Check out this DIY How to Make Mercury Glass. I love the look of mercury glass…but not so much the price tag that usually is attached. With this DIY How to Make Mercury Glass there is a way you can mimic the look of expensive mercury glass in three easy steps for a fraction of the price! Any clear glass item will work, so be sure to stop by your favorite $1 store to stock up. You could pair some votive holders with small candles for an excellent gift! This would make a great Mother’s Day Gift, Wedding Gift, Bridal Shower Gift, Teacher Appreciation Gift or Christmas Gift.
- clear glass items of your choice
- spray bottle of water
- Krylon Looking Glass spray paint (very shiny silver)
Step 1: Mist your glass item with water.
Step 2: Immediately spray the Looking Glass spraypaint over the water. The water will repel some of the spraypaint to give it the mercury glass feel.
Step 3: Let dry overnight.
