Altered Mirror Frame

It has been an absolutely wonderful 6 months since I joined the Simply Renee DT with the rest of the talented girls, enjoying every moment of my time here. As this is going to be my last post, I would love to thank Renee and Bobbi for their wonderful support throughout the months and I would assure the new girls that you will love working with them! :)

Today I'm going to show you what I did with a mirror frame which I got recently from Ikea. It's a very pretty mirror which sits perfectly on my scrap table but I feel it will look even better if I alter it.

To alter this mirror frame, I chose lots of Prima products to work on it. I started altering the frame by tying the Holiday Lights Glitter Spray branch to two corners of the frame as shown below.

As you can see from the close up picture, I secured the branch with gold colored thin wire to the metal frame, just to make sure it doesnn't fall off easily. Glue dots may not work properly as the branch weighs heavier than many of the other embellishment.

Once the branch is secured, I started working from the top of the frame and added more Prima embellishments such as flowers, leaves, pearls and crystals and stamped paper. All of these embellishments are secured using lots of glue dots.

Next, I worked on the bottom frame using the same type of embellishments.

And here is my completed mirror frame and I simply love how it turned out after altering it with lots of yummy goodies from Prima! :)

I hope you enjoyed what I created here and this altered frame idea can be done on other things like shadow box, picture frame, candle holders, gift box etc.

Please do come back here often as the new girls will be sharing lots of their wonderful projects in the months to come.

Have a great week ahead!

Hugs,

Leena
