Epsom Salt… Faux Ice

Sharing is caring!

 

Yesterday I showed you my cranberries and faux ice vignette… today you get the “how to.”

To make these beautiful, faux icy jars, I took some old jars (pizza sauce, jam and salsa cleaned and dried well)

and painted them with some white glue (Elmer’s).  You want the glue to be a pretty thick layer. 

Then I sprinkled Epsom salt over the wet glue.

I did one side at a time.

Once they are dry you have these beautiful creations.

I sprinkled Epsom salt on the cranberries too…

to create some wintery magic!

Once you’re done creating you can use a handful of the remainder of your Epsom salt for a nice soak in your tub… it’s great for sore muscles!

Thank you Craft Gossip’s Epsom Salt Luminaries for the inspiration!
