Give an Old Mirror New Life Using Dollar Tree Glass Gems
I was about to donate this old mirror that I had purchased about nine years ago. It no longer was my style, and I had hide in the back of a closet. When I saw it I thought that it had allot of potential, and wanted to glam it up, without spending allot money. Then I had this idea of how I could make this mirror more of my style, by using some glass gems.
Wipe down the frame with a damp cloth and remove the mirror if possible. If you can't remove the mirror, cover with painters tape.
Spray paint the mirror frame with a color of your choice. This may take several coats of paint if your frame is dark, or you may want to use a primer first.
Once the paint has dried, you can begin gluing down your glass gems using the E6000 glue.
This it the pattern that I decided to glue down my gems.
You will fill in each section with the glass gems.
Allow the glue to dry 6-8 hours before inserting the mirror and hanging the mirror in your desired location.
This is the finished project.
