How To Make Crystals

By Laura Kelly-Pifer


I absolutely adore homemade things.  So, when my girls, Bailey and Morgan, arrived from school the other day, each with a homemade gift for me, I was pretty excited.  Morgan had designed, carved out and sanded down a wooden rack that I’ll be able to keep my necklaces on.  And Bailey, had made me a crystal heart as shown in the above picture.

Not knowing how her crystal heart was made, I had Bailey explain the process and I am sharing it with you.  This is an EXCELLENT project to do with the kids or just because.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Borax, Jar, Tape, Pencil, String, colored Pipe cleaners

With these items, you’ll want to follow these steps.
1.  Shape the pipe cleaners into a shape of your choice and small enough that it will fit into the jar you’ve selected without touching the sides.  Some examples are hearts, circles, snowflakes.
2. Boil enough water to fill the jar.
3. Add boiled water to the jar, filling it so that there is still enough room for your pipe cleaner piece.
4. Mix in three tablespoons of Borax for every cup of water in your jar.  Do this one tablespoon at a time, and make sure everything is well blended.
5. Attach the pipe cleaner shape you made to a pencil with a piece of string. Submerge the pipe cleaner shape into the jar completely. Make sure it is hanging in the middle of the jar, and not touching the top, sides or bottom. The pencil should lay across the top of the jar, centered. Fasten it with a piece of tape, so it doesn’t roll back and forth.

6. Let it sit overnight and when you awake, you’ll have crystals.

If you choose to do this project, I would LOVE to see it.  Comment back with a picture of your design or crystal.  And, most of all…HAVE FUN!!!

With Love,
