Mirrored Wall Sconce Dollar Tree DIY


what’s up glue dots?! I’m Elaine the
midnight crafter today I have another decorative wall sconce for you I think I
have a thing about wall sconces I don’t know why I just I really love them and
this idea came to me I thought it’d be a fun one to share with you both with you
both with all of you because all two of you that are watching here with with all
of you and anyway if you would like to join the glue doll family it’s a little
goofy around here at times but if you’d like to join the glue dot family and
stick with us there is a subscribe button below that you can hit and
there’s a bell next to it if you hit that it will inform you when I upload
new videos give me a thumbs up if you like the videos you’re seeing so far and
leave me a comment and actually what I would like to know in the comments
section is because I’m Greek and I do a lot of Greek foods I don’t make them
regularly but because I know how and I do that sometimes I would love to know
if you would be interested in me doing some cooking videos something maybe like
making baklava or something like facts I know that’s a really popular one anyway
let me know love to hear that and let’s see I think right now we just need to
get into this DIY so let’s do it to start this project out the first
thing we’re going to do is remove the lettering I’ve already done it on this
one and on most of this one here just for the sake of saving time but I did
wanna I did leave the X of relaxed so that I could show you just how to do it
I’m using this straight edge little razor and you can actually buy these at
Dollar Tree you just go through and scrape you can buy these at Dollar Tree
they come with a black little handle thing I found that the handle thing
immediately broke off with any little bit of pressure so I am just using it by
itself I don’t need the handle it’s got the little edge on it but you just go
through and scrape this all off once you get all the lettering cleaned off you
just want to go ahead and clean the glass just a little bit I mean you could
probably do this at the end because we are gonna be touching it a bit but I
just want to get some of that extra paint off of there from those letters so
now you have your cleaned frames no lettering on them and we’re gonna be
taking our small frames and it does need to specifically be this frame to fit in
to here because what we want is for it to fit you can see that it fits right
inside of there and that’s what we we need it to do for some support from our
two silver frames we’re going to be removing all of the insides or the
outsides however you want to look at it inside and outside the backings
get that all removed from both frames and then we’re going to be cutting a
piece of paper that is going to fill in as our picture so that we have a nice
surface showing on the other side now you can use any kind of paper you want
if you any kind of decorative paper if you have something that you like I’m
actually going to be using this marble adhesive it’s called adhesive laminate
and I think I got this at probably at the hardware store I can’t remember
where but you can find it all over the place and if you don’t want to use or
buy a whole roll of this I bought it because I’m going to use it for their
projects you can certainly go get a piece of some kind of craft paper or a
decorative paper that has a pattern that you like and use that inside of here so
what I’ve done is taken the piece of glass out of my frame and I’m going to
use that as a template to cut my paper and putting it on the backside and I’m
just going to trace it out and it’s nice that if you do end up getting this type
of paper it does have the lines on the back which does help a little to make
sure you have it straight but it’s really you know it’s not going to matter
as long as you trace out your glass you’ll have the size that you need I’m
actually going to do two of these we will be needing two of them and then
we’ll be cutting them out and I’m not going to use the adhesive part of it I’m
just going to leave it on the paper and I’m going to put it inside my frame as
though it were a picture when you reassemble and I’ve got it in as though
it’s a picture I’m gonna put the back back in but I’m actually gonna put this
piece upside down so that the stand part is inside and that will be holding our
picture together giving it a little more thickness and stability and then if you’d like to you can
actually cover this back piece as well with a piece of paper I think what I may
be doing is cutting another piece of my marbleized paper and covering the bottom
side so that both sides will have a nice look to them
so here’s both of them done both the both sides I did use the adhesive side
on the back so if you do get the laminate with adhesive whatever it’s
called it does work great to stick on the back and then you don’t even have to
stick it on the other side if you get just regular some kind of decorative
paper you might want to use some kind of spray adhesive or some kind of a I don’t
maybe a school glue or something to adhere it but anyway so that’s what
we’ve got now we’re going to be taking our two clear frames and we’re gonna be
taking our adhesive stickers here these mirror type stickers they do come in
different styles I chose these leaves because I just really liked that if you
like the other styles you can use those for your frame and we’re just going to
be these are self-adhesive so we’re just going to be adhering them in whatever
way you would like to the front side of your glass so once you get your pattern
on this is just the pattern I decided to choose if you look real closely there is
actually a thin thin layer of plastic on top of these pieces so it’s a little
hard to get off or to get started but you could the peels right off once you
get it started so find that and peel those little babies off your next step
is going to be to attach the frame on here and we’re going to be sliding it
right into that space and for this we’re going to be using the e6000 as well as
the hot glue more so your e6000 because you have the support
of this little lip here but you do want to make sure that it’s got a good hold
because it’s gonna be holding your candle your candle this thing and make
sure please please ventilate a well-ventilated area when you use your
e6000 a 6000 actually can be carcinogenic actually I know that’s a
don’t know why we do it anyway but as long as you take precautions then I feel
like maybe it’s okay I don’t know I’m not a specialist with that so I don’t
want to say for sure but just please keep in a ventilated area try and keep
it off your skin if you can and I have my e6000 running across that bottom edge
I’m gonna put a little bit of hot glue in there and the hot glue I’m gonna kind
of put back towards the back corner because it’s not going to show and I put
plenty of that as well just for some extra hold and then place your picture
frame right in that flat area and press it down it’s also a good idea probably
to have put it on the sides I didn’t do it on this one I didn’t think about it
but for sure on this one I will and you want to let this dry for 72 hours before
you put this up on the wall with your candle thing this has some weight to it
and actually e6000 we do say a lot of times we feel like I was a 24 hour cure
time but to fully cure it needs 72 hours and if you don’t want this to fall down
on your head or on someone else’s head I’d give it the 72 hours you

  25. I just found your channel and you had me at goofy and just made me smile. So I'm a new subby.
    Also this was AMAZINGLY put together.

  26. Pretty!! I actually seen these at my Dollar Tree…pick them up and looked through a BUNCH of them…put them down cause I got distracted!! 🤦🏾‍♀️now watch when I go back they will be gone! Smh…😂

  27. awesome! I love to do this with elephant imprints.. I colect them, that would be so awesome for me… I love it.. ty for sharing!..

  28. Those reflective serving trays in the wedding section would work good as the Paper inside the Table mirrored part, instead of the marbled stuff…know what im talking about? It will reflect the flicker of the candle more. I believe you used it on one of your new videos, July 31, 2019 and cut them out for your leaves in that wall picture you did, which lead me to view your whole channel more closely.
