Thrift Store Makeover: Glass Jack O’ Lantern

So every Mon­day for the last sev­er­al months I have been shar­ing a week­ly Live Face­book seg­ment called “Makeover Mon­day” Where I share a week­ly thrift store makeover that peo­ple will love using in their home. From vas­es, to chairs and old dress­ers, there are soooo many ideas for thrift flips that will knock you socks off!

A few weeks ago I grabbed this lit­tle glass jack o lantern for a whole quarter…or maybe 50 cents, I can’t exact­ly remem­ber but either way, it was a great deal for some­thing with “good bones”

I shared the entire tuto­r­i­al of this project on Face­book Live where I demon­strat­ed how to use the mag­i­cal ingre­di­ent for this beau­ti­ful makeover…Rub N’ Buff. It’s a high­ly pig­ment­ed paste that trans­forms almost any sur­face, plus it comes in soooo many great col­ors. I am using antique gold for this lit­tle pretty.

Just look at this beauty!

The ambiance of this votive is per­fec­tion. There is some­thing so cozy about soft low light in the fall and of course this thrift store makeover is just the right amount of spooky too.
