We used: Epsom salt.Three nicely scented Dollar Tree candles. Mod Podge. Paint brush. Plastic container or box.
Place roughly three cups of Epsom salt into the container.
Unwrap candles and paint on Mod Podge all around the candle.
Place candle in to the Epsom salt and roll it around to completely cover it. We found it easier and got more coverage by applying the Epsom salt with our hands over the box. Set aside to dry.
Do the same process on the other candles.
Allow candles to completely dry.
To display candles we used a Dollar Tree kitchen plate. Added a cup or two of Epsom salt to the plate and placed on our frosty pillar candles. A little touch of frosty greenery is charming.
Love the frosty, icy blue candles. Makes you want to put on a pair of ice skates and go skating!
Can't you just feel the cool, crisp Winter snow on your face now coming off these frosty pillar candles?!
The Epsom salt takes on the look of "beaded" candles at times.
We really like the way the Mod Podge was applied a little thicker at the top of the candle and gives a realistic feel of how snow fell and stayed a little more in those spots.
These candles would be a nice touch near the tub. Save some of that Epsom salt and light your candles for a relaxing Winter soak.
We love the simplicity of these frosty pillar candles. They are simply beautiful to look at even if they are never lit. Lets not forget those Winter babies who have birthday's coming up. These would be a really nice gift to give. Be inspired, get creative!
May the Lord answer you when you are in distress;
may the name of the God of Jacob protect you.
