This mercury glass pumpkin idea looks so amazing anywhere you put it in your home. It was really simple to make and looks really professional. My best friend came over and went wild over it, I tried to tell her that I made it, and she would not believe me. I finally had to show her this video tutorial to make her really believe that I made it.
