DIY Glitter Beach Sunglass Ornaments

If you have’t seen this year’s Luau Santa tree, go and check it out. It’s a colorful and bright tree that has a tropical island vibe. And since I didn’t have any ornaments to fill it, I made most of the decorations myself. This is the third out of four ornament tutorials I’ll be sharing for this year’s tree. I’ve already shared the tropical cocktail ornament and painted container pineapple ornament. The last ornament, Luau Santa Beach Ball Ornament, will be share tomorrow on the annual ornament exchange.
