Decorating With Pebbles
Pebbles in different colours and shapes can be found in many shops. Depending on the size of the mirror you want to decorate, you can buy one or two bags with pebbles. Sort through them when you get home and make different piles. You will also need a glue gun, which will help you attach the pebbles to the surface of the mirror. Work slowly and when you are done, leave the glue to dry before you hang the mirror on the wall. In case you see glue stains here and there, you can clean them with a dry towel or cloth.

DIY Sunburst Mirror
The sunburst mirrors are very popular because they can make every room look stylish with their interesting design. You may think that it’s hard to make one yourself, but we can assure you that it is actually very easy. What you need is one mirror with flat frame edge, 100-150 branches, painter’s tape, glue gun, a yardstick, spray paint and one sheet of paper. Using the yardstick you can mark the places for the branches. When you are done, decide how long the branches will be and then make them all even. Then glue them to the surface of the frame. When the glue dries out, cover the mirror with the sheet to protect it and start spraying the branches with the paint. Then leave the mirror to dry and hang it anywhere you like.
