Have ever tried to make ice frosted windows with Epsom salts? This is one of my favorite winter projects with the kids. We love the patterns that Jack Frost leaves on our windows. But, he doesn’t always visit every night especially with the new insulated windows. Now, you can let the kids enjoy the sight of frosted windows with this simple DIY project.

How to make Ice Frosted Windows with Epsom Salts

It’s easy to learn how to make ice frosted windows with Epsom salts.  If you are dreaming of a white Christmas, but the weather won’t cooperate, at least you can make your windows look frosty with this simple craft.

Materials

  • 1 cup of “light colored beer” (stale is best)
  • 4 heaping tablespoons of Epsom Salts

Directions

Mix Epsom Salt with stale beer until the salt stops dissolving. Apply the mixture to your windows with a sponge — for a realistic look, sweep the sponge in an arc at the bottom corners. When the mixture dries, the windows will look frosted.

For a kid friendly look that doesn’t involve beer, you can follow this process:

Materials

  • 1/2 cup of warm water
  • 1/3 cup of Epsom Salts
  • 2 drops of “blue” liquid dish soap

Directions

Mix the Epsom Salts with the lukewarm water until the slat is dissolved. Add one to two drops of blue dish liquid. Apply the mixture to your windows with a sponge — for a realistic look, sweep the sponge in an arc at the bottom corners. When the mixture dries, the windows will look frosted.

Easy way to give your windows a frosted look even if you don’t have a white Christmas! This will work even when the weather is hot so you can delight the kids with icy windows when it’s hot outside.

To remove either of the above just use a 50/50 solution of water and white vinegar and a sponge.
