DIY Faux Mercury Glass Mason Jars

by - 11:11 AM

Looking for a quick, inexpensive gift idea for the holidays?  How about these sweet faux Mercury glass Mason jars...
I've posted about the faux mercury glass technique before.  I, myself, dug it up on Pinterest.  Basically you need a can of Krylon's Looking Glass spray paint and a spray bottle with 50/50 water and vinegar mixture.
You spray a few coats of Looking Glass onto your Mason jar and let dry.  Then you follow up with a few spritzes of your water/vinegar mixture and then wipe in random spots for a "Mercury glass" look.  Follow up with one more coat of Looking Glass depending upon your tastes.
I added a little vintage lace and bling to mine, and these adorable Mason jar tops I picked up from Target (they were only a few dollars each if I remember correctly).  Add tea light candles and you have a beautiful gift for a friend, co-worker, etc. that won't break the bank.
