Instructions

Step 1

Download the blue and purple hydrangea blossoms patterns. Cut out blossoms.

Step 2

Select a mirror with a frame large enough to arrange the flower patterns. Remove any dirt or stickers from the frame. Apply a coat of white paint. Let dry. Add additional coats as necessary and dry completely.

Step 3

Make decoupage medium by mixing three parts glue with one part water in a paper cup. Stir well. Spread a coat of the mixture over the painted frame with a foam brush. Arrange hydrangea blossoms around the mirror. The paper may stretch or bubble up, so smooth out air bubbles with your finger. Use the foam brush to go over the blossoms with a coat of decoupage medium. Let dry. Minor shrinking and wrinkling will occur as the paper dries.

Good to Know

For easier arranging, apply one hydrangea blossom at a time.

Step 4

Once the blossoms are thoroughly dry, tape off the mirror with painter's tape and spray the frame with a matte sealer.
