moss & mushroom naturally scary mirror

This crafted mirror is the perfect nod to a witch’s lair. It’s a creative way to decorate for the Halloween season.

Step 1

First, paint your mirror's rim black and let dry.

Step 2

Accent the mirror with a dry brush painting of Gold paint over the black and let dry.
TIP: The Gold accent will highlight any details on the mirror and immediately age the look.

Step 3

Create a smoky aged look to the actual mirror. Wearing disposable gloves drop some gray tones of alcohol ink on the mirror. Spray rubbing alcohol on the drops. Blot the drops with a baby wipe. Repeat until you get the desired smoky look.

Step 4

Place dark moss on the mirror and allow it to drape. Use hot glue to attach.

Step 5

Glue clusters of dried mushrooms and ferns to the mirror.

Step 6

Glue a large spider for a focal point.

Step 7

Finish the mirror with other accents like a snake skeleton and crow.
