I made several of these epsom salt covered jars for my Christmas Eve table, and they made a lovely display with natural greens. After the holiday, I packed them in the cabinet for next year. Today however, they came back out of cabinet when I realized there was ZERO snow in our forecast and I needed something wintry and white…NOW! So while I still can’t snow-shoe, or romp about with the dogs and my nephews in fresh fluffy white stuff….at least my living room will have a snowy glow.
They are super easy to make which means the kids can get involved for some crafting fun on the weekend.
- Glass jars or drinking glasses
- Decoupage sealer or glue – I used Mod-Podge brand
- Paint Brush (disposable is great)
- Epsom Salt – You can get a carton at your local pharmacy
- Make sure your glasses are clean and dry.
- On the outside of the glass apply Mod-Podge liberally with the paint brush, but not so much it drips. Only go half to 2/3 of the way up the jar. You can make a snow drift shape, I think it looks better than straight across.
- While the Mod-Podge is still wet, roll the jar in the Epsom salt until it is completely covered.
- Allow the jar to dry.
- Add a tea light candle.
