Hi fellow DIYer's! I am back and this time we will be learning about how to make your own mercury vases. I know this is a something that we have been seeing a lot of recently, I love the vintage feel of mercury glass. And instead of shelling out big bucks to cop a few of these, why not make your own!

Pier 1, Pottery Barn and a few other stores sell these for major bucks, and since I am a fan of creating  your own unique piece I figured I would give it a shot!

What you will need:
  • A wide mouth clear vase
  • Krylon Looking Glass Spray
  • Gold Plate spray ( optional)
  • Water bottle spray (oil and water mix)

 Clear Glass Vase

Coat the inside of the vase with a very light mist of the oil and water mix, to create water beads inside the vase. After this, spray a very light coat of the Looking Glass Spray on the interior of the vase. The trick is keep it light, don’t over spray. Just coat the surface once.

Bridesmaids Dresses- 50 Shades of Neutral

Instead of having your bridesmaids dresses all one color, how about mixing it up and being non traditional by having each bridesmaid wear a complementary color. This is easily done with a neutral pallet and works because they are all in the same color family.  I created this with the Dessy Collection Style 2882.

Love the effect!
