"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all..." (per the Brothers Grimm fairy tale)? Well, if you craft this DIY home décor piece by @tashdesignsca from TikTok, it may turn out to be the mirror rather than yourself — that's how spectacular it looks! By combining a mirror with some wooden bead wreaths, you'll end up with a magical and unique look that you can implement anywhere around your home to upgrade and decorate your interior. This could be in your hallway, a bathroom, a guest bedroom, an entryway, or even your lounge.

Likewise, if you don't want to spend a fortune on a mirror, this is a fantastic option to save a few bucks and still end up with an eye-catching result. All you'll need is some Hobby Lobby wood bead wreaths in two different sizes (one the same size as your mirror and the other larger) and a circular mirror, the same size as your smaller wreath. For example, you could pick up a 14-inch wreath and one 10-inch wreath to pair with a suitable-sized mirror. You can grab the wreaths from Hobby Lobby, which start at $4.99. For the construction of it, you'll want some E6000 glue, hot glue, and gold spray paint.

How to make the mirror

To make this mirror, first, prepare your wooden beads. Simply lay down an old rag or sheet in a well-ventilated area or outdoors and place your wooden bead wreaths down so that you can apply an even coating of gold spray paint. However, you can always experiment with another color if you're not a fan of gold. Allow the paint enough time to dry before moving on to the next step, which is to spread both your regular glue and hot glue around the border frame of the mirror before carefully placing your smaller wreath over the top. Press it down gently and allow it enough time to set.

To complete your design, take some E6000 and hot glue again and apply a curved line onto the center of the back of your mirror. Next, take your other bead wreath and add it on top so it hangs off the side. All that's left to do now is leave your project out to dry before attaching it to your wall. As a result, you should be left with a gorgeous mirror that will catch anyone's eye, and all for a relatively low price!

Add your own touches

You can create a more custom look for this hack in several ways, which is ideal if you want to experiment with other styles and colors. One way to shake things up is by applying some adhesive sequins to your wooden wreaths, and although it may be time-consuming, it can create a somewhat "dazzling" look. There are packs of clear crystals available to purchase from Amazon for $6.99, but others are also available in various colors. If you're looking for something more simplistic, simply switch up the color of your spray paint to match your interior or create a striking feature piece.

In addition to these changes, you could also experiment with different types of wooden wreaths, for example, a grapevine option from Michaels for $4.99. If you find a larger wreath and want to pair it with a larger mirror, you can do that, too. Remember that when doing this DIY, you want to ensure that the wreaths are adhered properly, otherwise, they could fall off. Avoid this by applying a generous amount of glue rather than too little. Now, you should have a fabulous DIY mirror on a budget
