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 D├ęcor 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?
