5 Easy Steps To Create A Beautiful Wall Mirror With Little Money

(gentle techno music) – [Narrator] Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the most fabulous of them all? Hi guys, welcome back to my channel, it’s Tresha and I have
another DIY project, how to make a wall mirror,
and this is the final result, so if this is something you’re interested in seeing, just keep watching. (gentle techno music) Here is what you’ll
need, 15 circle plaques, a ruler, 15 octagon-shaped mirrors, mending plates or wood trim, Goof Off, wood glue, foil metallic spray paint, Rapid Fuse glue, primer, and a paint brush. So first we’re going to start by removing the sticker labels. Second, we’re going to mark the center of each of the circle plaques. Next, we’re going to space the plaques, so I have three going across
and they are one inch apart. So now we have to adhere the wood trim, and I’m using Titebond
Ultimate Wood Glue for that, and I’m just gonna put on each of the ends of the Popsicle sticks that I use. And what you want to do is just glue it to both of the plaques
that are spaced apart, and I just have on three
going across and then on five going downward, so you want to put your sticks going downward as well. I highly recommend if
you see in ‘upper corner, these are mending plates
instead of the wood sticks, it gives it more stability,
and I thought about that after I had finished the project. Now it’s time to apply the primer. I’m just stirring it up, and then just painting
it onto the plaques. (techno music) You wanna let this dry once
you finish, just let it dry for at least an hour
before you spray paint it. So at now, it’s time to spray paint. I’m using Krylon foil metallic
spray paint here and silver, and I’m just shaking it up for
a minute a lightly spraying, and I use about, I did about two coats. It dries in about an hour. So now you want to remove the sticker and the felt pads that are
on the back of the mirror, I got this from the Dollar Tree, and I’m using Goof Off for this, and all you do is just spray it on there, wait for a little bit,
and then just peel it off. So now, I’m using Rapid Fuse to glue the mirrors to the plaque. It says it bonds to virtually everything, but I am wary of that, but in this case it does bond well to the plaque. All you have to do is clean the mirror and then you are done, and
you have a fabulous mirror that you can put on a
wall, pleasure friendly, simple, easy to do weekend project. So if you liked this

  16. Hi darling, so i want to try this this weekend but need a little clarification. So I'm using 20 8" square, beveled mirrors and I'm going to adhere them to 9-10" round plaques and figured because it's going to be so heavy I'll need the metal instead of the wood sticks so my question is, how thick do you think the plaques should be since I'm going to have to screw into them? I hope you can answer this or @ least suggest something, even if it's a change i need to make…I'm flexible lol. Thanks hun for your response 😺

  17. Very beautiful idea,thanks for sharing! But my question,I wonder how u install on the wall once all done? I am so confused,Much appreciate if u can share that too 😊

  18. Very cute.Β  I think the wood circles should have been sanded prior to use, would have given the piece a higher end finish.Β  Overall great video and great idea!Β  GOOD JOB!!

  19. Beautiful breathtaking will try that if you don't mind me asking what size are the mirrors are they the tiny ones or the big ones have a blessed day

  20. I love your channel! U r the bomb.com girl! I love your style. Keep on bring it! Stay blessed…πŸ‘β˜Ί
