I LOVE how this DIY “Life is the Bubbles” Sea Shell Mirror turned out for my daughters Mermaid Room. (If you have a moment, I would love for you to vote for my room in the Cricut Design Space Star Finals!)
It was simple and inexpensive to make and looks great on the wall.
I purchased a simple circular mirror from the craft store for about $5. My friend Winona was gracious enough to give me some of the shells from her sea shell collection from all of her trips to NC. I adhered them to the mirror using Gorilla SuperGlue. After those dried, I hot glued the other shells into place.
Lastly, I used my Cricut Explore to cut out the Life is the Bubbles graphic that I designed. I thought about doing a glass etching, but then decided to give the Cricut Window Cling a try. After cutting the window cling, I used transfer tape to adhere the cling to the mirror.
I’m not going to lie – this was a bit tricky, because unlike vinyl, the window cling is not sticky. I just worked nice and slowly with a scraper. I also cut away the transfer tape after I got a portion in place, because if it accidentally touched the cling, it would pull it up again! It took a bit of finagling, but I’m really happy with the end result. Lastly, I used Velcro 3M Command Strips to hang it on the wall.
What do you think? Will you be trying it anytime soon?
