After her daughter’s wedding, Jeanie from Create and Babble found herself with several clear glass vases on hand. She decided it was time she jumped on the mercury glass train and grabbed her can of Looking Glass spray paint. Now we’ve all seen this done a time or two, but I love how Jeanie took it a step further by creating a pattern on the glass with glue. You’ll have to pop over to her site to see exactly how she did it!
