Do you all love gallery walls as much as I do? With my gallery walls, I of course have tons of framed art and photos, but I also love to add in other elements like plants, baskets, and mirrors. These non-rectangular objects really help break up the linearity of an all-frame gallery wall. This easy scallop edged DIY mirror project is the perfect addition to a gallery wall and come together in less than an hour. What’s not to love about that?!
Begin by cutting circles out of your vinyl using the large circle punch. I found that the quicker you punch the circle, the cleaner the edges will be when working with the vinyl.
Now you will simply use the circles like stickers and remove the paper backing and attach them to the edge of the mirrors leaving half of the circle hanging off the edge. Place the vinyl circles all the way around the edge of the mirrors overlapping them slightly as you go.
Once all your vinyl circles are on the mirror, you can flip the mirror over and use the scissors to cut off the extra vinyl hanging off the edge. Then repeat with a few different colors and sizes of mirrors to create a mini collection.
I love that not only is this project simple to do, but it really makes these mirrors pop. And don’t feel limited to using this technique on just craft mirrors. You can cut out different shapes from vinyl to decorate the edge of any mirror. How pretty would a giant version be over your fireplace or in your bathroom? Maybe even try marble patterned contact paper instead for an upscale look!
