Anthropologie Inspired Mirror

Easy

I made this Anthropologie inspired mirror and it was so easy and definitely cheaper than the real thing. There is a round frameless version and that’s what I was going to originally make, but my mirror had a scratch on it. Luckily I had another mirror I could use instead.

This is square mirror from Anthropologie that I used for my inspiration.

I taped off the mirror and then used some small clear command clips where I wanted to attach the garland.

Hook the garland to the clips and use a hot glue gun to attach leaves and flowers along the garland.

When I was done with the leaves, flowers and garland, I used gold spray paint to cover the entire mirror.

Wait until the mirror is completely dry and then hang. I had every intention of adding the chain to the top, but didn’t end up getting that done.

    Why did you need the Command hooks? Wouldn't just gluing the garland in place have worked? The finished mirror is beautiful!

    Very pretty BUT ... how in the world do you dust it ?

      You can also invest in a cheap make-up brush that has very soft bristles. Walmart, Dollar Store, hobby store ... somewhere ... and use that to get dust loose before blowing. I agree with the characterization of "canned air" being much different than just a blow dryer.

      The mirror isn’t black. I took this picture with a black background so that the reflections wouldn’t distract from the actual mirror.
