I had a bunch of wooden beads from a decorative mirror that I was dying to do something with. Check out how I turned this simple $15 tray into a custom decorative mirror!
5 Minute DIY Decorative Mirror
I really liked the shallow shape and natural color of this tray. Since its not too deep it would sit well on a wall or shelf upright. The handles have a great little detail as well.
I picked up a $7 craft mirror at my local craft store. See how it will sit in the tray? The beads are going too look so good as a boarder!

Like I mentioned, my beads were repurposed. But I really like this cheap variety pack of beads here. You could get extra creative with all the different sizes!
Using the handy dandy hot glue gun I simply glued the mirror to the center of the tray and glued the beads around it to finish off that edge. This project literally took me 15 minutes!
I added my finished project to a photo ledge to balance out the rectangle frames and it turned out so cute!

What a great piece you have created. Something that can also be used in the bedroom for your favorite perfumes, in the bath for a place to put a wash cloth and some fancy soaps or on the table to use as a centerpiece. Beautiful piece.
