Pour into a ziplock bag.  Seal, and mix the salt together with the chalk for an even color.  Add more chalk or salt as desired to get the color you are looking for.

Repeat.  As many times as you like for as many colors as you would like to work with!  As you can see, I got a little carried away.

Now for the fun part!  I found some great glass containers at the dollar store for this project.  These were perfect for showing off the layers of color.  Simply pour colors from your bags into the container in layers.  Spread them out with your fingers or a pencil, then add another layer.

The colored layers look amazing!

My final touch was to add a votive candle to each one.  These are perfect for colorful decorations in my house.  Because they are salt, I wouldn’t recommend them for outdoors.  They were certainly fun to make and would be a great project for the kids on a lazy summer day.

Oh, by the way.  If you aren’t into candles, another great option would be faux succulents.  They would look great in these containers.  (You cannot use real ones because of the salt).  But the best thing?  You never have to water them!
