This week's quickie project is Snow Ball Ornaments:
The idea came to me when I saw all those cute snow crusted candles everyone in blogland was making with epsom salts. I always make personalized ornaments for every family on hubby's side and thought this would translate well.
Here's the needed supplies:
I took a clear glass bulb:
Put some Mod Podge on the bottom using a paint brush. You can do as little or as much as you want here. I wanted to be able to put stuff inside the ornament and still be able to see it, so I only did the bottom third or so:
Dip the ornament in a bowl full of epsom salts:
Shake off the excess and stick it upside down in something to dry!
Tada! Each ornament takes less than a minute to do. I did an entire box of nine in 10 minutes or so. I'm not completely done with mine yet (I wanted to let the Mod Podge dry thoroughly). I plan on either drawing initials on them with paint pens or using vinyl letters to say "Let it Snow" on them. I haven't decided which yet. Any thoughts?
I think this would also probably look great with colored glass balls as well, especially red ones! I'll show you mine when I get them all the way finished. Link up yours if you make some, I'd love to see them!
