* LET'S DECORATE VALENTINE'S MIRRORS

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.

 I love to decoupage! Am I good at it! Fair to good I would say! If I did what I told others to do, I would be  better! For this Valentine's craft lets do mirrors!


                                        This one was done to leave space for personalizing!






This one has embellished hearts for an extra dimension!

Supplies: 
- unfinished mirror to decoupage




-white glue 
(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
-wax paper





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!


                             Happy Crafting!
