DIY Glass Glitter Ornaments Using a Silhouette Machine


Ok so I am now addicted to making these glass glitter ornaments and will be going to the store to get more glass ornaments very soon.  I absolutely LOVE how they turned out and have so many more ideas for more.  I am going to do each family member’s name next !!! I am really getting so much use out of my Silhouette Machine

For the Nativity Ornament you will need:


  1. Remove the metal top of the ornament and set aside
  2. Pour a small amount of floor finish into the ornament and swish it around to coat all sides
  3. Pour excess back into the bottle and turn upside down until all excess has dripped out (I only wait about 5 min)
  4. Pour fine glitter into ornament using a funnel.  Make sure you coat all sides of the ornament and pour out excess.
  5. Place the metal lid back on (being careful not to scratch off the glitter with the metal prongs)
  6. Now, go into the Silhouette online store and download design #52457.
  7. Bring in the design into the studio and shrink it down to about 2.5 by 2.5 inches
  8. Cut your vinyl and peel off extra unwanted pieces
  9. Lay on your transfer paper
  10. Center the design onto the ornament and press down (You may need to manually move some of the pieces that don’t lay down flat due to the ornament being round/oval.

These are just so much fun to make and would make great gifts for teachers, family and friends !!! The possibilities are endless.
