How to make a Twig mirror DIY

Hello Everyone! This is Jennifer Zuri from Town and Country Living. It’s been a couple months since I shared a guest post here at Jennifer Rizzo’s blog. I’ve had a wild and crazy summer and I’m glad we’re settling back into a routine with the Fall season.

I love bringing natural elements into the home when autumn rolls into town, and today I’m sharing how to make a twig mirror!

We had a lot of fallen branches in our yard this summer due to the overwhelming amount of rain and storms. We installed a fire pit to burn them, but I told hubby to slow down the burn rate so I’d have twigs for craft projects.

 

How to Make a Twig MirrorMy first twig project is this rustic mirror that I made in a little over an hour.

 

How to Make a Twig MirrorHere’s what I started with. I’ve had this floral mirror for years but it’s been in storage so it was either donate it to our local thrift store, or transform it into something new. There’s nothing wrong with this mirror, I just ran out of space to hang it.

 

How to Make a Twig MirrorTo make a twig mirror, start by collecting branches of similar width and cut into smaller pieces. I tried to use a few bark types to give the mirror slight color variations. Hot glue the twigs onto the mirror using a hot glue gun.

 

DIY Twig MirrorI started closest to the mirror and worked my way out. Your twigs won’t fit perfectly, so you’ll need to layer and overlap them.
