Epsom Salt Mason Jar

I made these Epsom salt luminaries and got started on holiday decorating super early this year.

This wasn’t the cleanest project I’ve made but it was super easy.

I added some snowflake cutouts to add an extra snowy touch. You can make it without but it does look a little plain with just Epsom salt snow.

Materials for DIY Snowy Mason Jars

Mason Jars – I actually just used a marinara sauce jar and cleaned off the label. But if you don’t have any, there are so many mason jar options from Amazon.

Mod Podge – I think elmers glue works here as well but I used Mod Podge that I got from Amazon.

Epsom Salt – You can get this at most grocery or convenient store but as with a lot of things I buy, you can also order it from Amazon.

Cardstock or copy paper – I used cardstock but paper works for the snowflakes

Lights – I don’t like to use real candles because it gets too hot and I don’t want to have to keep watch. Depending on your jar size, you can use LED candles. I didn’t have a small enough one around so I just used some Christmas lights which also works but then you will have a wire hanging out from the side.

Snowflake Templates – I’ve made 7 individual snowflake templates (SVG and PDF printable versions) that are all free in my resource library.

    Step 1: Brush on a layer of Mod Podge or glue to the jar. You can use a sponge, brush or even your fingers if you want.

    Step 3: Apply the Epsom salt while the glue is still wet. I found the most effective way to do this was to just sprinkle it on.

    I tried rolling it on in a tray but it ended up being too sparse.

    Shake off excess salt.

    Step 4: Let it dry, it will take a few hours.
