Icy Epsom Salt Luminaries from Craftiments


Applying Epsom salts to bottles, vases and candle holders is a beautiful way to add a wintry touch to your home decor. I’ve tried the usual method of coating an object in glue and rolling it in Epsom salts. I loved the results, but abhorred cleaning up the little bits of salt that would fall off every time I touched it. As she is known to do from time to time, the little chemist inside me spoke up and said “Hey, I bet you could GROW the salt crystals right on the glass!” Several experiments later, I had figured out how to do just that. It’s actually quite simple to do and you probably have all the supplies you need right in your kitchen. Stop by and check out the tutorial!
