Recently my favorite aunt and cousin came to hang out with our family for a long weekend. They sent us out on a date night and while we were gone, she made the cutest luminaries with the kids! Wouldn’t this make a cute valentine or mother’s day gift?! 🙂
- Epsom Salt
- jars of any size with labels completely peeled off
- food coloring
- wax paper
- cookie sheet
- several small bowls
- mod podge and paint brush
First line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Next, color the Epsom salt with food coloring in bowls. Spread it out on the waxed paper and let it dry overnight.
When you’re ready, use a paintbrush to paint mod podge onto the sides of the glass jar.
Then, roll the jars in the colored salt. You can make the jar all one color, or use your hand to sprinkle salt into stripes around the jar.
Let dry on some newspaper overnight, and spray with sealant so that the salt doesn’t fall off every time you pick it up!
Add some electric tea lights and you have yourself a beautiful lantern!
