Trendy Twine 12 Days of Christmas Day 10

Good Morning everyone, and welcome to Day 10 of our Trendy Twine 12 Days of Christmas. I just have to say what a FABULOUS 9 days so far, I'm a little sad there are only 2 days left after mine :( 
So for my gift giving inspiration I created a snowman candle holder. Can I just tell you that this was so much fun to make! Here's my snowman all lit up.
I purchased some dollar store round candle holders and painted them with mod podge. Next I placed both jars in a large bowl and began putting handfuls of epsom salt all over the jars. I let them dry and added buttons and a Trendy Twine scarf using Frosted Cranberry. But this is a gift so I had to package it just perfectly :)
The best way to give a gift is with some candy right? I filled the top with some fun candies!

I used TT's Cone Bags and more Frosted Cranberry. to package up some yummy chocolates.

This is such a fun and inexpensive gift to give and you could add another holder on top or even a fun little face too!


Stop by the store and grab these items and you can make some too :)

I would have never thought to use Epsom salt. It has to be so much easier than glitter. Thanks for the inspiration!!!
