21  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / More mirrors! on: September 11, 2014 07:22:42 PM
I had two weird plastic circle things from the odd toy bin at the thrift store. Orange, clear plastic, I have no idea what they were. Painted them, added mirrors from a compact, and flower stems from Dollar Store clearance garden decor.

The metal stems are held on with strips of aluminum tape from the hardware store.
Neck, a white glass plate with a scalloped edge from the resale shop. It already had a plate hanger on it. I took a Dollar Tree makeup mirror, took off the suction cups, painted it, glued on shiny purple beads, glued itto the plate where it fit perfectly, then edged it with a couple of rows of tiny pearl beads.
Lookit my fancy hawaiian shirt! ^_^

And a pic that came out too dark, but shows of the scalloped edge.

Last,an old compact! The gold was all scratched up. Painted the top in a mix of gold and green, darker green and purple for the center leaf and flower. The inside had a mirror on top, and the bottom was meant to hold face powder. I brushed some black and gold inside, and added three tiny circle mirrors.

Kookaloo, I like that curtain!

project dump! ^_^
Three mirrors. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=435529.0#axzz3CTLw9xno

One simple raygun, and the Goodwill clock I  used for the base after I broke it. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=435530.0#axzz3CTLw9xno

And a planter I rescued this spring. It's made of plaster, had several chunks broken, and was set on the curb for trash day. So I carried it home. I used concrete patch to mend it as best I could. It's jagged at the top, and one of the scroll feet is gone completely. But hey, just gives it more of the look of age, right? Dry brushed it with a little white paint, then planted it. It'll finish falling apart eventually, but I'll enjoy it until it does.

The base is a plastic wall clock from Goodwill, that I broke when taking it apart. So,painted it and used it to hang a small raygun.

And one from a yard sale.
This was was very simple. A little spanish copper rub 'n  buff. Then I found a tiny metal ballerina that matched perfectly in my stash.

This reminds me of those eye of god things we used to make with sticks and yarn. I used three beaded necklace my daughter gave me from her stuff for Goodwill bag.

The gold mirror was a yard sale find. And the long necklace I think was Goodwill? I lose track, people clear out their jewelry boxes and give me things! And it fit perfectly. So I painted that part black, and also the outer edge. I still need to clean up the painted edges.
