Haunted Mirror - An Eerie DIY Halloween Decor
Here's What You Need:
  • 1 Can – Krylon Looking Glass Silver Spray Paint
  • Tape
  • 1 – 8″ x 10″ Picture Frame
  • 1 – Image to fit an 8″ x 10″ Frame
How to Make the Haunted Mirror:
  1. Choose your Image.
  2. Scan Image and create an Inverse Image.
  3. Print out two copies – 1 Original Image, and 1 Inverse Image.
  4. Take Glass out of picture frame. Clean Glass very well.
  5. Tape the Inverse Image to the front or outside of the glass (image side facing the glass). This allows you to see exactly where your image will be once it is in the frame, and will help you during the spray painting.
  6. Place glass image side down on your spraying surface. You can see the image through the glass.
  7. Shake Krylon spray paint vigorously.
  8. Spray the entire glass with a fine mist of paint.
  9. Then add more paint in small spurts, especially to the areas around your image. You want there to be enough paint to create a mirror, but with a lighter spraying of paint on top of the image so that it shows through.
  10. Let the paint dry for at least one hour.
  11. Remove the Inverse image from the front of the glass and clean glass carefully.
  12. Place glass back into the frame–Glass side out, Painted side to the inside.
  13. Load the Original Image into the frame

      An inverse image is a negative image like the negative from a film camera or the reflection in a mirror. A reverse image.
