DIY Rosemary Sea Salt Favors
(from Martha Stewart)
I made these recently for a dear friend’s bridal shower. They were fun to make and a pretty unique favor. When the salt is all gone, the spice jar can be reused for something else. This is also really cost effective if you have rosemary in your garden (I do).
What you need:
1 3lb box course ground kosher salt
Several bunches of fresh rosemary
10 airtight spice jars (I used these)
Printable sticker paper
Mod Podge (optional)
- Heat half of the rosemary and salt in a pan over medium heat, about 10 minutes. Allow to cool a few minutes and transfer to a covered container. Allow to sit over night.
- Make sure the rest of the rosemary is clean, fresh, and dry. If you’re using it fresh, let it soak in the sink and pat dry, and store on a paper towel in the fridge over night.
- Place a sprig or two of rosemary up against the edge of your spice jars.
- Pick the majority of the rosemary out of the salt that you’ve heated, and discard it.
- Fill the jars with the salt, around the fresh rosemary garnish.
- Print your desired message on sticker paper and affix to each jar.
- To seal against water, brush Mod Podge over each label and allow to dry about 30 minutes.
- I also added an emerald ribbon around the jar (not shown) to add a girly touch, because this was for a bridal shower.
