I was recently inspired by a driftwood sunburst mirror from an earlier post, but it seems the beach at the end of my street isn't heavy on driftwood... just lots of shells, and I have another project for them. So this past weekend my husband and I started taking down our fence, and the weather quality of the pickets was just perfect for this project. You can use basically anything for this project so get creative. (I want to frame the mirror in my son's bathroom with Matchbox cars next.)
So first get yourself a mirror. If it has a backing and/or existing frame skip the next step. This one was a big 3' round that came with the house.
Next cut a thin piece of plywood an inch or two larger than the mirror. Attach hanging brackets to the back. Adhere mirror to the plywood. I used contact cement.
Use magazines to balance out the height of the plywood and start gluing on your branches/ pickets. The strentgh of your glue depends on the weight and size of your choice of material. You can get away with hot glue for little mirrors.
I weighed down the glued edges while they dried with books, etc. to make sure they stuck.
