Glitter & Glass

I love glass and glitter.  When I saw the pictures on Pinterest I knew it was something I needed to try.  The pink glitter jar photos are from the website, where I got the original instructions for this project.  Both the list of supplies and instructions are so simple, it only takes minutes to complete a project. 
You need only Pledge floor polish, glitter (fine works best), and your glass piece (jar, ornament, bottles, etc.) and other decorative pieces are optional.
Here are the instructions for the Christmas ornament that I made:
Simply clean the glass ornament and allow to dry.  I purchased a 4-pack at Michaels.  Pour in a small amount of Pledge and swirl around so the entire inside of the ornament is coated.  The clear polish acts as a glue and causes the glitter to stick to the sides of the ornament.  Dump out the remaining polish (back into the bottle is OK) and pour in some glitter.  Swirl and shake the glitter around inside the ornament until the entire inside area is coated.   Allow some time for the Pledge polish to dry and your project is complete.  Please keep in mind that the glitter can scratch off if you touch it with the metal holder.  The good thing is that since the glitter is on the inside, it doesn't fall off all over your clothes or your house!   I added a black ribbon and a "diamond" buckle to look like Santa's middle.
If the inside doesn't get coated as completely as you'd like, you can rinse it out with warm water and start again.
