stencilled wall mirror
Customise a tired mirror in less than an hour
We’ve been inspired by lottie’s unusual mirror and have added a personal touch to our own using a floral stencil.
This step-by-step project takes just one hour to complete and would make a lovely present for a new home or for newlyweds as a wedding gift.
1Position the stencil in your chosen spot on your mirror and stick in place around the edges with masking tape. Fix several more pieces of tape, working outwards from the stencil, to cover the mirror. Make sure the stencil is stuck securely in place to avoid it moving around while spraying later on. Use newspaper to cover the rest of the mirror’s surface, to prevent the spray from frosting the wrong areas.
2Working outside on a dust sheet, apply some frosting spray onto the stencil area, holding the can approximately 2030cm from the surface. leave to dry, then apply a second coat. Once completely dry, carefully peel away the newspaper and masking tape to lift off your stencil.
pi ck a stencil to suit your look– go for something geometric for a modern edge, or choose floral for a more classic, feminine finish
