DIY "Life is the Bubbles" Sea Shell MirrorI 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.

DIY Sea Shell Mirror

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.

DIY "Life is the Bubbes" MirrorI’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?
