Few days ago I was gathering few branches in my yard for a project (which did not happen) and I came across a thick branches and it hit me so I got the Branches inside and took out $1 dollar store candle plate mirror that I had bought to make sunburst mirror :)
This is the only supply you need - Tree branches - mirror - Glue gun -Pruner
This is was one of the project where I did not have clear picture of the finished project and I went with the flow.
There were not many round branches so started cutting them using pruner. I arranged them in a way that I could make twig frame. I had to try so many arrangements and when I liked the look I hot glued branches to mirror.
I took it near the window and took few shots but I wasn't entirely happy with it..as the branches were not perfectly round I did not like the mirror showing up from side.
So I put the mirror back on table, cut few more pieces of branches, went with the flow and started arranging on sides.
and when I was happy with the layout I hot glued them...
I put the finished mirror on the bathroom wall...there is no natural light so its hard to take good picture...
I felt that it looks kind of small all alone so I moved it and put it on the shelf which I will show you tomorrow with updated shelves. I think the trio of this would look great or I may pair it with other mirror arrangement in future.
I thought of painting the branches but for now I like the rustic look , I can always paint later when I need change. If you want colored branches, spray paint it before you hot glue them so it will be easier. If you do not have glue gun , I think crazy glue will also work. This is my 2nd DIY with glue gun and I like my glue gun...it adds new idea in my head.
