Make Glittery Spheres For Decor

Glittery spheres are delightful little orbs that can add a touch of magic to any space. Their sparkly surfaces catch the light in the most enchanting way, creating a whimsical and joyful atmosphere wherever they are placed. Whether used as decorations for a party, a unique addition to a craft project, or simply as a charming trinket to brighten up a desk, glittery spheres never fail to bring a smile to people's faces. Their shimmering allure and irresistible charm make them a popular choice for those looking to add a touch of glamour to their surroundings. So, why not sprinkle a few glittery spheres around your home and sprinkle some magic into your life?


  • Smoothfoam balls in various sizes
  • Craft Paint and paint brush
  • Glitter
  • Wooden skewers
  • Large craft foam block to use as a stand for your ball skewers as they dry
  • Bowl and spoon

How To Make Your Own Glittery Sphere Decor

  1. Pour the glitter into a bowl type container
  2. Stick a wooden skewer through each ball. This will become a handle of sorts so you can work with the paint and glittery and not have to wait for each side of the ball to dry.
  3. Generously paint the Smoothfoam ball
  4. While the paint is still wet, hold the ball over the bowl of glitter and sprinkle glitter onto the ball with the spoon. Rotate the ball as you sprinkle to cover the entire ball.
  5. Insert the skewer into the foam block and allow the glitter ball to dry.

For this project I wanted to string the balls together in sets of three, so before I painted the balls I created a hole that went throw the entire ball.

I did not seal these glitter pieces, but if I were making them again, I highly recommend a spray sealer to help the glitter and paint look last longer through normal wear and tear of moving the decorations around. Mine were used in part of a craft display, but I think they’d look beautiful in a bowl or basket or hung on a string near a window. I had to leave mine behind, but when I make more, I’ll share more ideas with you!
