I love to gawk Anthropologie’s website.  There is so much eye candy there!  Sadly, I can usually only window shop, but that’s OK with this crafty gal.  When I saw this pretty flowered mirror on their site (for $128), I started thinking of how I could make my own budget version using thrifted items from Goodwill San Antonio.  I’m really happy with the final product!

I found my mirror at Goodwill for just 99 cents.  The flowers are a mix of Goodwill purchases and Dollar Tree items.

Supplies:

  • Mirror
  • Silk or Fabric Flowers
  • Glue gun
  • Spray paint
  • Rhinestones

Step one:  Cover the mirror with painter’s tape.

Step two:  Remove the flowers from the stems.  You may need to trim the remaining plastic on the back of the flower so it can be flush with the mirror.

Step three:  Use a hot glue gun to attach the leaves and flowers to the mirror frame.  I decided just to fill in the corners, but you could fill the entire frame to more closely replicate the Anthropologie mirror.

Step four: Spray paint the flowers and frame.  I used a metallic silver paint.  If you’re often guilty of overspraying like I am, this is the project for you.  The more paint on the flowers, the better!

Allow the paint to dry, them remove the tape.  I decided I wanted a bit more sparkle on my mirror, so I hot glued rhinestones to the flower centers.

I love my “new” shiny, sparkly, and flashy flower mirror.  I hung it over the sink in my laundry/craft room to bring a little bling and pizazz to an otherwise dull space!  And I did it all for $2 instead of spending $128 at Anthro.  Not bad for a day of crafting and time spent shopping at Goodwill San Antonio.
