since i've newly redecorated my room, i've done a few diy projects~ one of which was to prettify (i can't believe my mac accept this as a real word) my mirror~ i take a lot of outfit shots and it's also nice when you're not having a good hair/face/body/everything day, and you're looking at yourself in a sweet little cutesy princess mirror!
it's fairly simple, i mean, i'm crafty but i'm not really all that skilled! the thing is, this requires sewing (by hand if you're terrified by the machine like me) and also hot glueing! i've burned myself so many times while diy-ing my room, so please be careful not to poke yourself, sew your fingers or burn yourself! :c
without further ado. . .
- ribbon, strings of pearls
- flowers, jewels, stickers other embellishments
- little scissors
- coloured thread + sewing needle
- hot glue gun + glue sticks
** optional: measuring tape -- (though i never used it)
** optional: bedazzler
** optional: glass/window markers
** make sure you leave a little extra room on both sides in case you lose a bit of width when sewing!
this was my final product! if any one follows me on insta, then you would have seen it progress in some of my mirror outfit shots! you can go super full out or super simple depending on the type of look you were going for! i wanted something a little simple but that also screamed fairy princess with a hime gyaru influence! obviously if this were a true hime gyaru mirror, it would be a lot more glamorous than mine with more bedazzled jewels and lace, but you get the idea, of course!
i just love mine because it looks elegant and romantic and it totally fits in and adds to the theme of my room~ ♡
hope your projects turn out just as lovely as you are~ c: ♡ have fun and remember to be careful~ i hope i could give you some inspiration~
