I found an old, orange hand mirror in a bag in the attic. Instead of tossing it, why not turn it into something brand new?!
Paint the cover of the mirror any color you want! I chose black.
After the paint dries, trace a neat circle (or whatever shape your mirror is in) smaller than the actual mirror! I didn't want my whole mirror covered in gems and such. This way when you go to glue on the pearls and charms, the shape is already there for you to work around.
Start gluing on whatever you want on the front! A friend of mine used tiny, tiny mirrors, which turned out super cute! I decided to just use old pearl beads I had stored away and a few buttons.
NOTE: Make sure the mirror is flat when gluing on your things, or else they will slide out of place, possibly dragging the paint with it!
After the all that has dried, if there are any glue strings just take a blow dryer to the mirror and they will vanish! Enjoy!
