Let me introduce you to this DIY Mirror Necklace. It's super duper cute and I can already see myself wearing it with every outfit, from casual to black tie formal.(:
In my mind, I knew exactly how I wanted this to look. I started with drawing the shape of the mirror I wanted onto the cardboard, just using my pencil. I went with oval, but any shape would work! Circle, square, even add a little handle if you want!
Once you have the shape drawn, cut it out. Depending on the thickness of the cardboard, you may want to sand the edges to make them smooth.
Time to paint! Choose a nice light gray and cover the top and sides. Before the paint dries sprinkle on the glitter.
As you let your mirror dry, use the ribbon to tie the cute little bow. Set aside.
When everything is dry, it's time to heat up you glue gun. Glue on the bow to the top. Flip the necklace over and glue on your small rock. This adds weight to it, because the cardboard is so light. The last thing is to glue on a little wire ring made of your wire.
&& LAST, BUT CERTAINLY NOT LEAST
