How do you remove glitter from ornaments?

put into pan of hot soapy water. It will soften up the glue and the glitter/glue can be easily scraped off with a single edge blade (with holder, of course). If there is any residue left after scraping, Goo Gone will do wonders, and make your kitchen smell like lemon.

Can you use Elmer's glue for glitter ornaments?

I experimented with several types of glue and found Elmer's Glue to be the far-and-away best. You should use a sponge brush to paint the glue all over the ornament. I usually stick my finger into the ornament opening and hold it that way. Liberally sprinkle glitter all over the wet glue.

How do you make glitter ornaments with Polycrylic?

Squirt in a few drops of the Minwax Polycrylic and roll the ornament around to coat the inside. I covered then entire ornament for some, and only halfway up on others. Just remember, a little Polycrylic goes a long way. Next, just pour in the glitter, put your thumb over the opening, then shake.

Mod Podge does dry clear, allowing you to fully see any paper or material you have mod podged onto. The Mod Podge matte product will dry clear with a matte finish, meaning it is not shiny. The Mod Podge Gloss, however, will add a layer of sheen to your project.
