I found this really really cool DIY tutorial on how to make your own crystals. It’s really simple and will give you some very colourful decorative items to sparkle up your bedroom, living room or creative area. Now I have to tell you – this will take some time. So patience is important here. You won’t need too many supplies, but if you don’t have it in the house, this is what you’ll need to go out and get: some Borax, food coloring, pipe cleaners and fishing line.
Now basically what it comes down to is that you shape the pipe cleaners so that it fits into a glass without touching any of the sides. You hang it inside the glass, using some fishing thread and a chop stick or anything long and thin. Put some boiled water in the glass with some Borax and stir until the Borax is dissolved. Put the piece of pipe cleaner in the glass and cover it with something like a (dish) cloth.
Now all that’s left to do is to wait for at least five hours or do it at night and wake up to an amazing present! For more tips and the full tutorial, take a look at dollar store crafts‘ post! Look at the pictures below to see the result!
