Tutorial - Modern Feminine Mirror
This tutorial was originally posted on papernstitch, and it was so cute and easy to make that I had to share!
Tools and Materials
Mirror (framed or unframed), paper doily, frosted glass finish spray,
How do I make it?
1. Clean mirror with soap and water to remove any debris or dirt, and let dry.
2. Choose a paper doily that works for the size mirror you have. This
doily is about a third of the size of mirror. On the backside of the
doily, place double sided tape all over. You will want to overload it
with tape so that you can stop the spray from going into areas you
don’t want it to be. But you also want to be sure not to put tape over
any areas that are suppose to be “open” in the doily. Then turn over
and secure to the mirror anywhere you wish. Remember: The area you put
the doily, will be the only spot in the mirror you will actually be
able to see a reflection when we are done.
3. Place mirror down on flat surface. Shake frosted glass spray
according to directions and then spray 7-12 inches away from the
mirror in even, sweeping strokes. Thin layers are the best way to go
about this to avoid drips and other inaccuracies. Wait for each coat
to dry (about 15-10 minutes) before applying the next coat. This
mirror took four coats.
4. After the last layer is completely dry, gently remove the paper
doily and double-sided tape from mirror. Clean with damp cloth and you
are ready to hang.
