On a recent visit to Anthropologie, I came upon a fabulous craft idea, that I had to bring home with me to try out! A festive Salt Shaker piece was easily thrown together for less than $5.00 ~ however being sold at Anthropologie for $25. (& they are sold out online)!
I managed to find all the supplies I needed quite easily! I found a set of shakers at Tuesday Morning for $2.99.; At Michaels I found the the tiny wrapped gifts for $1.99 (set of 8) and the bottle brush trees on clearance for .50 cent’s…
…and a huge bottle of Martha Stewarts glitter for $4. (w/coupon).
I squeezed Elmer's glue on the bottom of the jar and used tweezers to put the bottle brush tree and small packaged gift in place.
After allowing the tree and gift to dry, I sprinkled a fair amount of the glitter into the jar using a funnel so that I didn’t create a mess!
Because there are holes in the top of the shaker, I needed a barrier for the top of the jar to keep the glitter from coming out of the top. So I just used a simple hole punch and glued the paper to the top of the lid.
So easy & fun to make ~ now didn’t this turn out cute?
No water ~ just shake!
