Candle Holders Ala Dollar

Lately I've been seeing a lot of these Dollar Store candle holders on Pinterest.
No real tutorial needed.  I just used E-6000 and glued them together.
One suggestion.....You might want to get out a level when you are gluing them.  One of mine is a bit wonky.  The glue is thick and it is easy to end up with it thicker on one side than the other.  You then have a slightly leaning candle holder.
Here is a terrible picture of the final product.  (A photographer I am NOT!)  I'm going to use mine for the Senior Adult Christmas luncheon at church and I'm using Epsom Salt as the filler.  In real life it is actually very sparkly, snow like and pretty. 

Not bad for a $2 investment!

A great idea and I never would thought of using Epson salt. Do I get this kind of salt at the drugstore?

Yes! Epsom Salt is used for soaking injuries. I think it is also in bath salts. You can find it in the drug section of most grocery stores and drug stores. I wish I could have captured the fact that it sparkles in the photo.

I saw an Epsom salt project like this on Pinterest too but didn't realize it could sparkle. Thanks for giving us the inside scoop!
