DIY a statement making mirror in no time with this fun tutorial.

I’ve always really liked the idea of having a mirror right next to the front door to check yourself before you head out for the day. The best place for a mirror like this in my home is right across from the front door, and basically the first place you look when you walk in. This means that I would have to put in a statement piece that I really love and will make me smile when I come home.

Watercolor Mirror DIY

Not only do I love the way this mirror turned out, but it was a ton of fun to make. It’s a quick craft that makes a huge impact on a room, and there’s really no wrong way to do this. Instead of having a watercolor look around the edges, you could switch up the colors and make it look more like stone, use less ink to make it look even more like a watercolor, or tape off your mirror to give it more defined edges. Be creative and let your personal style show with this craft!

What You Need:

How to Make It:


Thoroughly clean your mirror and place it on a covered surface.


Add a couple of drops of alcohol ink to the edge of the mirror.



Add a couple of drops of blending solution and dab it with an applicator or a piece of felt until you reach your desired look.


Once you’ve got the look you want, apply some blending solution to a paper towel, and wipe off any splatters of ink you don’t like. Then, do the same with a glass cleaner to remove the blending solution.


Cover all of the mirror but your inked sections and take it outside or into a well ventilated area to give it a couple coats of acrylic sealer spray.
