I am calling this a lattice cutout mirror because I can’t think of what else to call it. Whatever you call it, the idea is you can create a fancy mirror like this out of any thing that has cut outs. You could try a piece of real lattice, an architectural piece or a frame like I did!
For my purposes, I bought a simple set of two picture frames Pier One.
In this particular frame, the small 4 inch square in the middle is where a photo is supposed to go. The scrolly part is just the frame. But I just ignored that and had my local glass cutter cut a mirror to fit the entire 16 inches of the frame so the mirror would be behind the cutouts all the way to the edge, and had the mirror glued to the back. I think the mirrors were about $25 each. Hardware stores sell those mirror squares so if the size worked out, you could use pre-cut mirror.
And there you have it! A fun new mirror!
Just think of the possibilities!
Remember this post where I showed you an idea for a DIY Sunburst mirror made out of pink plastic spoons of all things (last photo in the post)? It is fun to think outside the box from what currently IS to what COULD BE.
