Stamped Mirror

Picture it: A mirror catches your eye at a yard sale or flea market. The price? Affordable. The color and design? Meh. Don't pass it by -- DIY! (We won't tell if you don't tell!) With all the stencils, stamps and paints at A.C. Moore, you'll never compromise on the look of your home décor pieces again!

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Paint Frame: Remove mirror from frame. If needed, use sandpaper to smooth wood surface. Use the flat brush to apply paint on the wood surface. Tip: Chalky pastels are a great base color when using Black ink -- the dark letters really stand out against the lighter color. Once the paint has dried, put the mirror and frame back together.

    Decorate Mirror: Prepare mirror surface by wiping with a paper towel and glass cleaner. Place the daisy stamp in the black ink and apply onto mirror in a circular pattern at the center. Tip: Reapply ink after every stamp to get a consistent boldness of image. Another tip: To erase or clean up ink, simply spray glass cleaner onto a cotton swab! Choose your phrase. “(Hello Beautiful” is the phrase we love!) Stamp phrase onto mirror. Tip: Stamp the design and phrase on a piece of scrap paper similar in size of the surface being decorated first -- just so you're sure it will fit the way you want it to on the glass.
