Gather Your Supplies For This Dollar Store Mirror DIY
To begin your DIY dollar store boho mirror, the first thing you’ll need to do is gather your supplies. I did get a couple of dollar-store supplies for this tutorial. Fortunately, some of the materials required for this project can be found at your local dollar store or Amazon. This means making this whole mirror project a budget-friendly option for anyone looking to spruce up their home.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- A pizza pan from the dollar store
- Round mirror plain stickers
- A pack of decorative twine or rope (different thicknesses)
- A hot glue gun (and plenty of gorilla glue sticks)
- A pair of scissors
- Faux leather
You can shop these supplies used for this project below for your convenience:
Once you have all of your supplies ready, it’s time to move on to the next step: prepping the mirror.
Prep the Pizza Pan and Add Mirror Stickers
To ensure that your DIY dollar store mirror achieves the desired boho style, it is important to properly prep the mirror before beginning the painting process. First, clean the mirror with a glass cleaner and a lint-free cloth to remove any dirt, grime, or fingerprints that could affect the paint’s adherence.
Once your mirror is prepped and ready to go, you can move on to the next step and begin creating the boho look with your spray paint and decorative accents.
Create the Boho Look
To create a boho look for your dollar store mirror, you’ll want to focus on adding fun and unique decorative accents. Choose items with natural textures and earthy tones, like cotton rope, and macrame cord.
To start, use your hot glue gun to attach your rope to the outer edges of your mirror. Play around with the placement until you find a design that you love. For an even more eclectic feel, consider layering different thicknesses with your rope.
Once you’ve added all of your rope, grab your faux leather. I use this to create bookmarks with my Cricut machine so I had some on hand. It’s inexpensive to purchase on Amazon.
After that, all that’s left to do is add your hanging hardware or command strips and find the perfect spot to display your new boho masterpiece! With your mirror now looking stunningly bohemian, it’s time to add the finishing touches by hanging it up in your favorite spot.
