Ok, I really don’t love glitter… but I do, it’s kind of a love/hate sort of thing. Pro : It’s gloriously glam, and a really cheap way to add sparkle! Con : The fact that every time you touch it, it ends up all over your face at some inconvenient time later that day (or week!) is annoying. But at Christmas, that same annoying quality becomes festive and fun… go figure, right? Nothing says holiday like glitz and glitter, so we went out and found our favorite DIY glitter ornaments & decor projects to make your holiday happy! All of these are easy seasonal DIY projects that can add that little bit of sizzle that your old Christmas decorations are missing.

Holiday Wine Glass DIY

Since we are wine drinkers, and love to give wine at the holidays, these DIY glittered wine glasses were a perfect project for us! From ‘See Vanessa Craft‘. I would spray them with a clear sealer after they dry so I could at least hand wash them. You could also use these as DIY Christmas decor by filling them with small, sparkly ornaments.
