I have only just started playing with Christmas projects. What kind of crafter am I?! So behind. But Vivian from The V Spot keeps sharing all these wonderful things she’s done with Epsom Salt and I just couldn’t delay any further.
“Help! Some crazy chick stuck me in a jar”
Here’s what I started with:
Package of flocked snowman doohickeys by Darice. I got mine at Michaels.
I swirled some glue in the bottom of my jar and then poured in about a handful of epsom salt. Covered the opening with my hand and shook it like a maraca. While that was drying, I painted the lid silver. While that was drying, I went back to my jar and sprayed some adhesive and sprinkled some iridescent glitter in the jar.
When my lid was dry, I glued one of the snow men in the middle:
then spread a little more of the salt around him. Ran a bead of glue around the lip of the jar and put the lid back on. Actually I put the jar on the lid vs the lid on the jar if you follow.
So cute Carol! I love him. :)
That's actually very cute! I'm fancying making one, but with a bottle brush Christmas tree.Thank you!
What a cute idea. I'll have to make a few of those. Kathi
I love this! You scared me for a split second, because I'm getting ready to make real snow-globes using a similar method, and I worried you put the epsom salt in water. (cuz that would NOT have the desired effect.) This is seriously charming! Pinned, stumbled, tweeted and shared on my fb page. (That's how much I love it.)
Super cute, Carol! I've been wanting to make some of my own snow globes. SO what type of glue did you use??
Very cute! I think I have to start my Christmas crafts soon, too. I even have my OWN epsom salt craft to share. Hope you like it!
Cute idea, love her blog now too!
This is totally adorable. Great project and I love the little snowman.
This is too cute! I must make one of these for my little Grandson (18 mths) -he would love it!! I have a small plastic jar that would work perfect for a (toddler-shatterproof) Snowman. Thanks for sharing this project. AJ@queenofmynest
Every year I say I'm going to make these with the kids and I never get around to it. They look like so much fun to create. I guess I'll be putting this project on my Christmas craft to do list!
Thanks for sharing at Make the Scene Monday!
Very cool!! So excited you shared it at our Special Christmas Soiree!! Thanks!
