Extreme Glitter Sponged Ornamnet

Hi everyone this post will be short and sweet. I promise. I had so much fun sponge painting on my last ornament that I decided to play with just the Extreme Glitter Paint by Plaid on an ornament. I love the effect it produces and just wish I could have gotten a better picture to really show the beauty. I used both the red and the hologram. The paints may seem a bit spendy but believe me a little bit goes a long way. I usually buy mine with a coupon at Michaels but Amazon also carries them with free shipping with a $35 order. Here is my ornament complete with a image on it.
I wish I would have printed my image a little darker and more vivid. Still on the whole I'm pleased with how it turned out.
I decided to take a picture holding it in front of a light so you can see how translucent it is. Also some of the Martha Stewart coarse glitter that I sprinkled on the image while still wet from the Mod Podge shows up in this photo.

I glued the image I had printed and cut in a circle on the ornament with white glue. Then coated it with two coats of Mod Podge. I love how snowy it looks with the addition of some glitter.

I debated about whether to use white or red Recollection Adhesive lace and decided to go with the red. I don't think this lace is still made as I bought this on clearance a few years back. The ribbon I found at a Big Lots store several years ago just after Christmas. As I've said before I'm trying to use up what I have in my stash before buying more stuff.

Ideas I had while doing this ornament is the Extreme Glitter Paint because it is translucent would be wonderful to use on a glass candle holder. The other idea is that you could run narrow lace through an adhesive machine like the Xyron. and make your own adhesive lace.

I'm excited as today my Silhouette Stamping kit is suppose to be here. I can't wait to get my hands on it and play.

Thank you for stopping by and do come back. Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!


  1. Extreme glitter paint... who knew? Love that you are always experimenting! Nothing better than handmade ornaments... I still have some that my grandmother made and they are among my favorite keepsakes.

  2. Ooooo so pretty. You did a great job on the ornaments.
    Man you tie a perfect bow. How do you do that?
    I gave all my Christmas decorations to my oldest granddaughter who starts thinking Christmas in October. She will get more use from them than I will.

  3. Oh WOW Myoriah... This is FANTASTIC. I may have to "take a page out of your book" on this one... LOL! Thanks for showing us how you did this.

  4. Oh my goodness, I'm drooling (am I allowed? LOL). The work that went into the ornament. Absolutely breath-taking my friend.
