This craft shows you how to change a simple mirror into a decorative one. Using different paint colors and different beads, you can make a mirror to match any decor.



Possible items needed if there is not a hanger on your mirror:

  • 6 inches of string
  • 2 small "i" hooks for hanging
  • Directions:

    1. Wash any dirt off of your mirror frame.
    2. Then paint frame, taking care near mirror, if you get any on the mirror you can scrape it off once paint dries. You could also use masking tape.
    3. Let paint dry.
    4. Place spots of hot glue all around the frame where you want your bits of rock or beads. Press the rocks onto glue and let dry.

    Voila! A cute mirror that makes a nice gift or adds a nice touch to any room.
