This easy glitter snowman & tree are inexpensive and super easy to make. Great for kids, girls night out, party favors, gifts, winter decor, etc.

Let’s start with the Snowman…

You’ll need:
Glass Snowman (Thrift Store)
Pledge Floor Care Finish (Walmart)
White & Black Glitter (Hobby Lobby)
Black Permanent Marker or Black Acrylic Paint
White iridescent glitter nail polish – optional
Flicker Candle (Dollar Tree) – optional

Pour the Pledge into the snowman.

Swirl the Pledge all over the glass.

Pour the extra Pledge back into the jar.

Pour glitter into the glass jar. Shake the glitter all over the jar. I did black glitter in the hat, and white glitter in the body.

Dump the extra out and if it’s dry you can put it back in your glitter jar.

Let the inside dry completely – about 24 hours.

I colored the face and scarf in with a permanent marker. You could use acrylic paint as well. Once that dried I coated it with white iridescent glitter nail polish. The nail polish came from the Dollar Tree.

Optional – add a battery operated flicker tealight candle.

Now on to the Tree…

You’ll need:
Glass Tree (Thrift Store or order on Amazon)
Pledge Floor Care Finish (Walmart)
Glitter of your choice (Hobby Lobby)
Optional Embilishments – jewels, rhinestones, bows, ribbon, etc.
Battery Operated Tealight (Dollar Tree) – optional

  • Adorable, my friend! And I think both my son and I would have fun making something like this ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, the addition of the rhinestones on the tree set it off perfectly.

    Happy week to you! Hugs! Stephanie-The Enchanting Rose

  • These are ADORABLE! I love them. Just when I was thinking that you could put some gems on the tree, (having spent time at Dollar Tree where they have sticky gems for kids) in the NEXT picture you showed the gems on the tree! Great minds think alike my friend. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I have made ornaments galore using this method this Christmas but never once did I stop to think about what ELSE I could coat in floor finish and glitter; I love these. I especially love the snowman with the tealight inside. Thanks for sharing with us at the Virtual Refrigerator. Pinned.

    • Thank you Liz, I first learned about this as people were doing it inside clear ornaments… then I thought humm why not other things ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I had no idea you could use floor finish like this. They look great, especially with the battery tea lights inside.

  • Wow! These are beautiful! I would have never thought to use floor finish for this. Thank you for sharing.

  • I’m not much of a crafter, and this may be a silly question, but does the floor finish act as a clear glue? Would Mod Podge work? They are really cute and look very easy to do. Thanks for sharing your crafts.

    • Thank you Rose, yes the floor finish is sticky so it is like a glue. Mod Podge will work and I have used that as an option as well. Thank you for being part of our community ๐Ÿ™‚
