Denim Mirror Frame

3 Materials
2 Hours

When I spotted this rather 1980’s round mirror frame heading for the skip I couldn’t help but rescue it for a revamp.

I love working with old jeans, my bedroom has denim curtains, denim rag quilt, denim cushions and a Victorian bedroom chair reupholstered in denim. Time to add a mirror to the old jeans theme.

If you can remove the mirror from the frame do so (my mirror was very firmly nailed in place so I worked with it as is).

Sand the frame to provide a key for the glue.

Then thoroughly clean the frame to remove all dust, I used a damp cloth to wipe it clean.

Cut out strips of denim seams.

The amount you will need will depend upon the size of you mirror frame. If you can mix the colours of the seams up a little.

Using a glue glue strips of the denim seams into the frame. I suggest placing the strips from the mirror edge to the outer edge.

You can then trim the edge all around the mirror.
