My oldest daughter has been wanting to redo her room again. She started off with lady bugs when she was a baby then we did Dora when she was in preschool. And now in first grade she is wanting something more grown up (come on she is getting too big for Dora already, where is my pause button?).
I am not ready to change her room yet, so in the meantime I thought we could start changing some of the rooms décor to things that are more “grown up” (as my daughter would say). And that is how this project came to be. We say this mirror in the store and she decided she needed it in her room.
Last month we tried out some Martha Stewart Glass Paint and it worked so well that I thought why not decorate the mirror with it! I have to say these window clings we used were so much easier than I thought they would be. My daughter really had so much fun painting them and sticking them to the mirror. Once painted you just peel them off and stick them to a clean glass surface, easy peasy. My daughter even changed her mind on the placement of the flowers she put on the mirror and she just peeled them off and put them back. We have had no issues with them peeling off and it has been a few weeks already.
My daughter is so proud of the mirror the flowers look so great on it, and no one can believe she made it herself.
- Paintable Clings (we used the Martha Stewart ones)
- Glass Paint
- Rubbing Alcohol
Fill in your window clings with your glass paint.
Once the paint is dry on your clings, clean your mirror with rubbing alcohol (this gets it ready for you to apply the clings.
Simply peel and stick your clings to the mirror (I know SUPER easy!)
Now you are ready to hang your mirror on the wall
