DIY It - Colorblocked Abstract Mirrors

 You guys! I completely forgot to share these mirrors with you! I got the idea after looking through a home decor magazine a year ago, but their price was way too high, so I decided to DIY them for cheap out of a few basic craft supplies. You are seriously not going to believe how easy they are to make!


Begin by laying your vinyl over the mirror and indenting the vinyl slightly to give you a rough cut line.

Cut slightly outside this line and then peel away the back of the vinyl and adhere it to the mirror. Use the scissors to cut away the extra vinyl along the edge of the mirror. Either leave the mirror like this with one color, or layer a second color on top at a different angle.
Once all the vinyl is applied to your DIY mirrors, add a small amount of glue to one side of the interior hoop of the embroidery hoop set.

Now wasn’t that easy?! And I am so in love with the color blocked look!

They have a little touch of color but the DIY color blocked mirrors still bounce around the light and give the space a renewed spring time look. If color isn’t your thing, you can always stick with a silver or gold vinyl for a more muted look.
Or if you want even more color, paint the wood embroidery hoops before gluing them on for a color pop edge!
