Space Wedding Galaxy Favors

When trying to find space/planet/universe ideas
came across
galaxy ornaments
We decided that the
smaller version would be
the best idea
These mini iridescent ornaments
were purchased 
at Hobby Lobby

I used Pledge floor finisher
Swish a very small amount
it in and drain
then using a funnel layer in glitter colors
shake out excess
I followed up by putting black glitter
to fill in any spaces
Let air dry
The color combos are endless!

They were then put into these
small favor boxes from Dollar Tree
