Celebrate with sparkles!

Hello all!
Back with another challenge over at the fabulously fun Eclectic Ellapu and this week we're asking you to join in with our celebration with sparkle theme.  I decided to jump on board with one of the trends floating around Pinterest and many craft blogs at the moment and make some glitter filled ornaments.   I won't bore you with the details as there are a ton of tutorials out there for this but I used Pledge floor care (with wax), Martha Stewart glitter, my Silhouette Cameo, ribbon and some small Christmas decorations from Michaels.

 
 
      I personalised them for my nieces so that they can hang them on the Christmas tree when we visit them this Christmas (can't wait for that !).  These ornaments are ideal for the extremely houseproud amongst us because the glitter is all on the inside so no mess :)

 
Putting these in for the challenges at -
 
Thanks so much for popping in  - why not head over to see the fabulous sparkly celebration pieces from the rest of the pink DT at Eclectic Ellapu .

Very pretty! I've glittered the outside of well loved and worn ornaments to restore them, but never the inside of new ones. Might have to give this project a try. Thanks for the inspiration!
