Now that the cold weather has started and the days are getting shorter, candles are making a regular appearance in our house. But kids and open flames are not always the best combination, so I try to keep our candles in votive holders to help deter little fingers from the fire. These salt jars are perfect. Made from recycled jars and Epsom salt, they add a beautiful wintery touch to our decor and help keep my little ones fingers away from the flame at the same time.
Things to do:
1. Spread a thick layer of salt onto your plate. Use more than you think you’ll need.
2. Holding the jar on your fingers, coat the sides of the jar, all the way to the rim, with a generous coat of Mod Podge. You don’t want it dripping off, but you want enough so the salt will stick.
3. Roll the jar in salt, making sure that the rim also gets covered. Press the salt in gently and check for any blank spots.
4. Allow the Mod Podge to dry before using.
