Mercury Glass Candle Holders
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!
- 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)
- Masking tape
- 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.
- 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.
- When the Looking Glass paint is dry, glue the pieces together and let dry.
- Cut the sticky felt the exact size of the bottom piece of glass and adhere.
- Fill with candle and enjoy.
HINT: Several of these clustered together make an amazing table centerpiece.
