Epsom Salt mason Jar Snow Votives – Christmas Mason Jar.
I’ve been having cheesy Hallmark/Lifetime/Netflix Christmas-movie-filled days this month.
It started innocently enough. As a backdrop as I decorated the house …
you know, to keep my holiday spirits up as I wish and hope and pray for snow.
And now? Well, now it’s devolved into something much more … um … sinister?
I must admit that, as the Hallmark/Lifetime/Netflix Christmas-movie-filled days stacked up, I started to take a small bit of pleasure in watching my teen daughter squirm with discomfort as the cheese factor is turned up.
Like during the awkward kisses.
And (bonus points) when the lead male actor serenades the lead female actor.
And, yes, that happened. And, yes, my daughter fled the room in horror. 😉
Honestly, it all started out as a silly experiment. Just background noise …
Now it’s become a ‘thing.’ My thing. MY. THING. Ack!
And now I’m not sure what I’ll do with myself once the 25 days of Christmas TV movies ends!

Start with a coat of Mod Podge.
Generously sprinkle on Epsom Salt.
Let dry overnight.
I didn’t seal. Not sure what that would do to the Epsom salt? Admittedly, they are a bit messy …
but then again, aren’t most holiday decorations messy? 🙂
P.S. I’m going to share a list of my favorite super cheesy Hallmark/Lifetime Christmas movies (so far) this December. I mean, there is still 17 days to go in the 25 days of Christmas after all so this list just might grow … 🙂
1 – Angry Angel – a new, original Lifetime movie and my daughter begrudgingly agreed this is a winner (okay, winner among the Christmas cheese). Oh, and it was serenade-free.
2 – Holiday in Handcuffs – who can beat the combo of Melissa Joan Hart & Marion Lopez? The premise is ridiculous but they have great chemistry.
3 – Santa Baby – Santa Baby the original. Not Santa Baby 2 with Tori Spelling’s cheater husband.
4 – 12 Dates of Christmas – It stars now grown-up Zack of Saved by the Bell. Need I say more? Okay, Amy Smart as the female lead is charming too.

Loved your story!!! It was very entertaining for me and my daughters to read. We laughed out loud together, but they did admit that your daughter is correct, and they too would flee during those “cheesy moments!”
We all agreed we want to make your Epsom Salt Mason Jar Snow Votives and follow your blog for more creative ideas. Thank you for sharing a bit of yourself with your clever craft ideas!
LInda, these are so cute! And yes… I’ve been loving the Hallmark Christmas movies too! We have an almost teen granddaughter… she’ll be 13 in January… She pretty cool about watching them with her grandma though. 🙂 They are so easy to watch, always a happy ending, no ‘sleeping around’ that makes me squirm watching with my granddaughter, easy to watch with a great message. There’s enough ‘drama’ in real life, I like the easy watching to simply enjoy and relax. Have a wonderful Christmas! Liz (p.s. I used to have the blog ‘decorate with a little bit’ I accidentally lost that domain 🙁
I remember that blog – especially the “indoor window” project in the bathroom! I loved that bathroom!!! So much inspiration! 🙂
