Fall Epsom Salt Craft

I saw this idea for the candle on Pintrest.com and fell in love! (here is the original blog post). I decided to do pumpkins too. I picked up the little foam type pumpkins at Big Lots for only $1 each! The candle happened to be 1/2 off at Hobby Lobby and the Epsom Salt was less than $3 at Big Lots! So all in all, an inexpensive centerpiece for my dining room table! (I also picked up a wire basket from Goodwill for $2, and am painting it a glossy chocolate to put all this in).


The tools you need are:

ModPodge

Wax paper

Spoon

A tray to put your Epsom salt in (i used a re-usable foil pan i had on hand)

Foam Brush

Epsom Slat

Items to make sparkle!


Here it is all layed out. I used the wax paper to put the items on after i put the Epsom salt on so they can dry and not get all over.

coat the item (here my pumpkins) in the ModPodge.

Hint: The more modpodge, the more Epsom salt will stick to it
Roll your item around in the tray. Use a spoon to help cover it completely
You will see it start to sparkle immediately!


Finished product (not quite dry)

Aren't they pretty?!

Coat your candle in ModPodge (I chose to only go 3/4 the way up my candle) You can put on as much or as little as you want!

Again, Roll it in the Epsom Salt and use your spoon to help

Finished Candle

You can still see the different color of pumpkins coming through



I think this would be pretty if you group some candles together and add candle holders and give as a shower or wedding gifts. (and of course good gifts for Christmas, teachers, housewarming)

T-shirt Scarf

I made this with Jersey Knit or you can also use an old t-shirt. I cut 5 in. strips and folded them accordian style into 5 in. squares and cut them witht my Bigz Square Scallop Die in my Big Shot. It was fast and easy! I then put them on a diagonal and sewed them with a zigzag stich. Thats it! I even went to Salvation Army and found a pretty tie dye shirt and made one for my daughter, she loves it!

Cool FREE products!

So I joined this website called Vocalpoint. All I did was take a survey a couple days ago & I received this in the mail today! I had no idea it was coming! I love surprises!
I have taken other survey's and received coupons for product, but this is the first time I've ever received anything like this from them....WAY COOL! I like FREE!

Owl Punch Class

These are the items we made in my Owl Punch class, 4 cards and a bookmark. It's just amazing all the "critters" you can make with this adorable punch! I just love him, I think he's my favorite! And I think the google eyes give it some personality too!




One Sheet Wonder Class

We made all these cards out of ONE (1) 12x12 sheet of Designer Series Paper (DSP). I used the Build A Bear Workshop paper. I thought it was very summery (is that a word? lol) and cute!

Durring this class we made 10 cards (and had paper left over), however there are templates out there where you can make 16 cards. I did a search on Google and Split Coast Stampers for "One Sheet Wonder Templates".

If I can ever figure out how to add a PDF link, i'll post them here. I do not take any credit for the templates & directions...

Tart n Tangy Cherries

I used the Tart n Tangy stamp set on this. I love cherries, they make me happy!
This stamp set is currently FREE when you purchase $50 (before S&H) of Stampin' Up! product durring Sale-A-Bration!
I love FREE! It's my favorite 4 letter 'F' word!




Altered Clear Mount Stamp Case

These Clear Stamp Cases (item # 119105) can hold more than just the clear stamps! Check out the Notebook Holders I made...
BEFORE & BORING!


AFTER!
This Old Olive & Very Vanilla one is mine (hence the letter "K")
I added a pocket to the inside for receipts or other things I gather.


I attached it with stickey back velcro circles (purchased at Wal-mart). This way if I want to swap out colors, I can just pull it off and put on a new color!

This pretty pink Owl Punch Notebook Holder is super cute and super girly! I didn't have a punch or Big Shot die to cut a branch for her to stand on, so I used the 'brush' end of the Early Espresso Stampin' Write Marker and Old Olive to make the leaves. I am certainly NOT an artist, so if I can do this, SO CAN YOU!

This Cherry Cobbler & Very Vanilla one is very simple and pretty with the ribbon added to the side. On the insde I just added a scallop circle punch to the center to give it a
little added extra something

If you have any questions on how to make these let me know! It's really simple and most important inexpensive. They come in a package of 4 (about $1.25 ea) and uses as little as one piece of Designer Series Paper per case!
...what a great gift for mothers day...hint ~ wink ;)
I made one for my husband for his Christmas stocking and he actually uses it (He writes lists for everything!) and I added a picture of our little girl to the front of his.
