    Step 1

    Remove the silver hangers from your ornaments and set them aside.

    Step 2

    Pour a small amount of the latex polyurethane into your ornament. Rotate the ornament around, allowing the polyurethane to coat the entire inside of your ornament. Add more as needed.

    Step 3

    Set the ornament upside down in the small cup provided or other cup, and allow the polyurethane to drain for 1-2 minutes, until all excess has drained out.

    Step 4

    Pour a small amount of the glitter into your ornament and rotate around, like you did with the polyurethane, tapping on the sides as you go and adding more glitter as necessary.

    Step 5

    Cover the hole with your thumb and shake the ornament to distribute any additional glitter inside the ornament. Once the insides are completely covered, shake out the excess glitter. At this point, your ornament may appear cloudy because the polyurethane isn’t yet dry, but don’t worry, the glitter color will become more prominent once it is dry. Dry for 24 hours.

    Step 6

    The included vinyl sticker is secured to a clear, adhesive transfer sheet and backed with paper. Remove the paper backing only. Lining up the sticker on your ornament as desired, press the transfer sheet and vinyl sticker to the ornament, using your fingers to press the sticker down. It’s only necessary to adhere the transfer paper around the sticker. Slowly peel the clear transfer sheet away, leaving the vinyl sticker adhered to the ornament. You may have to press delicate edges down as you pull the transfer sheet away.
