  • Aluminum foil

Instructions: 
  1. Place glue all over one paper plate.
  2. Cover plate in aluminum foil. Flatten the foil. Let glue dry.
  3. Place some rock salt into each plastic zip-top bag.
  4. Add a few drops of food coloring to each bag and shake well until all the salt is covered in color. Pour out onto a paper plate and leave to dry.
  5. Once the plate with the foil on it is dry, cut out the pointy bits of the crown.
  6. Start in the middle of the plate and cut a straight line across the middle of the plate (do not cut all the way across - stop when you reach the rim of the plate.
  7. Cut another line across the plate to make 4 'slices'.  Then cut each of these again to make 8 'slices'.
  8. Now, once your colored rock salt is dry it should be all sparkly and jewel like.
  9. Use sticky putty to attach the salt into each of the bottle lids.
  10. Sprinkle each lid with different colored salt and push down.  Shake off any excess salt.
  11. Stick each lid onto each point of the crown.
