Materials Needed:

  • inexpensive (or secondhand) mirror with wide, flat frame
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • small branches
  • white spray primer and spray paint
  • sanding block and sandpaper
  • painter's tape
  • window cleaner

Source Mirror and Tape Off Glass

Shop the house or secondhand stores for a small square or rectangular flat-fronted mirror. Use painter's tape to completely mask off the mirror.

Prime Frame

Coat the frame with 2 coats of spray primer, allowing ample dry time between coats.

Cut and Glue Twigs

Use a garden clipper to cut several twigs to the same width as the flat part of the mirror frame. Hot glue the twigs to all four sides of the mirror, but don't yet attach any twigs to the corners of the frame.
