Glitter Topped Christmas Ornaments


Glitter Topped Christmas Ornaments

This Christmas, add a little sparkle to your Christmas tree with Glitter Topped Christmas Ornaments. If you want to create your own DIY Christmas crafts this year, consider working on this quick and simple project. Be sure to add jingle bells and pretty ribbon to the top of your ornament for a more regal look. Crafts with glitter may seem daunting (and messy), but this ornament is actually a breeze. You only need a little bit of loose glitter to make an impact, so this project takes almost no time to clean up. Use a variety of colors to create an arsenal of seasonal ornaments.

Primary TechniquePainting




  • Jingle bells
  • Felt
  • Snowflake die cut
  • Crystal sprigs
  • White ribbon
  • String
  • Ornament
  • Posie
  • Silver ribbon
  • Can of Krylon paint



  1. Take top off of ornament, and spray the inside of ornament. Shake paint around and let it dry upside down to let any excess paint come out. Give it a second coat once dry.

  2. Spray silver jingle bells with Krylon paint. Since I had three different colors, I set up a spraying station outside and painted them in all 3 colors. Turn the bells and paint again. Keep turning until they are completely covered. Once painted and dry, tape off the ornament and "paint" glossy accents on the top half. Sprinkle it with silver glitter. 

  3. Tie white sheer ribbon to top of ornament. Use glue gun to glue crystal sprigs on an angle. Die cut snowflake and adhere to center of sprigs.

  4. Cut silver ribbon into thinner strips using fabric scissors. Fold in half. Thread two jingle bells with white string and tie around silver ribbon. Cut ends to desired length. Use glue gun to adhere to center of snowflake.

  5. Adhere posie to side of jingle bells.

This is a cute idea. It is a little bit messy, but the end result looks quite nice. It is something that you can decorate any way you like. You can personalize them for each member of your family, or just leave them as is. Now to find some clear balls for this!

These are very pretty. I am wondering if there is a method to make the inside be glittered? Could you take some diluted white liquid glue that is infused with glitter or snow glow effect and swirl that around inside? That way you would still get the sparkle without the mess once it is dry and the top replaced. These are very pretty as presented though and would make a very lovely gift! Thanks for sharing!

I am intrigued by this project. I like the idea of spray paint on the inside of the ornament. I bet I could use two colors and achieve a swirl affect. The pictures are great and really help me understand how the bells are made sparkly. I really appreciate the time it took to explain this project. I think it was done better than a few of the others I've seen here. I love it!

These look lovely, but the instructions seem to be incomplete. Is the glitter on top a type of paint, or has it been immersed in glue or paint and then dipped in sparkles?? Maybe I'm missing something. :(

Hi there, I have contacted the project designer and will update the project with more information when it is available. Thanks! - Julia from FaveCrafts
