It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
Yes, it does!
Last week I was a little elf, working all around, trying to get my home ready for this week.
Yeah, its Christmas home tour week.
But, I'll talk about that in a bit, because right now I just want to let you know just how easy and inexpensive these luminaries turned out to be! I think they make perfect gifts. ;)
This is a project I've seen many times in Pinterest but haven't given it a try because I didn't have the supplies, more exactly the Epsom salts.
My son was doing a soap experiment like a month ago and I bought a big bag of Epsom salts, it was only like eight dollars. Well, he only used a small amount...
So, while in the middle of my decorating frenzy and not knowing what kind of centerpiece to add to the dining table, I remembered the luminaries and the Epsom salt and of course...
It was time to work on those.
I went throughout the house collecting glass jars... Hmmm and I got a good bunch!
The materials you'll need:
- Clear glass jars
- Epsom salts
- Mod Podge
- Brush to apply the Mod Podge onto the jars.
You only need to apply the Mod Podge to the outside of the jars. I did it using a medium size paint brush.
As soon as you're done applying the Mod podge, roll the jar onto the Epsom salts.
It goes FAST!
I did like 20 jars in 30 minutes and I only used one of those $1 Mod Podge containers for all of them.
I let them dry for about an hour, but, even before the hour mark, they felt dry already.
Some clippings from the yard were also added...
Jute rope... And they were mounted on a cake stand as a center piece:
They look GORGEOUS!
I'm using the remaining ones in my laundry room, you can see a peak of them on my Christmas Home Tour right HERE.
Give them a try. They're so easy and inexpensive!
