Cheap and Easy Mercury Glass Ornaments from Hobby Lobby for only $12!

I have been dying to have mercury glass ornaments on my tree for a few years now, but at $34.50 for a set of six ornaments from Pottery Barn I just couldn’t justify the cost. I had seen several tutorials for DIY mercury glass ornaments so I set out to Hobby Lobby to get my supplies! While in the Christmas crafts section, I happened upon a box of 4 shatterproof mercury glass ornaments for $7.99 that were on sale for 50% off!!! SOLD!!

I got a dozen mercury glass ornaments that are childproof (also a HUGE plus) for $12! I couldn’t believe it! They were right next to the clear plastic ones and were also THE SAME PRICE! These have saved me so much time and money!

When I got them home, I decided to paint the tops of them with some Rust-Oleum Oil Rubbed Bronze Spray Paint I had in the garage to make them look more like the high-dollar ones you can buy at Pottery Barn! I just strung them up on some twine in the backyard and sprayed 2 light coats on them! That’s it!!

I cannot wait to see these hanging on my tree this year! You will have to wait until after Thanksgiving to see them on my tree, I am having a hard time holding out decorating the entire house for Christmas but the hubby insists that I wait! So for now I will just be content working on some Christmas decoration projects in preparation for the end of the month!

Have you started decorating yet, or are you waiting until after Thanksgiving?
