Here’s what you need.
– 5″ Round Mirror from Dollar Tree
– 3 packs of wooden dowels
– E3000 Glue
– Painters Tape
– Spray Paint of Your Choice
First thing you need to do is glue down your first four dowels, a roadmap for the rest of them. After I had my four pieces glued I tried to glue the others to match across, but eventually I just eyeballed the rest. I spacing is more important; you don’t want large gaps. So if the sticks don’t line up, it’s no big issue. You could probably be really precise and measure everything out, I chose to only do that for the first four.
Let it dry for several days so the glue is set and then you are ready to paint!
Tape over the mirror and spray paint the dowels. I used a metallic spray paint so the dowels would have a shiny, bright finish.
Once it dries, you’re ready to hang it. This is going over/behind the TV in the living room. I glued a bracket to the back of the mirror to secure it, and you’re all done.
*The cool thing about this mirror is that it can be painted to match any decorum. Plus for $7 you can make a cool gift.*
*The glue can run you 4 bucks, but can work with multiple projects.*
