How to Decorate a Mirror
Choose a color scheme
Choose a color scheme to complement the decor in the room your mirror will hang in.
Add a frame
A frame doesn't always need to be wood. You can create a frame by cladding the mirror’s sides with clay or plaster.
Embellish your frame
Select embellishments that introduce the color scheme you selected earlier. Beads, ceramic tiles, shells, or crystals work well.
Add hooks or a frame stand
Place a small mirror on a picture frame stand to display it. A large mirror will need hooks to wall-mount it.
Keep mirrors shiny and beautiful
Dust your mirror frequently and wipe it down with a wet cloth. This will ensure it always looks magnificent.
