Ornaments are for more than just the tree -- you can use them to make a holiday wreath or a colorful garland, or use them as festive vase fillers. So there's really no such thing as having too many ornaments, which is why they're such a great homemade gift idea. Before, we showed you how to upgrade a plain ornament using permanent markers, and now we're turning our attention to glitter, the ultimate craft accessory! All you need to do is swirl a thin layer of glue on an ornament, sprinkle glitter over the glue and then let the ornament dry. If you have glitter glue handy, that would be even easier.
