Pinned It and Did It

I know Christmas has come and gone, but I am just now getting around to posting this project that I did for Christmas.
So here is my belated Pinned It and Did It for this week.
I made glitter ornaments for a luncheon I had for my dear girlfriends over Christmas.
I used hairspray and fine glitter. 
 Do NOT use regular chunky glitter.
  It will not work.
I know this from personal experience.
Spray the hairspray (not aerosol) inside the glass balls and 
swirl around until coated as much as you desire.
  Let dry for about a day.
Put top back on glass ball after drying. 
I tied with a ribbon and wrote on mine with a silver sharpie.
If I did this again, 
I would use a paint pen instead.
I think it would show up better.
I put each ornament inside one of these bags that I also made
 and put a bag at each place setting.
This was my final look. 
 Super easy project and you could go crazy with the colors.
Thanks for bearing with my after Christmas, Christmas post.

What a cute project! It turned out wonderful and I like that you used a teal color instead of the typical red or green. What a sweet gift for your dinner party!
