Tutorial Tuesday

It's time for Tutorial Tuesday!
Today I am going to show you how to alter clear bulbs into a huge hit for the holidays.
Supplies needed: clear glass bulbs (your choice of size and shape), fine glitter (color of your choice), Pledge Floor Wax, embellishments, hooks/ribbon/string to hang bulb, sentiment of choice

Step 1:  Use a surface that is easy to clean when making these bulbs.  Pour floor wax into bulb.  Swish around until inside is coated.  Pour excess into a cup or back into the bottle.

Step 2:  Pour fine glitter into bulb.  Swish glitter around inside the bulb until coated completely.  You may need to add more glitter.  Pour excess glitter out.
Step 3:  Add string or hook to bulb for hanging.
Step 4:  Add sentiment of choice.  I chose Shelly's Images Happy Holiday sentiment.  I used two so that if the bulb spins that the sentiment is visible on both sides.

I hope you enjoyed our tutorial today.  Thanks for stopping by!!!
