Epsom Salt Ornament

These easy Epsom salt Christmas ornaments were so fun to make and are an easy way to add a touch of sparkle to your holiday decor and Christmas tree. They make beautiful and thoughtful gifts for friends and family this holiday season that they will adore!  Making ornaments and baking is always one of my favorite Christmas traditions.
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~

  1. 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.

  2. 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!

    1. 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!

  3. 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.

    1. 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!

    1. Hi Donna-
      You could put a sealant on it but if it rains I’m not sure they would hold up. Let me know if you decide to try it. Happy New Year
