This is my first D.I.Y post! Although I always upcycle things at home, I never documented them because....well, I'm lazy. Sharing my D.I.Y ideas is part of my 2013 resolution, so I'm not gonna let you, or myself down! :)
I bought this mirror at Ikea, for about $1. 30. When I first saw this mirror, lots of ideas rush through my head. You can redecorate it with crumpled newspaper, mosaic, strings, anything that you can stick on it, or wrap around it, is possible. I wanted to make something personally and give it to someone as a gift. Turns out, the end result is not bad at all. :D
Hope you enjoy the post.
Step 1: Here's What You Need;
Mirror (Mine is W:26cm, H:26cm)
Brush or your old credit card
Place your string on the top right, hold it tight and start wrapping with coconut string.
