Why spend 30 bucks when you can make them yourself for 5? Last week I’m was browsing Amazon… feeding my addiction.
I can’t be the only one addicted to shopping on amazon, right?
My mission was to find a couple of mirror boxes/vases that I’ve been seeing everywhere. Soo… no one told me they were were 30 bucks! I needed 8 for the idea I had in mind… Call me cheap, but, I was not going to pay $240 PLUS shipping.
I mean these are pretty, but not $30 pretty and I wanted some without the panels.
So fast forward to yesterday. I went to the Dollar Tree, to ball out of control.
DOLLAR TREE WE MADE IT!!! (Lavigne Life reference, Grapevine for life!!!)
To my surprise I found Square mirrors. Then it hit me, I can make the mirror boxes myself!!!
Heres how I did it…
What you’ll need:
- 5 square mirrors, per box
- hot glue gun
- glue sticks
- super glue (optional)
- lay your base, mirror side up(the felt pads will prevent the boxes from scratching any surface!) and hold one of the mirrored pieces up to the edge of the base.
- once you’re sure everything is even and level run a bead of hot glue along the seam where the edges meet.
- Continue lining up and gluing the bottom and side edges of the mirrored pieces
I love these boxes in the bay window of my kitchen. The light reflects off of them beautifully and they compliment my vase. I only had time to do 2 last night but this weekend I’ll knock out the other 6 in no time!
Are you running out to your nearest dollar store yet?
