Holiday Ornaments-Parent Gifts...Done!

We finished our holiday ornaments/magnets for our parents.  This is an easy project that I have done for years.  You will need mason jar lids.  I have used regular size or the large.  The large just takes more glue and glitter.  

First you will need to use a hole punch to punch a hole at the top of each lid.  I just purchased a hole punch with cushioned handles.  So much better.  After punching 20 holes your hand will be  TH. ROB. ING. 

Next I put on one of the sticker pictures given to us by our photographer who takes our school photos.

 Then the children paint White Elmers Glue all  over the lid.  REMEMBER do not put glue over the photo.  Where ever the glue goes so does the glitter. 

Shake, shake, shake the glitter all over the lid.
I purchased this parmesan cheese shaker from Walmart.

The tray is from Michaels.  A must for any glitter project.
Remind the kiddos...DO NOT remove the cap from the tray.  Glitter will spill all over the floor.  YES. This happened today.  My tile never looked so sparkly!

Remove the lid from the tray, let dry.  Add a ribbon and VOILA!  A beautiful ornament.  If you have children who do not have a tree just add a magnet to the back for their fridge.

Have a Wonderful Holiday Everybody!
