Crafts/DIY: Upgrading a $5 Mirror
Are you familiar with these $5 mirrors? They are made of plastic moulding, thin mirror, and backed with kraft paper. That cheap. I bought one because I really needed an inexpensive, full length mirror.
Here it is in all its $5 glory.
 I put 2 D-rings at the back like what I did in this easy fabric wall decor DIY. You can get these from your hardware or craft store. They should be in the framing supply section.
 Tie a thick pretty fabric ribbon on the D-rings to the length you want. Do this before you tie the bow on top. This will make it easier for you.
I had 1" twill ribbon waiting to be used. I got it from a Pottery Barn purchase I made way back. I always keep the pretty ribbons that come free with my purchases.
 Tie a bow on top using the same fabric ribbon.
 Hang it and admire it from a distance.
Not bad for a $5 mirror huh?
Here is the twill ribbon up close.
