I will polish it up and fix a couple of things but it's almost finished. Here is how I made it.
I started with this video by Stacy Hofman at Creating Dollhouse Miniaures, My first attempts, as seen in this post, were not so good so I tried again.
This time I used picture hanging wire. It is much less expensive than beading wire. If you twist the wires apart you end up with seven very fine wires. I've had this wire for years and it has stayed bright and shiny.
This wire is much more delicate than what I used before. I learned the hard way NOT to use tools/pliers to do the twisting. Use your fingers instead or the wire will break!
I added some tiny seed beads as I went along to make flowers. This is the mirror I'm making for my garden center bathroom.
I filled in the leaves with clear tacky glue tinted with one drop of DecoArt Metallics Festive Green paint.
A tip here if you are making one of these. Let the paint on the leaves dry for several hours before you pick them up! I used super glue to attach the flower spray to the mirror.
I hope you like the little extra gift I've made. I may add a couple of other things too? You have until Monday to enter. :D
