Tis the season to start Christmas crafting! This Pottery Barn knockoff mirror art is so easy and fun to make! Give it a try this holiday!
I am always looking for inexpensive but fun crafts to make during the holidays. And the classier the better! My style isn’t distressed and farmhouse-y… it’s more clean and modern so sometimes finding a craft project that also fits my style can be a challenge! But this DIY mirror art is a cinch and it turned out so so so good! Better than I even imagined. And all you’d need to do is switch up the vinyl you apply to make it whatever you want. Perfect for customization! I was thinking this kind of project would be so pretty for a wedding reception or something like that. So pretty!
But, since Christmas is coming, let’s focus on that, shall we?
I had been flipping through the latest Pottery Barn Bed + Bath catalog when I spotted this…
I thought it was super pretty but then I looked at the price… $149. Wha?? I don’t think so. I knew I could DIY it for a fraction of that price and I didn’t think it would be very hard either. And I was right! Super easy and I did mine for about $12. Crazy, right? Plus I could customize it for the exact size I wanted to fit on my mantel. Perfect! If you have an old mirror laying around then it would be even cheaper for you!
If you want to make your own, here is what you’ll need:
- Mirror (I found mine at Target for only $5! It’s a 13×13 inch mirror)
- vinyl lettering (if you don’t have a vinyl cutting machine and want to purchase this exact design you can in my Etsy shop HERE)
- Flat white paint/primer spray paint
- painter’s tape for masking
STEP ONE: Apply vinyl lettering to mirror (this was super cute even just at this point, by the way, but I continued on with my plan! Ha!)
STEP TWO: If desired, mask mirror frame with painter’s tape to avoid spray painting it.
STEP THREE: Spray paint over vinyl lettering and mirror. I found a few light coats was best, allowing them to dry in between.STEP FOUR: Carefully remove vinyl lettering (I use tweezers) and tape from frame. And you’re done! So easy don’t you think?
Then I added some other wintery stuff to the mantel and I was all set!
I saw those wood trees over on Michael’s site, Inspired By Charm, and knew they’d be perfect! His are the most adorable colors but I kept mine silvery and white. I also just cut mine from a 1″ pine board and he did 2″. I found the garland and star at Michaels.
