Technical Difficulties

Just wanted to let you know that 100 Days of Christmas Craftiness will hopefully be back tomorrow.  I’ve been having technical difficulties and am hoping that by updating some things on the back end of this site, we will be back to normal tomorrow! :)

Cupcake Bath Bombs {Day 2: 100 Days of Christmas Craftiness}

If you’re looking to give the gift of relaxation, I highly recommend these Cupcake Bath Bombs.  They are super easy to make and are inexpensive too.  Consider giving one as a teacher’s gift with a tag that says “You’re the bomb!” or give them to all your girlfriends.

Psalm 18:32-36 {Verse of the Day}

Today’s Verse of the Day is Psalm 18:32-36.

It is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he enables me to stand on the heights. He trains my hands for battle; my arms can bend a bow of bronze. You give me your shield of victory, and your right hand sustains me; you stoop down to make me great. You broaden the path beneath me, so that my ankles do not turn.

 

DIY Glitter Ornaments {Day 1: 100 Days of Christmas Craftiness}

Glitter ornaments are one of my favorite Christmas crafts.  They’re also the starting point for many other craft projects that I make at Christmas time, so I thought this was the perfect project for Day 1 of 100 Day of Christmas Craftiness!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Clear ornaments (you can use glass or plastic, but I would definitely use plastic if you’re doing this with kids)
  • Glitter (I really like the way extra fine glitter works)
  • Pledge Floor Care Multi Surface (they discontinued the Pledge Floor Care shown in the picture above but the Multi Surface works just as well.  I’ve had the bottle pictured above for 3 years and I’ve still hardly used any of it)
  • Funnel
  • Ribbon (optional…you can also choose to hang them on ornament hooks)

This project is so easy that you can do it with your kiddos.  {My kids made these with me.}

Remove the top of your ornaments. Pour a small amount of Pledge Floor Care into your ornament and swirl it around.  If you shake it, it will cause bubbles and your glitter will not stick as well.  Once the inside is thoroughly coated, dump the remaining liquid back into the Pledge bottle.

Using your funnel, add the glitter color of your choice to the inside of the ornament.  Use the same swirling motion to fully coat the inside of your ornament in glitter.  When you are finished, dump the remaining glitter back into its container.

Allow the inside of your ornament to dry before putting the top back on it so you don’t end up with scratches in the glitter.

Once the top is back on, you can add ribbon or just hang them using wire Christmas hooks.

Voila!  Super easy, gorgeous glittery Christmas ornaments!

John 16:33 {Verse of the Day}

Today’s Verse of the Day is John 16:33.

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
