I had so many things to do and now it is getting down to the wire. Hopefully, next week I will be able to at least do some of the baking, making, crafting things that I wanted to do before Christmas. Why is it that time goes by so quickly? There is never enough time.
One thing that I did this weekend and you might want to find time to do this. I went to Kroger and bought 4 bags of Epsom Salt. And, I purchased some clear glass containers from Michaels, along with those little animals that children play with..the plastic kind..like deer, dogs, etc. Also, I bought miniature Santas, etc. I found some things in my Christmas decorations that I could use...I pulled some greenery from fake pine decorations, and you could also use real pine stems.
I poured a little less than 1/2 of the bag of Epsom salt into each container. Just enough to make it look pretty. Then, for one container, I placed a Golden Retriever in the "snow" and a pine thingy that looked like a Christmas tree. I sprinkled some of the salt onto the tree to make it look as if it had snow on it. Then, I put a mini Santa, snowman in the snow. Wallah! What a beautiful decoration. The salt looks just like sparkly snow.
I made several of these as gifts. Love them. I will take a picture and post on here so that you can see for yourself. And, I found this idea of Pinterest.
