Using Vinyl as a Stencil – Polka Dot Mirror

Have you seen these mirrors at Ikea?  They are $1.99.  Can’t beat that, right?  I bought a few, decorated one, and added it to my Valentine decor.

I started out by cutting polka dots out of vinyl using Cricut – craft room.  I removed all the dots and used the leftover vinyl as my pattern.  Then I wrapped it around my frame.

I painted my frame with tole paint.  *This pic doesn’t show the the edges painted – I went back and painted them because it looked a little unfinished.


When the paint dried I pulled off the vinyl and then sanded the whole frame to give it an aged look.  


Now think of the other shapes and designs you could do!  If you wanted you could remove the mirror and make it a picture frame.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

Have you ever thought to add vinyl quotes, thoughts and clip art to the mirrors in your home? Maybe that rather blank mirror in your guest bathroom or a remind for your kids to brush their teeth would be a great way to personalize a rather overlooked space in your home. When I was married to my husband over 20 years ago he would wake and tell me, “I love you, You’re Beautiful.” But over the years he’s missed a day or two. But one day came home with a small pre-cut vinyl piece that simply said “You’re Beautiful” on it and applied it to my side of our bathroom mirror. I love it! Check out these other vinyl on mirror ideas I loved too! All links to The Casabella project link back to My Blessed Life
