I love snow days, and unfortunately, we don't get very many of them here in the middle of NC! While my job *does* allow for snow days, the hubs HAS to go into work when the weather goes south. Even still, I dream of a big winter storm, where we're snowed in (with heat and power, of course!), can snuggle on the couch, sip hot chocolate, then head outside to build a snowman and skate on our ice-covered cul-de-sac.
A girl can dream, right?
In the meantime, a more likely place to find snow is on our kitchen table...tonight!
I've seen these "snow candles" in stores around town, and figured I could make my own.
Here's how I did it:
What you need for this project:
- wax candles, any size
- mod podge or elmer's glue
- epsom salts
- foam paint brush
- paper towels
Step #1: Pour a layer of epsom salts onto a paper towel.
Step #2: Using your foam brush, brush a light layer of mod podge all around the outside of your candle.
Step #3: While the modge podge is still wet, roll your candle in the epsom salts, completely covering the sides of the candle.
Step #4: Then, sit on a paper towel to air dry.
We received this iron candle holder as a housewarming gift, which is a great centerpiece for holiday decorating...fill it with Easter eggs at Easter, mini pumpkins for Halloween/Thanksgiving, and Christmas ornaments for Christmas!
Time to snow-ify these candles!!
|after! (After-thought: I plan to tie some ribbon on the stems below each candle...)|
This was a super-simple project!
Try it and let me know what you think!
