striped green plastic christmas ornament

Make a fun and easy glitter peppermint stripe ornament to add to your Christmas tree this year! Fine glitter works best so select any color(s) you want to coordinate with your décor.
Step 1

Run a strip of ¼" adhesive tape, vertically, from the top of one side, down the center, around the bottom and back up to the top of the other side of your ornament.
TIP: Leave the red covering on the tape until you are ready to add the glitter.

Step 2

Repeat Step 2 another time about halfway between the strips (from Step 1) which will form “+”.  
TIP: Use an X-ACTO® knife to cut the tape at the intersection so you are able to remove the red covering later.

Step 3

Repeat Step 2, this time with 1/8" adhesive tape, between the current strips so you have eight even sections of ornament surface between adhesive strips.

Step 4

Remove red covering from the last tape stripe placed on ornament, shake your glitter over the exposed tape until covered completely.
TIP: Shake the glitter over a paper plate so it is easy to clean up and return excess glitter to its container.

Step 5

Repeat Step 4 for each strip until all have been glittered.

Step 6
Make a small red bow with your ribbon and hot glue to the top of ornament(s).
