Fancy Plastic Spoon Mirror
When looking for a decorative and fancy wall feature, making one is super easy and inexpensive. Here's how I did a fancy plastic spoon mirror in less than an hour.
STEP 1 - Trace a large circle. Inside the large circle trace your mirror.
Step 2 - Cut all spoons as shown above. Use hot glue gun to glue around the small circle. NOTE: glue the spoons inside of the circle line so that when the mirror is placed on top it will cover the trimmed part of the spoons.
STEP 3 - Keep gluing the spoons as shown.
STEP 4 - If you glue a spoon and feel its off, remove it and glue again. at the end you should have something that looks like picture shown above.
STEP 5 - Sit the spoons on top of anything high off the ground so you can go around the spoons spraying evenly. (on this picture I placed it on the ground, therefore you can see the off tones when spraying)
STEP 6 - After 2 coats, this is the end result. I didn't want a dark gold.
STEP 7 - Since the mirror is small, hot glue worked all around the mirror and glued on top of the edges of the spoons right in the middle. NOTE: if your mirror is bigger, Hot glue gun may not work. Use 1 or 2 round cardboard and stick to the middle space of the spoons before gluing the mirror on top.
This is the final look after spraying silver. I also added little pebbles around the mirror with hot glue. (totally optional)
