DIY Mercury Glass Ornaments!


Last‎ year‎ I‎ shared‎ this‎ simple technique but‎ I‎ wanted‎ to‎ give‎ you‎ a‎ detailed‎ tutorial‎ since‎ I‎ love‎ these‎ so‎ much!‎ 

⁣The‎ KEY‎ product‎ here‎ is‎ the‎ Mirror Spraypaint! ‎It’s‎ truly‎ what‎ helps‎ to‎ give‎ that‎ mercury‎ glass‎ look!‎ Otherwise‎ I‎ just‎ used‎ spray‎ paint‎ I‎ had‎ on‎ hand‎ and‎ any‎ clear‎ ornaments‎ will‎ do!

⁣𝙃𝙚𝙧𝙚’𝙨‎ 𝙬𝙝𝙖𝙩‎ 𝙮𝙤𝙪‎ 𝙣𝙚𝙚𝙙‎ 𝙩𝙤‎ 𝙙𝙤:

⁣𝐒𝐓𝐄𝐏‎ 𝟏-‎ Start‎ by‎ setting‎ up‎ your‎ supplies‎ and‎ taking‎ the‎ hanging‎ tops‎ off‎ your‎ ornaments‎

⁣𝐒𝐓𝐄𝐏‎ 𝟐-‎ Using‎ the‎ Looking‎ glass‎ paint,‎ add‎ 3‎ sprays‎ into‎ your‎ ornament.‎ You‎ want‎ to‎ work‎ quickly‎ here‎ so‎ it‎ doesn’t‎ dry‎ in‎ one‎ spot,‎ so‎ always‎ keep‎ moving‎ your‎ ornament‎ around!‎

⁣𝐒𝐓𝐄𝐏‎ 𝟑-‎ Immediately‎ add‎ 2‎ sprays‎ of‎ the‎ 50/50‎ vinegar/water‎ mixture‎ into‎ your‎ ornament‎ and‎ swirl‎ it‎ around.‎ Use‎ your‎ blowdryer‎ while‎ swirling‎ your‎ ornament‎ to‎ dry‎ whats‎ inside.‎

⁣𝐒𝐓𝐄𝐏‎ 𝟒-‎ Set‎ your‎ ornament‎ upside‎ down‎ on‎ some‎ paper‎ towel.

⁣𝐒𝐓𝐄𝐏‎ 𝟓-‎ Once‎ dry,‎ repeat‎ this‎ process‎ using‎ gold‎ and‎ then‎ black‎ spray‎ paint,‎ each‎ followed‎ by‎ the‎ vinegar/water‎ mixture.

𝐒𝐓𝐄𝐏‎ 𝟔-‎ Keep‎ going‎ until‎ you‎ get‎ the‎ look‎ you’re‎ going‎ for-‎ I‎ did‎ 2‎ rounds‎ of‎ all‎ 3‎ spray‎ paints.‎

⁣𝐒𝐓𝐄𝐏‎ 𝟕-‎ Add‎ gold‎ rub‎ n’‎ buff‎ to‎ the‎ ornament‎ tops‎ (you‎ could‎ also‎ just‎ spray‎ paint‎ them‎ gold‎ since‎ you‎ already‎ have‎ that‎ handy!)

⁣𝐒𝐓𝐄𝐏‎ 𝟖-‎ Use‎ some‎ velvet‎ ribbon‎ for‎ hanging‎!

⁣I‎ created‎ most‎ of‎ these‎ last‎ year,‎ but‎ love‎ how‎ different‎ some‎ look‎ this‎ year!
