Add Corner Twigs

Use hot glue to adhere one small twig diagonally across each corner. Create an X in each corner by adhering two small twigs in the opposite direction from Twig 1. Create a 6-pointed star in each corner by gluing two more small twigs through the center of the X created in the previous steps.

Fill In

Fill in the spaces between each small twig with smaller twigs as shown below.

Paint Frame, Then Sand Smooth

Evenly coat the mirror frame with white spray paint. To create a birch bark effect, use a sanding block wrapped in sand paper to lightly sand the raised parts of each twig. Carefully remove painter's tape and clean mirror surface with window cleaner before hanging. Tip: Stubborn tape or paint can be removed with a razor blade.
