DIY Mercury Glass

I was so excited to hear that our theme this month was mason jars because they are like little blank canvases. So many possibilities with these versatile little jars! Dress them up, dress them down, embellish, paint… anything goes!
A friend of mine recently put on a beautiful wedding for her daughter. She had done some amazing centerpieces for the tables at the reception, part of which were some flower arrangements in mason jars. She had somehow treated the mason jars to look like mercury glass and it was gorgeous. It was a much more romantic and luxe look than plain mason jars would have been. So I asked her how she did it and today I’m sharing it with you!
You need very few supplies: Looking Glass spray paint, a spray bottle with equal parts water & vinegar in it, paper towels and a mason jar.
Simply spray your mason jar with the vinegar/water mixture. Then spray a few light coats of the Looking Glass spray paint over the top. Allow to dry for just a bit and then rub off “bubbles” with your paper towel. You might also want to rub off larger areas depending on the look you’re going for.
What’s fun is you can experiment to get the look you want… and each jar will be totally different! You might even want to try spraying the Looking Glass paint first, then spraying the vinegar/water, letting it sit for a little bit and then distressing it with the paper towel. Lots of fun possibilities and looks to be had here!
I plan on using these for LOTS of different things but for now I added a painted burlap star and some twine to use them on my 4th of July mantel. I’m excited to get that all pulled together this year!
Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check back on the 10th of each month for the blog hop! I love seeing what all these ladies come up with, don’t you?
