Broken Mirror Art

Hi Folks.!! Hope you all are doing good. It's been a long time I updated the blog. Here, I come up with an interesting DIY.
Have you ever break a mirror and felt sorry about it?? Now its time to feel happy for the same. Yesss!! You heard it right. Here, I show you a DIY with broken mirror pieces.

Things you need:
  • Broken mirror
  • Carbboard piece
  • Glue gun 
  • Silver paint or any paint color of your choice (preferably shiny)
  • Paint brush
  • Paper/cloth bag 
  • Hammer

Let's begin with the process.

Place the mirror pieces in the paper bag. Gently tap it using a hammer a few times to that it breaks in to small pieces as below.

Now, take the cardboard piece and paint it with the color of your choice. I painted it with pearl metallic silver color.

Carefully arrange mirror pieces as below on the cardboard piece in any pattern you desire. Be sure to leave very little gap between two pieces of mirror.

After you have arranged mirror pieces in pattern you desire, start sticking them using glue gun. While sticking, make sure to follow a pattern so you won't miss out sticking any. Keep it aside for a while to let it dry completely. Once it dried, gently overturn to find any piece that's not sticked properly to stick it back again.

Yipeee. That's it!! you're done... Secure it on the wall using nails. Isn't it so simple??
