These Crystal Candles Are Magically Easy To Make

Double, double, toil and trouble...

Posted on

Here's what you'll need:

Mason jar lid and band, $6.99

Hot glue gun

Small nail


Wire, $4.71

Superglue, $8.15

Alum powder, $8.89


Food Coloring, $7.96

Heat-safe container

Clear coat spray, $3.86

Tea candle, $9.82

Eye of newt and toe of frog (JK)

2. Use a hammer and nail to poke a hole through the center of the top of the lid.

Make sure to perform this on a disposable surface. Don't go around poking holes through the dinner table.

7. Wrap the wire attached to the mason jar lid around a pencil around 6-8 times. Lower the lid into the container.

You want the leftover wire to be long enough that the lid is submerged in the mixture, but not hitting the bottom of the cup.

8. After leaving the lid submurged overnight, pull it out. Dump the mixture out and replace the lid in the cup to let it dry.
