Pour Crayola Play Sand, glitter (or a mix of both!) into a medium sized bowl and sit to the side.


Using the brush, paint Mod Podge or liquid glue onto the ornament with swift strokes until the ornament is covered specifically where you'd like to add materials.


Next, dip the ornament in in your bowl of Crayola Play Sand. This method works specifically for covering a large solid area of the ornament.


Let dry for about an hour and then it's ready to hang in the tree!!
