Mirror Ornaments for a Simple & Classic Tree

Use white glitter and adhesive stencils to make these pretty and simple mirror ornaments for your Christmas tree!

Mirror Ornaments for a Simple & Classic Tree

For me, the holiday season requires a little sparkle and shine. It makes everything feel more festive! So when I’m decorating my tree, you can be sure it is filled with lots of ornaments that twinkle.

When I make my own ornaments to go on my Christmas tree, I usually need a little (or a lot of!) glitter!

Mirror Christmas Ornaments

Today I want to show you how to make easy DIY mirror ornaments with glitter and tiny mirror shapes that you can find at the craft store.

Adhesive stencils help add some pattern and interest to the mirrors. This project is quick and it would be an easy craft to make with kids, too.

I chose to use white glitter for my ornaments. I love how the white graphic prints contrast against an evergreen tree. The ornaments kind of remind me of modern snowflakes hanging from the branches.

Allow the Mod Podge and glitter to dry. Rinse off your stencil with water so it can be used again if needed.

Once dry, brush any excess glitter from the ornament. If desired, apply a thin coat of decoupage over the glitter to seal it down.

Tie a coordinating ribbon to the ornament and hang it on your tree!
