Every year my family does a homemade Christmas Ornament Exchange. It is one of my favorite Christmas traditions . There are 8 families that participate, so each year we each make 8 of the same ornament and then exchange them. Every year I have 8 new Christmas ornaments that are made by my very favorite people. All of the ornaments become keepsakes and it is so much fun to pull them out every year.With my hubby’s help, I am going to share be sharing a tutorial with you on how to make these beautiful sparkly Christmas ornaments.

Begin by adding about 20 drops of the reinker to the inside of the glass ornament.
Gently roll the ink around until the entire inside of the ornament is well coated. DO NOT SHAKE, that will create bubbles in the ink so make sure you roll.
After the inside of the ornament is nicely covered then set upside to drain on top of a cup or jar.
Make a very simple funnel by rolling a small piece of scrap paper and pour a couple of tablespoons of super fine glitter into the ornament.
If you want to keep your fingers clean from ink, I suggest wearing a rubber glove here. Put a finger over the hole of the ornament and shake, shake, shake!
Dump out the excess glitter and you have a very pretty, sparkly ornament!
We had a lot of fun experimenting with different colored inks and glitters. The glitters would become a completely different color when put inside the different colored ornaments from the reinkers.
We even tried to make an ugly one with green ink and yellow glitter and it ended up being almost gold and very pretty. Probably one of my favorites! You can see it to the right in the next picture.
To hang the ornament tie a loop of 1/4″ ribbon to the cap of the ornament. I love how the twinkle lights from the tree bounced right off of them. So pretty!!
