Make your own Glitter

Make your own Glitter


We use glitter in so many crafts at our house so I thought it was high time we tried a DIY version!

As it turns out, you only need 2 ingredients…that’s right TWO ingredients…do I have you intrigued? You should be…are you ready…

All you need is:

  • Epsom Salts and
  • Food colouring


Pour your desired amount of salt into a ziplock bag (one colour per bag).

Then add a few drops of food colouring (the amount you use, will depend on the vibrance of colour you are after).

Seal the bag, then squish & squelch the bag until all of the colour is distributed evenly.

Leave the bags open to dry over night and the next morning, you will have wonderful homemade glitter!
