Colourful Salt Jars




Introduction: Colourful Salt Jars

It looks like sand art but it is actually salt!!!


Step 1: Things You Will Need

-2 Jars (one for mixing the colours and another for putting the salt in)
-Coloured Chalk (they can be any colour you like)
-A Funnel (This is completely optional, I just used one so i wouldn't get the salt everywhere. If you don't have one you can easily make one out of paper! Make a cone shape and tape it together, make sure the tip of it isn't too small or else the salt will get clogged up.)

Optional Decorations:

Step 2:

Use the spoon and measure how much salt you want and put it in the mixing jar.
Get your scissors out and open them as wide as they go and start to shave the chalk off in fine pieces into the same jar as the salt is in.
The more chalk you shave the bolder the colours will be.

Step 3:

Put the lid on and shake the jar around to mix the salt and the chalk together!

Step 4:

Grab your funnel (if you are using one) and pour the salt into the jar.

Repeat steps 2,3 and 4 until the jar is full. Remember to alternate the colours!

Step 5: Optional Decorations

I just tied a ribbon underneath the lid just for decoration you don't have to do this if you don't want to.

Step 6: Finished!!!

Now your Salt Jar is finished you can put it anywhere around the house or even use it as a mini table topper during Christmas!!!

    Need to do this, looks completely simple but amazingly awesome! Question: Can you use sugar as an alternative?

    Nice idea, could you make these to be used as bath salts, for gifting?
