Mirror Mirror on the wall {DIY}

Here is a quick and simple DIY mirror that I did recently, with the holidays approaching you have probably seen a lot of beautiful reasonably priced plate chargers in the stores, I picked up two from the Myer home wares sale at 45% off $5.95 (steal) they are a light weight sealed plastic. I then purchased two coordinating size mirrors from the dollar store for $2.95.

This DIY literally takes 5 minutes (I think it took me longer to find my hot glue gun in my messy craft room).
1.       Firstly do a quick test and apply some hot glue to the back of the plate charger just to test the reaction, all went okay with my test.
2.       Liberally apply hot glue to the charger face in the centre and around the centre edges.
3.       Quickly applied the mirror face to the centre, wait for it….Ta da… a beautiful mirror.


 LOL It is hard to take a picture of a mirror without getting them camera or yourself in it, gym gear and all.




These mirrors are relatively lightweight so I fixed them to the wall with three 3M Velcro picture hanging tape (this stuff is super great "damage free hanging" I had some frames on the wall before and was able to pull them off with no trouble).

What do you think? $6.50 mirror for your wall? I hung one either side of our headboard to flank our bed.
