Oh how I love me a fabulous seashell-encrusted mirror!
There are some REALLY gorgeous and REALLY expensive ones out there.
They didn't look all that complicated to make, so I decided to try. I found a large $10 mirror at my local thrift store and bought a couple bags of all-white shells. I then dug out my trusty hot glue gun and got to work in my garage.
Several glue sticks and hours later, I emerged with this beauty...not bad for my first try!
top, At the I centered a simple white starfish to give it some interest.
Not bad for a $10 mirror and a couple bags of shells...I'm DYING to make another one with a thicker frame and different shells. This one will have to do for now!
