Materials needed to make 1 jar candle holder:
- 1 glass jar (I used a sturdy, old fashioned square jar I found at the Dollar Tree, you can use any type you prefer.)
- 2lbs Super Course Grain Himalayan Salt (or enough to fill your jar, this depends on the size of the jar)
- 1 small votive candle holder (small enough to fit inside the larger glass vase with enough room left between the votive holder and vase to fill in with about 1″ of salt all the way around the votive holder)
- Place the glass votive holder inside the glass jar, make sure it sits directly in the center of the jar (as depicted in the image to the right)
- Using a spoon or culinary scoop, carefully fill in the jar with Himalayan Salt up to the rim of the votive holder. Do not allow any salt to fall into the votive holder.
- Place a tealight, or scented votive candle (I used a cream colored, vanilla scented candle) in the votive holder and light!
You should now have a beautiful candle holder jar filled with glowing Himalayan Salt! These can be made very quickly and make wonderful conversation pieces. As you will see, the warm coloring of the salt creates inviting, festive candle light!
