Want to add shimmer to your craft projects? Don't mess with glitter...try Epsom Salts. We purchased a box for only a $1!

With some Mod Podge (fast drying glue) and Epsom Salts....Create beautiful holiday decorations and much more.

Create two working trays lined with wax paper. One is for rolling in Epsom Salt and the other is fro drying.

Brush Mod Podge onto the surface of your project and roll it in the Epsom Salt. Set to dry.

Add white snowy shimmer to Pinecones.

Reclaim old scuffed up Christmas ornaments!

Make crystallized sticks!

**Added Note: You can spray them after they are covered and dry with Clear Mod Podge Spray Sealant or any other clear sealant. I have not put them outside yet, but I would suggest to seal them before placing them outside or if you will be handling them a lot. **

    I'd like to try using Epsom salt for snow on ceramic houses. Will the Epsom salt yellow with time? I usually use glitter. Thank you.

    Your website isn’t linking. It will only take me to barn tree place and their advertising. I have typed the address, copied and pasted tried numerous methods but can’t get past barn tree place. I suggest a better web supplier.
