Mirrors are every home decorator’s must-have for the open, airy spaces they can create and the light they can diffuse with very few sources. But you can take this further. How about using flowers and greenery to add that warm, happy feeling to your interiors? Using floral or leaf arrangements is actually very easy. Just use your imagination and some of the stuff you have lying around and go for it. Here’s what you can do--
Select the Mirror and Glue
Pick up any simple mirror you have in your home and if it doesn't have a frame, check out your local custom mirrors store and get one. It is always preferable to use hot glue. That’s because hot glue is not permanent in nature, especially on non-porous surfaces. At a later date, if you feel you need to redo your frame, you can simply peel off the attachments and paste on new ones.
Fresh Flowers and Leaves in Vases
Let’s try something basic first. Arrange the flowers and greens into any vase you have at home. Say, you have had a birthday and you have all these bouquets. You could make them last you longer by setting them up in a vase and setting the vase in front of a mirror. The reflected flowers will make the vase seem bigger and you can add a cheery feel to your room.
Wreaths and Garlands
You can use wreath hangers to arrange the wreaths to hang on your mirror. Fit one on the top of your mirror and if you are using a metal hanger, bend it to experiment with different hanging styles. You can also hang garlands of flowers around your mirror. Try S-shaped hooks that are easier to conceal below the foliage you want to hang.
Dried flowers also look so very beautiful and you could simple let your wreaths and garlands dry out. Only make sure you trim out the unsightly ones and cover the gaps left behind by the drying foliage. Of course, you could always buy dried flowers and arrange them around your mirror according to your own personal style.
Silk and paper flowers and greenery are a more permanent option. Pick out your favorite ones and glue them onto the frame of the mirror. If you have a rectangular mirror, you could arrange them along two opposite corners. And if you have an oval mirror, again you could begin at the top and follow one curve downwards. And round mirrors look very pretty with flowers all around their edges. And if you feel you don’t like frames, you could always get your mirror bevelled instead.
