Last December, I made jewelry and Christmas bulbs to sell at several craft fairs. For the jewelry I needed a mirror so the ladies could see what the necklace's looked like when they tried them on. I picked up a big hand held mirror at Walmart for $2.00. It was not a pretty mirror, so I gave it a make over so that it would look nicely on the table. I felt really happy how it turned out, and made Olga one for Christmas in black and white (which was the color scheme of her room), and just recently picked up these two smaller mirrors at the dollar store and re-did them. They are easy to make, with scraps of trim and ribbon, garage sale odds and ends.
A cheap dollar store mirror and scraps of trims.
Hot glue trim around mirror.
On this one I hot glued some garage sale pearls. (Sorry about the blurry picture).
I wrapped and glued ribbon around the handle and then had enough left over to glue a little more ribbon around the mirror next to the trim and pearls.
The final product.
You can glue pretty material to the back, or paint it or leave it plain if the color goes with the trim.
