|An unfinished mirror is the origin of this craft. I used a napkin for this post but copies of photos and magazine pages can also be used.|
This one has embellished hearts for an extra dimension!
- unfinished mirror to decoupage
(I usually buy it by the gallon and refill my small empty bottles)
-a foam brush or make-up sponge
-napkins with a Valentine's theme
First: cover the mirror 'frame' with glue, being careful to avoid the glass!
Most decorative napkins are at least 3-ply. Separate the top ply from the other 2.
Save the other 2 ply for clean up!
Carefully lay the top decorative ply on top of the slightly tacky top of the mirror frame. Cover with a sheet of wax paper and rub over the layer of wax paper placed over the mirror to smooth out the air bubbles! Remove wax paper. Let Dry!
Brush a coat of white glue over the dry mirror. Let dry. Don't worry. The glue will dry clear!
