White Christmas: Christmas Morning

Source: Martha Stewart Living, December 2000


A Christmas tree dusted with snow looks even frostier when decorated exclusively in shades of silver, white, and cream. Simple paper-and-glitter ornaments mix well with vintage metallic pieces. Glitter ornaments are easy to make and can be saved from year to year.

When working with glitter, especially kinds made of ground glass, wear gloves and a dust mask to protect yourself from fine particles. Glass glitters are translucent, so they're especially sparkly. They are, however, also more expensive than other types.

Try a combination of glitters to achieve the effects you want:
1. Mica flakes
2. Clear plastic squares
3. Opaque white
4. Powder white
5. Diamond dust
6. Powder silver
7. Coarse crystal glass
8. Silver glass
9. Fine crystal glass
