Shares 865

If you are looking for some great inexpensive decorations for this Winter here is one of our favorites!  This DIY Frosted Candle Holder is beautiful and elegant and takes only a few minutes to create.  These same decorative holders retail for upwards of $10 each easily and now you an create your own for not much more than $1 each!  What a great deal and a beautiful gift item to give this year as well!


Items Needed:

  • Glass Jar
  • Mod Podge
  • Epsom Salt


  • Clean and dry your jar well.
  • Using your mod podge glue, coat the outside of your glass container well. If using a larger container, work in sections to prevent the glue drying to quickly.
  • Pour some of your Epsom salt on to a plate and roll your container in the salt, making sure to coat well. If your container is too large, you can always pour your Epsom salt over it also.
  •  Tap off any excess salt and allow to dry for 2-3 hours.

I just love how easy these are to make.  Perfect for a hands on craft with the kids this holiday season.  Just make sure to be careful about using glass jars around them!  You can easily do this with a plastic holder or bottle too!  Another quick and fun addition to the basic directions is to separate your Epsom salts into 3-4 plates and use a drop or two of food coloring on each plate to create different colored “frost”.  You could even roll your glass in all the colors at random to create a “tie dye” or “rainbow” effect.  What a  great fun and easy craft this year to make your very own Frosted Candle Holders!  Pick up some awesome quality votive candles or tea lights on sale and give a beautiful gift!
