How might the Ebsom salts be tinted? If this is doable, please describe the process. Beautiful craft!

To dye the salt, simply mix it with food coloring. Just add salt to a ziplock bag, add food coloring and shake the bag (you can also use your hands to mix the salt). Thanks! - Julia from FaveCrafts

Very pretty. Seems like it's an easy craft I'll make. ty for sharing

Very Cute project. I would make this!

I've just seen it and I hope I will get time to make it. It looks lovely, and will go well with my decor.

Haven't made it but it looks lovely and is something worth making. I will in the future.

Fantastic idea for unused bottles not just for Christmas but also for weddings birthdays or any occasion

I like them. I think they would be prettier if you could have used a glass cutter and cut off part of the neck of the bottle. They would look more like a vase than a bottle.

I like these and will probably make them for my centerpiece. The trouble will be finding 3 bottles of different sizes.

I love those vases.

I love this! It looks so elegant yet it is so easy to do. I don't drink wine but I can see doing this with any shaped bottle. I can't wait to get started!!

they look fantastic

They're very pretty. I'd make them

I love this project! I made them and added a little white glitter and put some twigs with red berries in them. They are beautiful on my fireplace hearth!

I never would have thought to use Epsom salts...what a great idea! I made a similar project over the summer using textured paint on wine bottles and then painted them turquoise and added starfish on bead "necklaces"... Your project is stunning and would be a beautiful addition to a Christmas/Winter display!

Wow I would like to make this! Its so very easy and looks good! Once I find out of, what Epsom salt is here i Denmark, I will buy some and make the bottles!

Found out that Epsom salt is the same as magnesiumsulphate - so I will search for that!

This is a great idea! I haven't thought of using salt to give this effect. You did a great job on this one. Beautiful and easy to make too!

Really effective! Thank you for sharing

Its really great! I'm going to try this. Thanks!

I wonder how well this would work on acrylic baubles..?

Hi there, I imagine you could use the same technique - give it a try and leave another comment letting us know how it worked! - Julia from FaveCrafts

I made several of these last year & Loved them however the (snow) kept falling off so I sprayed them with a clear fixative & that helped a lot.

Good to know. I am making these this Christmas.

Son muy lindas estas botellas decoradas.

I LOVE This Idea & I'm Going To Use It This Christmas & Keep All Year Long

great idea will have to try it for sure

Such a cool idea and great way to turn an empty bottle into something new! I'm going to try this. Thanks!

really awsome thank you for sharing

Can you use any kind of bottle? We don't have any wine bottles. it looks beautiful.

If you have a Salvation Army, Goodwill, or a Secondhand Store near you, I would look for vases, or oil and vinegar bottles. When I saw these I too thought they were beautiful and would be great to make, my thoughts though also ran to any jar or bowl that was plain and needed dressing up... Canisters were the first that came to mind.... So I think, most any smooth surfaced jar or bottle would work well with this process. Hope this helps. =)

Love this!

Question, will any kind of primer adhere to the glass?

Like it it looks like Christmas.

This is really pretty. And I got rid of a few wine bottles because I didn't know what to do with them. An additional step to this could be to spray the bottle after applying the epsom salt, with a poly coating to protect it. Maybe even add just a little glitter here & there over the bottles. I think I'm going to make up a bunch of these to offer at the craft fair in September.

Also wanted to say, it looks like this is being done in the kitchen. I would probably want to do this outside to avoid overspray.

Nice idea but Epsom salt is not saft to use if someone touches is & puts it to their mouth that would not be safe. Better to use other product that is not close to food. You could also spray with different color paint then use contrasting glitter or such.

Epsom salt is non toxic.

that looks awesome i have a lot of wine bottles trying to something, with of course vases but i need desing ideas. Iwill i will this and hope they will come out as beautiful thank you for sharing
