This eye-popping mirror is the perfect Halloween decoration for your home!
Total Time: 3 hours
wooden mirror (mine is from Ikea)
googly eyes, varying sizes
green acrylic paint
wooden letters (E, E, and K)
black acrylic paint
glittery black paint
clear school glue
hot glue gun
masking tape, optional
Tape off the mirror with masking tape. Paint the mirror green and allow to dry; apply a second coat if necessary. Once dry, remove the tape. If there is any paint on the glass, it can easily be removed with a razor blade.
Using a paint brush, brush a small section of the wood with school glue. Apply googly eyes, then brush on more glue and repeat. For the best look, vary the sizes that you use. A few sets of large eyes will really stand out!
Once the glue is dry, carefully turn the mirror over and lay the ribbon underneath it with the ends wrapping around to the back. Secure the ends with hot glue.
Create a bow if you would like. The one I made was done by looping the ribbon back and forth twice, then gluing the layers in the center. I then wrapped a small piece around the middle and glued it in place in the back.
Turn the mirror back over and glue the bow into place with hot glue. I recommend tacking the long piece of ribbon to the mirror with a little hot glue underneath where the bow will be. This will prevent sagging. Add a googly eye to the middle of the bow if you want.
Paint your wooden letters with black paint; apply a second coat if necessary. Then apply a layer of glitter black paint. Allow to dry.
Glue the wooden letters onto your mirror where ever you like. Hang it up and enjoy!
This project could easily be done with a picture frame too. :)
