Here are the supplies and instructions for the Ceramic Tile Art:

Supplies

White ceramic tiles
Sharpie fine markers
91% Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol
Eyedropper
Small straw

Optional: Pieces of Felt or cork 
Waterproof Varnish
Glue

Instructions

1. Clean ceramic tiles with soap and water and let dry.

2. Using Sharpie markers, color ceramic tiles. Use can use multiple colors.

3. Using the eyedropper, methodically drop small “pools” of alcohol onto the tile. Use a straw to blow on the “pools” of alcohol to make different patterns.

4. When you have the pattern you like, let the tile dry. Then you can put a waterproof varnish over it and glue a piece of felt or cork to make it into a coaster. Or you can get a mini easel and display it that way. 

 

Here are the supplies and instructions for the Glitter Ornaments:

Clear glass or plastic ornaments
Glitter
Clear Liquid Glue
Water

1. Remove top from ornament and set aside

2. Then put some glue into a cup. Add water to the glue so that it becomes a syrupy consistancy and isn’t too thick.

3. Pour glue into the ornament. Swirl glue around in the ornament so that the glue covers the inside of the ornament. Pour any excess glue back into cup or glue bottle.

4. Pour in the glitter and swirl it around the same way as you did with the glue, covering the inside of the ornament. 

5. Let the ornament dry for a little while before putting the cap back on. When it is dried, take wire out of the cap. Glue the cap on first and then stick the wire back in. You can add stickers or rhinestones to the outside to dress it up a bit.
