this mirror, and it is a perfect craft for beginners. Have your tween or teen create
this Mod Podge mirror. It will be a perfect addition to place on their dresser.

the wood portion on the frame with Navy paint. Allow to dry. Add a second
coat of paint. Let dry.
2. Cut the flowers
from the scrapbook paper. For this design we just applied the flowers to
the lower corner. Coat the back of the papers with Mod Podge. Position
the papers onto the front corner of the mirror. Use your fingers to press
any air bubbles. Allow to dry for 15 min. Topcoat with a layer of Mod
Podge. Smooth your brushstrokes. Apply the Mod Podge to the entire
frame to create a gloss finish.
3. Hot glue
ribbons around the outer edge of the mirror. Glue rhinestones to the front
of the frame.
