Pixie Dust Disneyland Ornament

You guys remember how we took our kids to Disneyland for the first time this summer?  I wanted something on our tree this year to remind us of the trip too!

I decided to make one rather than buy one, 'cause it's cooler that way.  Plus, I got to debut this post over at Undercover Tourist, a whole website dedicated to Disney travel.  Here's what you'll need to make your own pixie dust ornament:

Clear glass bulb
Glitter (color of your choice)  
Letter stickers, permanent marker or vinyl letters cut with a vinyl machine

Label your ornament with your stickers or marker.  

Use a funnel to pour some glitter down into the ornament.  Secure the top metal piece back on with some hot glue so it doesn't accidentally pop off, spilling glitter everywhere.  Tie a ribbon loop and hang it on the tree.

I did notice that the glitter has some static in it, so it may eventually travel up the sides of the bulb, but it will still look good!  What color would your pixie dust be?
