A Mirror Makeover


My father-in-law used to buy things from Publisher's Clearing House so that my mother-in-law could keep her hopes alive of winning 10 million dollars.  Today's refit craft is one of those "GRAND" gifts that he ordered from PCH and then gave to me.  It was a grand daughter frame and I was supposed to give it to Hannah, but she did not want it.  What I did was scrape off the grand daughter poem and took off the flower that was glued on there.  Then I redid the whole thing. 

I first added a wire of seed beads in purple and green (using this weeks CR84FN colors).  Then I made flowers from paper (a gray and a purple).  I used a prima flower at the top of the mirror along with a Tim Holtz metal charm, some rhinestones and then on the bottom a rub on that said "someone to watch over me" along with some prima leaves.

I thought it turned out cute....especially since my "canvas" was so tiny.  The mirror is about 7x2.

Very simple, but I promise you it is 100% better than the PCH mirror that I started with.
