Crystaled Candles

Here is a quick and simple thing that you can do to turn so-so candles into WOW candles. First, you need some candles and some Epsom salt. Don't forget the Modge Podge either!



Pour the Epsom salt into a tray.



Paint the Modge Podge onto the candle. Paint it all over except the top.



Then roll your candle in the Magnesium Sulfate (Fancy words for Epsom salt!). If you need to, reapply more Modge Podge and re-roll in the salt to cover completely.



And there you have it! Beautiful "crystaled" candles.





The next time I do this, I am also going to add glitter to the Epsom salt, because who doesn't love a lot of glitter?!

  3. All I can say is WOW!! This will work great on some dinged up candles I got for free (well, I had to pull them out of my neighbors' trash can). She got rid of them because they were dinged up - maybe this will be her Christmas present - she'll actually love it, we both 'recycle' a lot of stuff.

  14. I used red candles for mine and after they'd burnt several different times for a total of about 10 hours, they started to not look so crystal-like. I hope it is just the old candles I used!
