shake. Pour out excess glitter.

Step 5: Let dry upside down and overnight by placing in disposable cup.

  1. So cute Melissa! My daughter would LOVE the sparkly pink 🙂 I need to bust out our washable Mod Podge from an old campaign, I haven’t tried it yet! Preschool craft this week!

  2. So pretty, Melissa! I can’t wait to do crafts like this with my little one 🙂

  3. These are so cute AND easy! I can’t wait to make these with the little guy! 🙂

  4. Hi Melissa, I tried these with my daughter but they came out dull instead of shiny. Do you have any suggestions – too much mod podge, not enough glitter? Thanks, Penny

  5. I can’t seem to get mine to be even and what kind of mod podge is it the one i used is white and it shows in the ornament

  6. Hi Penny,

    I did this a few years ago (with floor wax instead of mod podge) and used multiple colors of glitter. I turn the ornament a bit so I could get it right on the side and the effect is gorgeous. 2 years later and they still look good. We used plastic and gave one to everyone we knew for under $1, they made great teacher/coach/volunteer gifts.
