6 Unique Ways To Dress Up Your Mirror

shares

Mirrors are amazing things; they add character, give illusion of depth and give practicality to any wall. There can be no shortage of mirrors in any home, so why not make them look extra special?

Add a paper mache frame

Grab some mod podge, fashion some shapes with newspaper and sculpt away! It’s a nifty DIY project that almost anyone (with a bit of patience) can do and it makes for an awesomely unique mirror decoration. If you find the paper mache too dull, don’t be afraid to add some colours with acrylic paint or watercolour.

Although this one maybe a bit tricky, it doesn’t have to be surrounding the mirror in a uniform manner. Grab little mirrors (excavate your make up mirrors) and stick them around the frame. Not only does it give the illusion of a bigger mirror, it also gives your existing mirror a splash of quirk.

Add string lights

String lights can do wonders for any part of your home, especially your reflective surfaces. Reflection from the light gives you double the brightness, and the glow will add character and warmth to the surrounding area.

It might be difficult to find seashells this clean and uniform on the beach, but thankfully there are craft shops with ready shells for your easy purchase. Alternatively, you could source for the shells yourself each time you visit the  beach and bring back a momento each time. Think of it as a scrapbook you look at every day.

Stick raw wood around the frame

There is no shortage of scrap wood – it just takes patience to sanitise them and sand them down (if you wish). Next, all you need is a hot glue gun, a saw perhaps, and a weekend to assemble it together. It’s well worth the effect when done right.

Attach pom poms and paper flowers

Real flowers would be ideal and nice, obviously, but no one wants to keep changing their frame every week. Replace them with real-feel flowers, paper pom pom decorations and anything that suits your whimsy.
