shimmer noel frosted mirror tree topper

Step 1
Click on the numbers to download the patterns: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Use washi tape to create design onto mirrors. Cut ends of washi tape for a clean straight edge.
 
In a well-ventilated area, lay mirrors down onto cardboard (or newspaper) and spray several layers of Frost Glass spray. Allow paint to dry for several minutes between coats.
 
TIP: For best results, hold can at least 8"-10" away from mirror surface while spraying and spray in a side-to-side motion.
 
Carefully remove washi tape from mirrors and set mirrors aside to dry completely.  
Step 2
Spray five wooden dowels with Chrome spray paint. Allow paint to dry 30 minutes before handling.
 
Turn mirrors over and glue the end of one dowel onto the back of each mirror, using a generous amount of hot glue. For stability, be sure to glue at least 2"-3" of dowel rod onto back of mirror to support the weight of the mirrors.
 
TIP: Before gluing dowel rod to back of mirror, be sure the mirror is facing the proper direction, with design facing correctly. 
Step 3
Cut length of floral wire using wire cutters and carefully wire each mirror into the top of the tree. Hold the dowel rod against a tree limb and wire the dowel to the tree limb.
