1. Paint the balls; allow them to dry.

2. Add a top coat of pearl-finish paint; allow to dry.

3. Mix glitter and sand equally.

4. With glue, create patterns on the painted ornament and sprinkle with glitter-sand mix. Let dry.

Tips: To create clean and consistent polka dots, apply hole reinforcements to the ball and place glue in holes. Immediately sprinkle with glitter; after a few minutes, remove the hole reinforcements. For fine lines, try using a glue syringe. You can also make patterns by masking off areas with tape before applying glue.
