Mercury Glass Candle Holders

By:

I have been coveting candleholders like these for years. The true antique versions are way out of my price range. Fortunately I’ve figured out a way to make my own version for very little money and I can have as many as I want. Plus, let’s just face it, they are beautiful and super easy to make. Just don’t tell anyone the secret, OK!

Mercury Glass Candle Holders


Materials:

  • Various glass pieces from the thrift store. Try different size vases, large dessert dishes and even light fixtures that are clear can work.
  • Household Goop Glue
  • 1 Can of Looking Glass Paint from Krlyon
  • Newspaper and outdoor space in which to work
  • Sticky felt for the bottom (so they don’t scratch the table)
  • Scissors
  • Masking tape

Instructions:

  1. Experiment with the different glass pieces. Groups of 2 and 3 work best for this. Stack them and see how they might look glued together.

  2. Once you figure out which will be glued together, spray the insides of each piece with the Krylon Looking Glass paint until you get the desired reflection.

  3. When the Looking Glass paint is dry, glue the pieces together and let dry.
     
  4. Cut the sticky felt the exact size of the bottom piece of glass and adhere.
