Glitter Christmas Card Ornaments

I'm so excited to be participating in the 20 Days of Kid-Made Ornaments series hosted by  Mama Miss.

With Christmas only a couple of weeks away we have been spending lots of time creating fun holiday crafts! Today I'd like to share our glitter Christmas card ornaments. This is a great way to up-cycle those old or unused Christmas cards!

I had a stash of unused Christmas cards that was a variety pack so it had various card themes: a manger scene, Christmas decorated house, Christmas tree, etc.

First I cut around the cards to get rid of any empty space and punched a hole at the top. I did this ahead of time because my girls are young and it would be difficult for them to cut evenly but it would be a great task for an older child to help with.

Next is the fun glitter and glue part! This can get a bit messy especially when you have a glitter happy 3 year old helping out, but the girls loved creating with the glitter!

The girls used q-tips to spread glue wherever they wanted the glitter to show on the card. Once they were done with the glue they added the colored glitter to the ornament.

The more glitter the better so it's okay if they get a little crazy with the glitter! :) After they applied the glitter we shook off the access glitter and let them dry.

Once they dried we added the ribbon through the punched hole and there we had our new Christmas Glittery Ornaments!

They look great on the tree and not too difficult to make if you don't mind a little bit of a glittery mess!
