Donna Moss Introduces Jeweled Mirror Project

Materials Needed:

  • mirror or picture frame
  • clear quick-drying glue
  • costume jewelry

Select Jewelry

Collect old brooches, earrings and other costume jewelry you may have around the house (Images 1 and 2). You can also often find inexpensive costume jewelry at garage and estate sales.

Apply Glue

To attach the jewelry, apply quick-drying clear glue to the back of pieces.

Attach Pieces

Attach the pieces individually to the frame or edges of the mirror (Image 1). Heavily layer the jewelry around the edges (Image 2). Mix and match the colors and shapes in any way that appeals to you. Once you're done, you will have created a one-of-a-kind craftwork piece that almost any little girl will love.
