There is a young lady who was a member of our Venturing Crew who always ordered sprinkles for her ice cream. Sprinkles just make everything fun, don’t you agree? I’ve made Glitter Ornaments before (a technique where the glitter is inside the ornament which means …. NO GLITTER MESS). So, could I use this same technique to make cake sprinkle ornaments? YES!
Aren’t these ornaments festive & fun? This past weekend, I saw a post from The Happier Homemaker who uses a slightly different technique to make cake sprinkle ornaments if you’d like to check out her post. Anyway, here’s how I made my ornaments.
- Clear glass ornaments, available at your local craft stores
- Pledge floor finish
- Cake sprinkles
- Egg Carton
Carefully remove the hanger from your ornament. Pour some pledge into your ornament and swish around being careful to totally cover the inside of your ornament. Pour out any excess pledge and then place your ornament, upside down, in an egg carton. You really want to get all the excess out or your sprinkles will bleed. Allow your ornament to “drain” for 5 minutes.
Using a funnel, pour sprinkles into your ornament.
Carefully turn your ornament to coat the inside with sprinkles and add more if necessary. DO NOT SHAKE your ornament.
Set your ornament back on your egg crate to dry. Carefully put your hanger back into the ornament.
Aren’t these cake sprinkle ornaments fun? I used sprinkles that have Christmas trees in them….fun!
I think these cake sprinkle ornaments are so whimsical!
Now, here’s a photo to show you what will happen if you shake your cake sprinkle ornament and that you can fix your mistake!
This is such a quick and easy ornament to make. In fact, it’s pretty addictive! However, you may want to have a bit more variety in your holiday crafting. If so, I’ve got great news for you! It’s Craft Lightning Holiday Edition. All week long, a group of bloggers are sharing their holiday crafts that take 15 minute or less (not including drying time).

Update: I just learned that these ornaments do not hold up well to the US mail so these are best to make and give locally.
