I tried a few different ideas for both faux hobnail milk glass and milk glass. First I will start with the adorable glass houses that is part of the Hearth and Hand line at Target.
I found them in black on clearance for 99 cents! The regular price is $9.99 and the white was still being sold for that price! I scooped several of them up knowing I would paint them in Spring colors.
I added the glue dots and then lightly spray painted them in pink and white. They are part of my Spring Mantel display and I just love them!
Next, I found detailed glass vases at the thrift store that were perfect with several light coats of white paint. The smaller bud vases are shown in the mantel display as well. These were 50 cents a piece! You can’t beat that.
I love the larger one shown here:
Now for the faux hobnail look, I took another thrift store glass vase and added hot glue dots to the vase. Once it was dried, I used several light coats of the Martha Stewart Milk Glass Paint.
While I’m happy with the outcome, it was very time consuming and took several coats. It does give a nice opaque finish though.

These faux milk glass pieces blend nicely with my real milk glass and are a lot less costly. I do tend to find pieces at the thrift store for great prices, but of course I love to try my hand at creating knock offs!

Your mantel is lovely. You got some great stuff from the thrift store. It's always amazing what a little paint can do.
