More crystal fun!


This really has been fun! One night after the whole tree was covered with crystals, I bumped it ever so slightly, and a lot of the crystals fell off...I threw them make in the tray below and added a little water. The tree grew back, just minus a lot of color! It is all full again now.


If you want to try making some homemade crystals...there are a lot of recipes HERE!

Did you know you can make some from sugar and some from Borax? I am thinking of making some rock candy sugar stirrers for Christmas gifts! Inexpensive, but really SWEET!

We used to do this every Xmas with the kids. We had a kit that looked like Mount Fugi in Japan. It was so neat with trees and bushes around it.

You are having just too much fun with this little oddity. Maybe some food coloring will give the crystals some color.
