These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things...

Okay. I have three things to blog about tonight. First, I wanted to share this awesomely easy DIY ornament that we made today.

The ingredients:

Yes, that is floor cleaner. I got it at Wal-Mart. You will also need clear glass ornaments and...GLITTER!!! I love all things glitter, don't you?

Follow this link to see how to make them:

Here is a pic of how ours turned out. We used "chunky kid glitter" and I think they turned out just fine. My kiddos and I are in love with our ornaments!
