DIY EPSOM SALTS SNOW BALL TREE DECORATIONS

 Hi Friends,

Today I'm sharing my DIY Epsom salts snow ball tree decorations.  

These snow balls are super easy and very affordable to make. 

I purchased a large bag of Epsom salts which I poured into a bowl. I also purchased styrofoam balls which were approximately 10cms in diameter. I wanted my balls to be big. Lastly I gathered my Mod Podge and a brush for applying. 

I did one half of the ball at a time. Brushing on the Mod Podge, 

Then pressing my ball into the bowl of Epsom salts.


I set them aside for the first half to dry, and then repeated the process.


When they were fully dry I placed some in a try on the coffee table. 


Later I decided to hang them on our Christmas tree by attaching some jute twine. 


I loved how they sat in the branches of our tee and really stood out. 



They also reflected the fairy light with a pretty sparkle.

Updated 14 November 20220 - I was asked how these would hold up in humidity/moisture in the long term. They did hold up well for the first Christmas, but when I unpacked them the next year they had lost their sparkle and were a bit flat and chalky looking. They are still very usable though and  still a very easy project which looks great. No regrets! 😁
