When we found this DIY idea originally, we wanted to create a makeup brush holder, but after completing this with a few jars, its seems the possibilities are endless! You can use these jars to hold your makeup brushes, to store your favorite rings or to display a lovely bouquet! Check it out, it’s so easy!
Step 1: Supplies
Variety of mason jars (Michaels, Target, old jelly jars)
Metallic Spray Paint- To get a true mercury glass effect, use paint meant for glass. Our spray paint was not specified for glass.
Spray Bottle- half water, half vinegar
Painters Tape- if you want to create stripes.
Step 2: Spray Away
Set up your newspaper and spray your jars. We did ours a couple different ways. We did the small one in gold on the inside and outside, another with silver on the inside and gold on the outside, another with silver in and out and the last one we created stripes with painters tape and sprayed the outside with silver.
After you have sprayed with the paint, spray with the vinegar water solution
After you have sprayed with the vinegar water solution let it sit for a few minutes then gently pop some of the bubbles with paper towel. This was a little tricky on the inside of the glass, so after a few tries, we gave up on this step, lol!
Step 3: Let them dry then voila, you are done!! Here’s the finished product
1) Silver inside and out 2) Silver stripes 3) Silver inside, gold outside
Perfect for my rings!
