First of all let me tell you that my project is just the first of many others that are coming your way
 
I am honored to be among so many talented Bloggers.
…DREAMING BIG!
 
 
Here is what I came up with…
My Valentine’s Mirror.
Aww!
 
 
 
 
My plan was a little bit different in the beginning since I was aiming for some type of cool frame.
This is what I used. An IKEA mirror-frame that I already had,
 DecoArt Paint, glue gun and Valentine’s plastic necklaces. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
TUTORIAL

The first thing I did was paint the frame in white.
 
{ TIP: I always use a garbage bag to protect my table,
then when I’m done I throw the craft mess away inside of it. }

After a few coats of paint I added one light coat of Silver Glamour Dust from DecoArt.
I love this stuff because you get to see the white through it under the silver glitter dust.
So pretty!
 
 
 
While the glue gun heated up I took the time to cut a bunch of necklaces that
I found over at Big Lots. I bet the Dollar Store will have something similar.

 

 

To get the right size all I did was to put the necklaces on top
and cut it in each corner.

 

 

 
I ended with this…

The last step was to glue it!
I wish the picture could show how much the silver dust actually shines…

 

 
 
 
Here is a closer look!
 
 
 
 
At this point I thought I was ready to put a picture or something on top of the mirror
since my first idea was to use it as a frame.
When I came back with some craft paper I saw Mimi looking at herself in the mirror.
 
She looked so cute… and this thought crossed my mind:
 
” Oh Mimi! I could look at you all day!
 
…Wait!
I have an idea!”

I cut some vinyl!
 
 
 
 
I added it to the mirror and the project was complete!

Of course every one of my children took a turn as soon as they came back from school.
Even my hubby took a look.
 
…Sometimes I wish my kids would never grow.
So sweet!
