Step 4: OVER THE PAPER, sprinkle glitter on the ornament, a little bit at a time.  Rotate the ball in order to move some of the loose glitter to uncovered areas before adding more glitter.

Step 5: Once covered, give ornament a gentle shake over the paper to remove loose glitter. Place marker in mug and allow ornament to dry for several hours.

    Oh my gosh. I can’t read this and not comment. I think I’ve had a magnetic attraction to glitter since I was ~7. I need to make these!

    YAY! This looks like fun! I’m allergic to glitter I think, but I don’t care! Glitter makes soooo many things purty!

    Can you get hodge podge glue at Walmart or do you have to get it special? And if you have to get it special can you share an alternative glue option I could use that I could get at Walmart?

    Thanks so much!
