Frosted Twig Bouquet Tutorial

Frosted Twig Bouquet
Frosted Twig Bouquet

Two tutorials in one week.... that's right! I'm on a roll here.  Frosting stuff with Epsom salts is slightly addicting.  I couldn't just frost pine cones and leave it at that.  I had to try it out on some twigs too.  Turns out they look lovely as a bouquet on my kitchen table :)

Please enjoy this simple tutorial for making a frosted twig bouquet:

Materials:
Twigs: washed and dried
Spray Paint ( I used Krylon Metallic Gold spray paint)
Elmer's Glue
Epsom Salt

Step 1: Lay out your twigs and spray paint them all over.  Let dry.

 Step 2:  Apply glue to the areas of the twig that you want "frosted".  I left the bottoms plain because they were going in a vase anyway.

Step 3:  Immediately sprinkle Epsom salts over the glued parts of your twigs.  It's best to do this over a large pan as it is quite messy :)

Step 4:  Let the salt dry on the twigs and then place them in a vase to enjoy!
