DIY Holiday Ornaments with the Spin It Ornament Arm Kit

Hey there We R friends, Laura here today. Making glitter ornaments is fun, but if you have ever made them, then you know what a mess they can be after you take them off the tree. Now, you can create epoxy ornaments using the Spin It tool and the ornament arm attachment. This fully seals in the glitter to create a hard-shiny coating.

To start with you will remove the Spin It arm by rotating it counterclockwise. Attach the ornament arm by rotating it clockwise until it is tight. Check the depth of your ornament and then wrap the arm with adhesive foam. You may need one or two pieces depending on the diameter of your opening.

Apply glitter to your ornament by coating the ornament with adhesive and then sprinkling it on. Turning the Spin It to low while sprinkling the glitter on gives you a nice even coat. I did two different designs of glitter. On the teal ornament I used both chunky and fine glitter. On the red and green one, I did the top half in red and the bottom in green. Allow the glitter to dry.

Mix your epoxy according to the package directions. Usually, you measure equal parts of A and B and then stir slowly to combine for about 2 minutes.

With the ornament rotating, slowly pour on your epoxy. Use your stir stick to spread the epoxy over the ornament. Allow the ornament to rotate on low for about 4 hours. The epoxy will still be slightly tacky at this time, so allow the ornament to cure completely for 24 hours.

Do 2 – 3 coats of epoxy for the best coverage over the glitter. You can see on the red and green ornament below, I only did one coat of epoxy, and while the glitter is sealed, the epoxy looks a little lumpy. This can be fixed by doing additional coats. Lightly sand the ornament in between coats.

To embellish your ornament, you can use the Tassel Loom to create a cute little tassel to hang from your ornament. I made a yarn tassel for the teal ornament and baker’s twine tassel for the red and green ornament.
