DIY: dollar store mirror wall artJune 4, 2014
I am quite the fan of Dollar Tree. I am always thinking up new ways to spruce up my home décor by transforming something ordinary into something extraordinary. Check out some of my other Dollar Tree adventures: my dollar store foam letters, my dollar store wall art, my dollar store foam stamps, my dollar store sensory bags, my dollar store foam bath letters, and so many more.
Well, this post today will take cheap Dollar Tree mirrors and group them together for a stunningly chic mirror wall art. By grouping these basic mirrors together, the finished product instantly looks more expensive. Here’s a sneak peek at the finished product.
DIY: Dollar Tree mirror wall art
- square board of pine, big enough for the number of mirrors you want to include (I used 4 mirrors, so my board was about 2′ x 2′. Keep in mind that it’s fine if the mirrors hang over the edge of the board, because the board won’t be seen anyway.)
- rectangular board of pine, 1″ x 2″ x 3′
- fabric for covering the pine rectangle
- picture hanging wire
- staples & heavy-duty staple gun
- four dollar store mirrors
- heavy-duty construction adhesive
- two screws
- Gather your supplies.
- Using picture hanging wire and a staple gun, attach several inches of the wire to the back of the pine square to enable hanging of the wall art.
- Cut the fabric to fit the pine rectangle. Staple the fabric along the back of the rectangle.
- Turn the rectangle over and make sure the fabric is taut and smoth. Iron it, if necessary.
- Using two screws from the back, attach the pine rectangle to the pine square. Align the rectangle with the top edge of the pine square.
- Turn the pine square over again. Adhere the mirrors onto the front of the pine square using a generous amount of construction adhesive. Make sure the mirrors are centered and aligned perfectly.
Hang up your finished piece. Admire your work!
