I was browsing the Anthropologie site when I fell in love with this mirror. Isn't it beautiful? It's out of my decorating budget but never fear! I decided to make one myself.
I found this mirror candle plate at Hobby Lobby. It was regularly $9.99 but, thanks to a sale, I got it for $5. I found this gold metallic trim at JoAnn Fabrics for around $2.50 and bought 2 rolls bringing my grand total to $10 and some change. I made a $250 mirror for $10!!! Bargain Queen!
Not only was this project inexpensive, it was easy! I simply hot glued the trim around the edge of the mirror. Then I cut equal lengths and glued them to create the scalloped look. I ended up using every bit of the trim. I probably should have bought three rolls but I lucked out and 2 was perfect for the size mirror I had chosen.
$250 vs $11
