I was challenged to make something from $10 or less at the store 5 Below.  I chose two kinds of bath salts, hot glue sticks and two bottles of clear nail polish. I cut "crystals" out of the glue sticks, then colored the bath salts and "crystals" with alcohol markers and then attached everything to the salt rock with clear nail polish.  My sister is a HUGE rock collector and I fooled her until she picked them up lol.













Thanks for looking!
