I've had this small mirror for a long time. It hung in my old office, it's simple, cute but simple. I always thought it was missing something, I wasn't sure what it was really.. but something was missing. It’s been following me around from cubicle, to office, back to cubicle and now my home. I didn’t really have a place for it, but knew I would find one. So when this challenge came up… Fireworks went off in my head. icon
TX Wendy. 😉

I’m not sure if I was the only one…but the real challenge was finding a cardboard roll of toilet paper. I've never wanted a roll to finish so much in my life. LOL

But I think it was worth it. Hope you guys like it and share. I will definitely try this in a larger scale soon. I was blown away with how much I liked the end result.
My patient. HA! icon
Cut the toilet paper rolls in thin sections
Hot glue them to create the shape you are looking for
Mock it up on the mirror
Paint - (next time I'll spray paint)
Let dry
Place thin amount of hot glue and glue them down. I mocked it up again then glued them one by one
Now you have a mirror with some pizzazz! icon hope you guys try it. :)
