My little family lives in an apartment building and our unit faces another apartment building. This means if we want any light, we have to give up a lot of privacy. I was ready to head out, spend quite a bit of money and buy stick on window frosting, which is apparently hard to put on and I really couldn’t budget in.
So, I did some research and decided to make my own window frosting! I made it and painted it on last night, so I couldn’t be sure how well it turned out, but when I woke up this morning, the sun was shining and look at how pretty it turned out!
It cost me less than $5 to make and it looks just like frost in the winter!
Here’s how to make some of your own:
- 1 cup Epsom salts/Bath salts (available at your local pharmacy, I found at Walmart)
- 1 ½ cup water
- A pot
- Liquid dish soap
- Small paintbrush (Optional, I used a dish rag)
Heat the water in the pot until it comes to a boil and gradually add the Epsom salts, stirring as you add. Once the Epsom salts have dissolved and are just sitting on the bottom (I couldn’t even see them), remove the pot from heat and add a couple good squirts of dish soap. Stir and let it cool. Once cool, use a paintbrush or rag/sponge and paint the solution along your window. Dry completely and you’re done!
It’s awesome because it adds lots of privacy, lets in the light and looks like actual frost, so I will definitely be using this in the future as a fun project to do with Ellie around Christmas-time
