Flowered Mirror DIY

I often find inspiration at Anthropologie. There is so much eye candy there! Unfortunately, I can usually only window shop, but that’s OK with this crafty gal. When I saw this pretty flowered mirror on their site (for $128), I started thinking of how I could make my own budget version. I’m really happy with the end result!

I found my mirror at Goodwill for just 99 cents, but I see large rectangular mirrors at Dollar Tree all the time. You might just have some old, inexpensive mirrors already in your home that need an update. I purchased my flowers at Dollar Tree, but, again, you might have some old ones at home that you’re ready to part with.

Project Estimate:

  • Mirror, $1 and up
  • Silk flowers, $1 and up
  • Glue gun, on hand
  • Spray paint, on hand
  • Rhinestones, on hand or $1

Total: $2 and up

step 1

Step one: Cover the mirror with painter’s tape.

step 2

Step two: Remove the flowers from the stems. You may need to trim the remaining plastic on the back of the flower so it can be flush with the mirror.

step 3

Step three: Begin gluing leaves and flowers to the mirror frame. I decided just to fill in the corners, but you could fill the entire frame to more closely replicate the Anthro mirror.

Step four: Spray paint the flowers and frame. I used a metallic silver paint. If you’re often guilty of overspraying like I am, this project is for you. The more paint on the flowers, the better!

step 4

Allow the paint to dry, them remove the tape. I decided I wanted a bit more sparkle on my mirror, so I hot glued rhinestones to the flower centers.

I love my new mirror. It’s shiny, sparkly, and flashy. I hung it over the sink in my laundry/craft room to bring a little bling and pizazz to an otherwise dull space! And I did it all for $2 instead of spending $128 at Anthro. Not bad for a day of crafting.
