I’m not much for the spooky/creepy side of Halloween, so this spooky Halloween Mirror is about as far as I’ll go in that direction. I recently bought an old book for another project, and I noticed this old image that had creepy written all over it. I also happened to have this little mirror that my grandma had given me a while back.
So with these two items in hand, this project was a no brain-er. In fact it was fun to make!
- a small old looking frame (thrift store)
- an old book (thrift store)
- razor blade for scraping
-glossy black spray paint
Creepy image, right?! You could also use an old image of an ancestor. Although that might freak your kids out more.
1. Take the mirror apart.
2. Cut out the picture to fit the frame.
3. Scrape off the coating on the back of the mirror.
4. When scrapping try not to scrape off too much. Less is more here. Check it as you go with the picture underneath.
5. See, it looks good here. If I was to do it again, I would scrape a lot less, trying not to scratch too much.
6. Tape the picture to the back of your mirror.
7. Spray your little frame with black spray paint. Then assemble it all together, and
There you have it! A spooky mirror that you’ll want to keep face down most of the time.
So, I’d love to know…When it comes to Halloween, are you more into the cute/crafty/whimsical side of it, or the spooky/creepy side of it?
