When I saw how to make salted candles in the December issue of Martha Stewart, I knew that this was a project that I would have to try. The picture below is from the Martha Stewart website and you can click here for a link to the directions.
This project is super easy. All you do is coat your candle with Mod Podge and then roll it in Epsom Salt. I put the Epsom Salt on a rimmed cookie sheet when I rolled my candles. They dried very quickly and were oh so sparkly.
I made a quick centerpiece for Christmas Eve dinner with my candles.
I used four tall pillar candles and three smaller ones because that’s what I had on hand. I’m going to stop by Big Lots for more candles because I’ve burned these every night since Christmas Eve and they are now “used up.”
I added faux berries for color.
I set my table with Lenox Holiday dishes and my Christmas Eve table was ready to go.
