I have loved the mercury glass trend for as long as I’ve seen it floating around, but I’ve just never found exactly the right piece to buy or had the urge to try to DIY myself. When I stumbled upon these amazing faux mercury glass mason jars here on Consumer Crafts, I just knew I’d finally found the winning piece that I had to do something with! A little lace and rosettes made from corrugate paper strips made for the perfect accents. This rustic mercury glass DIY jar decor ended up turning out better than I had hoped and it’s so simple to put together.
- Gold Mercury Glass Mason Jar
- 1.5 in Wide Corrugated Cardboard Paper Roll
- White Doily Lace Tape
- White Card Stock
- Circle Punch (1.5 in)
- Craft Scissors
- Low Temp Glue Gun
Step One. To begin your DIY jar decor you will be creating a rosette out of the new corrugate paper strips. Cut a 16 inch long strip of the corrugated cardboard paper and accordion fold it at every three grooves in the cardboard for the entire length of the strip.
Step Five. After the glue has dried completely, press the top of the edge of the cardboard circle inwards to create a pinwheel. It’s going to want to jump back into a circle shape, so make sure to hold it down firmly!
