Mirror with a flat edge - you’ll need the edge to be at least 2” wide, Fabric of your choice – I used a body pillow cover, Scissors, Craft knife and mat, Pen, Ruler, Paintbrush.Medium grit sandpaper and tack cloth (optional).Wax paper (optional).Waterproof sealer (optional)
- Prepare the fabric by washing and drying. Cut the pillow cover so that it is one single layer of fabric (as opposed to double thickness) and place on a non-stick surface (wax paper is recommended).
- Sand the edge of your mirror (if required) and wipe away dust with the tack cloth.
- Measure the edge of your mirror (mine was 2”). You’ll need to cut four fabric strips, one for each side of the mirror, to fit. I did this by using a ruler and marking with a pen on the BACK of the fabric. Then I cut the fabric using the ruler, craft knife and mat.
- At each corner, cut at a perfect 45 degree angle using your craft knife and mat. Make sure that these fit the mirror before trimming.
- Start on one side, and Mod Podge down the fabric. Add a medium layer of Mod Podge to the mirror edge surface, place the fabric down and smooth. Let dry for 15 – 20 minutes and repeat. Work your way around the mirror until all four sides are covered. Let dry.
- At this point you can trim the fabric to fit the mirror OR fold the fabric over the sides.
- Give all four sides a top coat of Mod Podge and let dry. Repeat and let dry.
- Scrape any excess Mod Podge that got onto the mirror off with a razor blade before hanging.
