Mirror With Small Mirrors ALL Around!

I just love this mirror....it shines and sparkles so pretty!
All you need to make this mirror is:


1 Package of skewers (you can purchase these at your grocery store)


1 5 mirror (craft store)


1 5 Embroidery Hoop (craft store)


Rustoleum Mirror Finish


1 pkg assorted small craft mirrors (craft store)


1 pkg medium craft mirrors (craft store


Hot Glue


Wire for hanging


I started off by painting the embroidery hoop and skewers. A easy way I found to spray the skewers was by poking them about 1/2 into a piece of Styrofoam I had. You only need one of the embroidery hoops. (one without the metal).


I then traced the mirror onto a piece of cardboard.This cardboard circle now becomes the back of the mirror, and what you will glue the skewers and mirror onto. I took a 4 inch piece of wire and poked both ends ( about 1 apart) into the cardboard, through to the back side and twisted ends. This creates a loop to hang mirror. I then began hot gluing the skewers, pointed end, onto the cardboard. I alternated the skewers into 2 lengths. When I was finished putting the skewers on, I glued the mirror onto the the cardboard with the skewers.


I then glued (and be very careful doing this so the glue doesn't show) the embroidery hoop onto the mirror.


I glued the small mirror circles all around. I put this by my front door. The sun shines in through the window, and there is so much sparkle.


I hope you enjoy doing this project....so fun!
Pics don't show very well how much they sparkle. Oh my do they sparkle from the light. So beautiful. I am so proud of myself. Check out my other projects at: https://kelleysdiy.com/

    Why do you need the embroidery hoop? Does it leave a space between the mirror and the cardboard where the skewers go in? Thanks. Love it.
