The base is plywood and the mirror is an acrylic one covered with a protective film. I begin by glueing the mirror with PVA glue centrally onto the base.
How to Transform Your Old Crockery Into a Beautiful Mirror Frame
I love to recycle old unwanted or broken things to give a new lease of life so when I saw these online blank mirror love heart frames, I new exactly what to do with some old broken crockery.
Once dry I begin to cut some broken china into small pieces of tile with wheeled tile nippers remembering to wear eye protection against shards.
I gather various colours and textures but try and keep the sizes and thickness similar and colours that give a pinky red overall appearance.
start to glue around edge first.
It’s east to stick the lovely little china tiles around the Baird . I mix up the patterns and colours to begin to create a really nice vintage love heart frame.
Once all the way around I let it dry before the second inside later is done.
ince all the tiles are in position ans leaving the space where drilled holes are for hanging . It’s time to grout. I use ready mixed black grout and use my fingers to work into the gaps although it’s best to wear gloves. When grout is all covered it’s a clean up with wet wipes.
I peel away the film covering acrylic glass and thread a piece of wire into holes for east hanging.
I’m so happy with this little heart mirror!
