Epsom Salt Ornament
~Hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween~
I have been getting a ton of requests for the Epsom Salt Christmas Ornament thanks to Pinterest. Unfortunately the link was broken but is now back up, you can find the full tutorial right here!
I already had the glass balls (purchased at Michael’s) and we always have epsom salt on hand (99 cent store).
Took out one of the kids glue sticks and glued about 3/4 of the ornament leaving a little bit of a swirl design on top.
Dipped it into the salt.
Let dry and you are done, it doesn’t get much easier.
I added some faux snow to a few other ornaments and scattered them around the dinning room table centerpiece.
Hope you will give it a try for the upcoming holidays!
~Have a fabulous weekend~
My gosh- These are so easy even the kids could make them for their Moms or teachers with a cute little hangtag attached. Thanks so much- xo Diana
It’s too pretty not to! Thanks for sharing.
I am going to make these! So pretty and sparkly. Love that it is a simple project, too. I think a bunch of them set in a glass bowl that I have will be a pretty centerpiece.
I love that idea! Quick, easy and pretty. Thanks for sharing, Kristin!
Hope you have a great weekend!
Thank you for sharing! Love it.
So cool looking and easy. I must do this too! Thanks for the inspiration!
I made these at home and they’re beautiful! I also covered wine bottles in epson salt and put some pretty decorative branches in the bottle. I get more compliments on this homemade display than I do on my expensive store-bought decorations!
Love this idea!!! How could you do colors like red or green? Would food coloring work?
Yes, any color would work, send me a picture if you make one, would love to see it!
Just a gentle FYI, it’s “epsom” not “epson” (it’s easier to do a search when the corrected term is used). Beautiful job on the ornaments!
Thank you so much for the Epson Salt Ornament directions. Love them!

Thank you Nancy
Do you think this would work on the clear plastic ornaments?
Hi Jodi, I don’t see why not. Worst case, you wash it off and start on a new craft with them 🙂
So easy and so beautiful! Looks great with all the burlap in the background too 🙂
How long will these last in storage and how do you store them? P.s. they are beautiful!
Hi Susan, I kept them in the same containers they came in. After the fourth year they had a little bit of yellowing. Thanks for stopping in today!
Absolutely beautiful. Thanks for sharing this great ornament idea. My family and I have been making glass ornaments every year since my boys were in elementary school (now 28 & 25) it’s become a family tradition.
I love that you have kept the tradition going with the boys, so fun! My boys are 19,17,15 and we still decorate gingerbread houses and make cookies every year, it makes my heart happy. Have fun making the ornaments and Merry Christmas!
