Spray balls with Glitter Spray. Stand in sheet to dry.
 

When dry, remove all skewers.
 

Cut to fit with a ¼-inch overlap and glue 3/8-inch trim around the bottom rim of each bell.

Over waxed paper, sprinkle clappers with Silver Hologram Glitter. Let Dry.

Tips

The more time spent in preparation, the better the results. If possible, suspending the fixture so that all surfaces are free and accessible makes the painting easier.
