I found this over at Home Made Simple and fell in love. I thought it was so cute and it looked pretty easy. So I decided to take a stab at it with a few slight variations. I found the frames in the trash and my mom was planning on throwing away the mirror so I snagged it. I spray painted the frames white and used craft paint to paint the mirror's frame yellow. A little paint can go a long way in transforming outdated things!
First, gather your supplies. You'll need two pieces of cardstock (a top color and a bottom color) and some frames. An x-acto pen and cutting mat are helpful, but scissors will probably work too.
Sketch out a plant design. It does not have to be good. I am not very good (read: terrible artist) and I still managed to make it work. You just a general outline of what you want to do. Then, use your x-acto knife to cut out your shapes.
It doesn't have to be perfect, since you'll be flipping the paper over. Nobody will now that you strayed from the path just a little!
Once everything is all cut out, layer up your papers, stick 'em the frame and put them up!
I like the way the mirror looks added in with the nature-y art. This was a super easy project that really ads some flair to a boring wall. I had a lot of fun making it and since I'm not naturally artistic, it turned out way better than expected!
Keep in mind where you are going to hang these when finished. I hung it up opposite a yellow wall, so the mirror just looks like a yellow square. It will be moved to a new home eventually.
