I am a sucker for adorable ornaments. Especially when they are colorful and covered in glitter. Learn how to make these easy peasy DIY glitter popsicle ornaments for your tree, because every tree for SURE needs some popsicles on it (and more glitter). ALSO, I got to be a part of an ornament swap with some other fabulous bloggers, which is kind of my most favorite idea. 1. Because it’s fun to share things I make with others. and 2. Because I LOVE getting fun handmade stuff from other talented ladies. Check out all those involved at the end of the post!
–Jewelry Eye Pins
-Roll out the clay and cut out popsicle shape. I just freehanded mine, but you can cut a paper template before. Make sure they are thick so that the popsicle stick doesn’t mess up the shape.
-Take a popsicle stick and snap it in half.
-Stick it in the half popsicle stick bottom.
-Take an eye pin and stick it in the top.
-Bake popsicles with sticks and eye hooks for 15 min at 275 degrees. The sticks won’t burn because the temp is too low and they aren’t in there for too long.
-Let cool. Then paint with acrylic paint. Let dry
-Cover in mod podge and pour on the glitter. Then put another layer of mod podge on top to keep the glitter from shedding everywhere.
-Then hang on tree :)
