DIY Faux Cranberry Glass

I am obsessed with painted glass bottles and jars. I have seen so many beautiful projects lately; simple spray painted bottles, white paint inside of the glass resulting in a milk glass effect and Mod Podge and blue food coloring inside of the glass which makes beautiful sea glass.

I decided to try making faux cranberry glass. True cranberry glass is an art and the glass is typically hand blown. You can use Mod Podge and food coloring to create the look of cranberry glass. Use old jars and bottles for an instant faux cranberry glass collection. #SpringDecor #favoriteproject

    I have done this too, but you cannot put water in and use as a vase since the Mod Podge with dissolve. Could use a slim vase to drop inside for the water.

    I have a really old clear glass wine jug that has grapes & leaves embossed on it. Would putting the mixture INside show the embossing well or would it be better to paint the outside to show off the design?

    If you use actual glass paint (that needs oven curing) it won't scratch off. ~:)
