DIY Faux Cranberry Glass

DIY Beach Art 5 days ago
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?

      LouAnne S I've found that if you put the mixture inside it is more translucent. On the outside and it covers the glass.

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

    Yes, they will still see it's a jar, but who cares? It's really pretty, and think what a nice vase it would make. Will the coloring wash off if you fill it with water?

      Angel - yes, unfortunately with this technique you can't fill it with water. It's purely decorative. You could put a small cylinder or tube filled with water inside the jar and then the flowers if you want to use it as a vase. Thanks!

      Carolyn ~ homework guess I could just use some dried or silk flowers then. Still a great idea.
