Make a Tile-Framed Mirror

There were so many great projects in the CSI Project dollar store challenge. Here's one of the projects I chose as a top 10 winner: a tiled mirror made by Kelsey at Tattered and Inked. She used printed tiles from the dollar store and framed them around a mirror. I love this project because she took small dollar store components and combined them to make a piece with big impact. I love it when people have a vision and are able to carry it out. [how to make a dollar store tiled mirror]

Kelsey's photos show the mirror outside, and I think this would be an outstanding patio mirror, but it would also look great inside, too. I just love this concept!

Project Estimate:

  • 12 patterned tiles, $12
  • Square mirror tile, $1
  • Foam core or scrap plywood or MDF, $1 and up
  • Fabric, on hand
  • e6000 glue, on hand

Total: $14 and up

    This was a great pick! I’m still on the lookout for these tiles but haven’t seen them yet at my $1 store.

    Great idea! I haven’t seen tiles at my dollar store, will have to keep an eye out!

    Thanks so much for featuring my mirror! I’m so glad you liked it! :)

    I found the tiles in the candle/frame section of my dollar stores. They had some blue tiles with them and I had to go to three different stores to get enough to make the mirror!! Hope that helps in finding them if you’re searching… :)

    Another place to look for tiles is at your local habitat restore-great place to go for items and help out a great charity in the process

    I have a large mirror in my bedroom already on the wall. At the bottom it is messed up so this would be an excellent idea to cover the bad spot and all the way around. I can’t wait now to do this project. Fantastic idea, thanks!
