These are very easy. You'll LOVE making them just as much as you love the end result! You'll need a clear glass ornament ball. You can get them at the craft store for about 50 cents each. You'll also need re-inkers in your choice of colors. I've used Real Red, Brilliant Blue and even Versamark re-inkers. Take the wire hook and cuff off the top of the ornament ball to uncover the opening. Drop about 10-15 drops of reinker into the ball. Slowly rotate the ball around so the re-inker covers the entire inside of the ball. Set the ball inverted in a plastic (disposable) cup to allow any excess ink to drip out. Let it sit for about 5 minutes. Make a funnel out of a piece of scrap paper and pour some Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Cover the hole with a paper towel and your fingers and shake so the glitter covers the inside of the ball. Pour the excess glitter back into its container. Replace the hook and cuff. Decorate with ribbon and bells.
Smile! It makes people wonder what you've been up to. :)
