Hi friends!!!! I hope you’re having a great week so far!!!
Today, I am so excited to be joining a group of talented bloggers for a fun DIY ornament blog hop, hosted by Jen from Tatertots & Jello
I am sharing how I made these faux gold mercury glass ornaments
I have seen so many different ways to create a faux mercury glass look, this is the method that I used and love how the ornaments turned out
DIY Faux Mercury Glass Ornaments
What you’ll need
• Clear glass or plastic ornaments
• Gold or silver spray paint
• White vinegar
I started by taking the tops off each ornament. I then placed each ornament on a skewer stick that I placed in some styrofoam so I could paint them easily. I painted the tops separately from the ornaments.
Start with a coat of gold or silver spray paint. I decided to go with gold paint to match my decor. Silver is so classic and also so beautiful!!
As soon as you are done spray painting the ornaments, while the paint is still wet, mist them with white vinegar
After you have misted the ornaments with white vinegar, spray another coat of gold spray paint directly on top of the vinegar.
After the paint was mostly dry, I picked up each ornament and rubbed it in a cloth, popping any little bubbles of vinegar that were left behind.
If you look closely you’ll even see that the vinegar helped create spots aged green patina.
