How to make a DIY bubble mirror

Mirrors are among the most versatile decorating tools available; with careful placement, they can perform any number of useful functions. "Mirrors bring light and depth into rooms," designer Andreea Avram Rusu tells HGTV. "They're like decorative windows you can move around and place as you like."
Best of all, mirrors are neutral in style; it's the frame that is decorative, and DIYers know how to craft frames in any style, from classic to contemporary to country. To illustrate this point, we found a few wonderful DIY mirror frame projects:

To make this bubble mirror, the ladies at Creatively Living found a large piece of cardboard and added 6" of space around an existing round mirror with black frame. They glued halves of plastic Easter eggs and fake oranges onto the cardboard, and spray-painted the entire thing. Detailed instructions are available at Creatively Living.
The only item purchased for the bubble mirror project was the spray paint. Total cost: $5.
