DIY Mirror Decor/ Revamp

Introduction: DIY Mirror Decor/ Revamp

In this instructable you will learn how to revamp your mirror, or any frame that you would like to change up! its a very easy DIY craft that you can gift or enjoy for yourself. I hope you enjoy this instructable and give it a go!

I wanted a body length mirror (because EVERYONE needs one)! So I bought mine at Ross for $14.00 I was so stoked to hang it in my room until I realized that it was kind of bland! So I decided to get crafty and revamp the border of my new mirror. That's when I went to Michaels and picked up some zebra print wrapping paper for $1.50; picking the paper was a very hard decision because they were all so pretty, but I love the way my new mirror turned out, and I hope you do too!
(You can also use scrapbook paper, but I prefer decorative wrapping paper)

Step 1: Materials

Materials used:

• Mod Podge

•Paint brush

•Decorative Wrapping Paper

• Masking Tape

• Scissors

• Mirror

• Ruler

Step 2: Apply Tape to the Inside of the Frame

Apply your masking tape to the inside border of the frame of your mirror so that you will not get any Mod Podge onto your mirror.

Step 3: Measure & Cut Decorative Paper

Make sure that you get a precise measurement of the length and width of your mirror. This will allow you to know how much of your decorative paper you need to cut for your mirror. Also, make sure that you cut enough paper to wrap around to the back side of your mirror.

Step 4: Adhere Using Mod Podge

Apply Mod Podge to the frame of your mirror. Then apply your decorative paper to the frame of your mirror, and add a second layer of Mod podge to seal the decorative paper to the frame of your mirror.

Step 5: Adhere Decorative Paper to Mirror Frame

Apply (pre-cut & measured) decorative paper to the frame of your mirror with Mod Podge as as shown in the previous step! Continue this process until all sides of your frame are covered in decorative paper.

Step 6: Complete!

I liked my Zebra Mirror so much that I made a second one! Eventually my entire room became zebra themed!
