1. Deconstructed mirror from a broken mirror
This pretty deconstructed mirror is the perfect blend of rustic and modern. Who would have thought that you could use a broken mirror for a beautiful wall decoration! The best part? This DIY cannot be any more simple. Check out the video to see how you can DIY this mirror for yourself.
2. Embellish a lampshade with mirrors
This lampshade is super glam and chic, perfect for any room that you want to add some girliness too. When paired with a wooden base, this style has just the right amount of shine without being too over the top. Own a hot glue gun? Then you can easily do this DIY. Check out the video for a step by step guide.
3. Storage box
This DIY mixes pretty with purposeful since it not only looks great but can also store things you don't want lying around (think: TV remotes, matches for lighting your living room candles, or extra coffee table coasters). Pro tip: when gluing the box together, make sure to lay down some scrap paper or newspaper. This will prevent you from getting wood glue all over the surface that you are working on.
4. Vase filler
This DIY is such an easy way to add some sparkle to any room, while still being subtle. It's also a great way to dress up your typical flower arrangement. After breaking up the mirror pieces, make sure to pick up the large chunks (with gloves on, of course!) rather than simply scooping up everything. This will allow you to separate the mirror pieces from the tiny dust-like remains to make sure your vase filler looks more polished.
5. Geo painted accent mirror
This mirror DIY is modern and gorgeous, but also unexpected! Rotating the wooden frame, rather than simply placing it over the mirror like a picture frame gives this painted mirror such an added touch. Pro tip: make sure to let the paint completely dry before peeling off the painters tape. This way the paint won't bleed or feather out.
Perfume bottle flower arrangements
Perfume bottles come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, making them perfect for holding a number of things, especially flowers. These flower arrangements would look so gorgeous sitting atop your bedroom vanity or in your bathroom.
Patterned vases
Instead of recycling all of your old glass jars and wine bottles, set a few aside to try making one of these gorgeous vases! You don't need anything but a hot glue gun and a can of spray paint.
Pegboard storage box
This project is brilliant if you don't have a lot of space. It will make your life more organized. Just follow along in the video below.
