Project Details

  • Level:intermediate
  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Use wire cutters to remove shanks from the buttons you will be using.
  • 2
    Cut a few strips of tulle off the roll. These should be about the length you want your “icicles”.
  • 3
    Cut each long rectangle in half from corner to corner. This will make 2 right angle triangles.
  • 4
    Glue the triangles together. (Tip: the more glue you use the stronger the tulle becomes.)
  • 5
    Start at the long side of the triangle and run a line of glue from one end to the other. Fold the tulle on to itself creating a small glued strip of tulle. (Tip: use your pencil to press down when working with hot glue.)
  • 6
    Continue folding and wrapping the tulle around in a roll. After the first 2 wraps you don’t have to use the pencil and the wrap does not have to be super tight. At the end it should create a cone shape.
  • 7
    Repeat steps 5 and 6, alternating between the tulles and alternating lengths until you have the desired amount and size of “icicles”.
  • 8
    Lay mirror face side down. Glue “icicles” to the back.
  • 9
    Turn mirror over and glue “icicles” to the front.
  • 10
    Layer “icicles” until you have desired look.
  • 11
    Create a puddle of glue where the tulle is connected to the mirror. Sprinkle glitter on the glue while it is still hot and add buttons. Continue in this manner, adding glue, glitter and buttons until the outer edge of the mirror has a frosted, snowy look and the bottoms of the tulle cones are covered.
