Epsom Salt and Glitter Crushed Peppermint Ornament

I love all the things you can do with clear ornaments but my favorite ones are the flat ones. I’m sure there’s a name for them but they’re the round ones that look like you took a ball an flattened it.
I needed something I could make multiples of without breaking the bank so thank you Michaels for having these 50% off. Picked up a few packs of these (4 for $2.50) along with some of these glittered snowflake ornaments  by Darice ( $1.99 for a package of 12).
Glued a snowflake on one side and cut out white vinyl snowflakes using my Cricut Expression (Damask Décor cart) and stuck one on the other side.
Recolletions Glitter
Got out some tinsel glitter and Epsom salt, and spooned a little Epsom salt, silver, and red glitter into my ornament. Finished with a bow from red with silver polka dot ribbon.

I think it looks like crushed peppermint.

Brilliant! It does look like crushed peppermint. So much easier than actually crushing them!! :)

It totally does! I really like this! We found a set of clear ornaments packed away in the Christmas stuff that has been sitting on my counter just dying for inspiration. I am inspired! These are great!

I've been saving those round coke bottles that corm out at Christmas because I always think they'll be good for something crafty. I never know what to do with them, though. I do now! Thank you for sharing!

Those are really cute. It really does look like crushed peppermint. I wonder if a dab of peppermint essential oil on it somewhere would fake everyone out?

I couldn't agree more. It does look like crushed peppermint! Love this ornament!
