A while back I put out the tease that I was going to teach you to make glitter at home. Now this is not like high priced German glitter its cheap glitter and you want to remember that when using it on projects but it did work perfectly last year on some large paper silhouettes that I really didnt want or have the place to store. What it is SALT !
In a large bowl mix a large amount of salt and the food coloring in the color you wish your glitter to be. You can mix the colors together to get different colors and vary the amount of color to get different shades of a color. Just be sure to get all the salt completely covered
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spread the salt out evenly over a old cookie sheet
(do not try this with sugar - sugar will melt salt wont)
Bake for 10 minutes and the cool......Homemade Glitter
This is great glitter for little kids because if they eat it it really cant hurt them !
