ornament epsom salt

Hey there~

Jennifer here. This post is two tutorials for some of our Homemade Christmas Decorations. This one is so unbelievably simple yet equally as effective. It is very kid/family friendly and takes very little time. They both involve using epsom salt to give a “frosted” appearance to your decorations. Epsom salt works great for this because the large salt crystals resemble ice crystals!

These two projects are frosted branches and frosted ornaments:

~Frosted branches~

branchesIngredients needed:

craft glue

epsom salt

twigs or branches from outside

paint brush for glue

paper to cover your work surface

Instructions:

1. Simply brush glue all over the twigs ( the more glue, the “frostier” they will be)

2. while glue is still wet, coat the twig with epsom salt

3. let dry and use in any place for decoration- on your tree, in a vase, anywhere!

Frosted glass ornaments

ornament

Ingredients needed:

craft glue

epsom salt

clear ball ornaments

paint brush for glue

paper to cover your work surface

Instructions:

1. Simply brush glue all over the outside of the ornament 

2. while glue is still wet, sprinkle it with epsom salt

3. let dry and use on your tree or anywhere else

See.. super simple yet fun and beautiful. This same technique can be applied to many other items like artifical fruit or greenery or even pinecones. Get creative- you can’t go wrong with this one.

Gather the kids or friends and family together and make these special projects this Christmas Season :-)
