frost mirror wreath

This unique, glittered mirror wreath will wow your friends and family.
Step 1
With needle nose pliers, carefully pull rubber pads from the back of the 3" mirrors.   
Step 2
Clean mirrors with rubbing alcohol to erase fingerprints. 
Step 3
With painter’s tape, mask off linear designs on the 3" mirrors, making sure the edges of the tape are burnished down tightly.   
Step 4
One by one, paint Mod Podge® on the exposed areas and glitter with Diamond Dust™. Let each piece dry approximately a half hour before gently pulling off painter’s tape. Gently tap excess Diamond Dust™ from the mirrors.
 
Tip: To reduce mess of glitter, sprinkle over a paper plate. The paper plate provides a larger space to shake off excess glitter and it can easily be folded into a funnel when returning excess to the Diamond Dust™ container. 
Step 5
Paint Mod Podge® on some of the smaller mirrors and glitter with Diamond Dust™. Let dry approximately a half hour and gently tap to remove excess glitter.   
Step 6
With E-6000® glue, adhere sawtooth hanger to back of wreath form. Let completely dry.   
Step 7
Lay mirrors out on the wreath form in a pleasing arrangement. Some mirrors will overlap.
 
Tip: Make sure that mirrors are level. If needed, hide small mirrors underneath others to create a level surface. 
Step 8
Take a photo of your wreath (before disassembling the layout) to use as a guide when attaching. 
Step 9
Remove the top layer of mirrors from the wreath and set aside.   
Step 10
With a pencil, trace around the bottom layer of mirrors as they lie on the wreath form to help you re-position them after adding the glue to the mirrors.   
Step 11
Add glue to the back side of the mirrors and adhere to the wreath. Let dry completely (approximately 6 hours).  
Step 12
Add glue to the second layer of mirrors, taking care not to glue too closely to the edge of the mirror as the glue will seep out. Adhere mirror to smooth level surfaces of mirror on bottom level and allow to completely dry.
 
Tip: If glue should seep out past edge of top mirror, allow glue to dry and scrape off bare mirror carefully with an X-ACTO® knife. 
Step 13
Add small glittered and bare mirrors to finish. Allow to dry completely (approximately 6 hours).
