Great summer hostess gift - fill a lantern (IKEA has good, cheap ones) with booze, cute napkins/straws, citrus reamer, mixer, lemon, and bar snack.
In a large bowl, mix to combine: 6 parts coarse sea salt; 3 parts epsom salts, to soothe tired muscles and reduce inflammation; and 1 part baking soda, to soften waters and alleviate skin irritation. Add a few drops of essential oils, and combine. Add a few drops of food coloring, until you achieve the desired shade. If you intend to present the bath salts as gifts, be sure to store them in a stoppered and labeled container to keep out moisture.

From the Book Lady, "cheap, plastic, transparent pony beads in a 12" metal cake pan. It took quite a few, as I wanted the 'plate' to be thick enough to support the weight of a cake. Then, I baked the beads at 425 degrees for 30-40 minutes...until all the beads had completely melted. I let this cool in the pan for about 20 minutes, then popped it out of the pan (it came right out...really!) Next, I glued it onto a dollar store candle stick with E6000 glue."
