After months of looking at our unadorned dining table and contemplating ideas of what to put there, I finally bit the bullet and did something about it. I did not want to put any tall decorations-that you cannot see the person across from you. I hate that. Also, it couldn’t be too fancy but too rustic either. So this was the solution and it was one on the cheaper side. To make all 3 of the mirror plant holder cost me about $20. That’s for all 3! That includes the candle mirrors (from the dollar store) and the rope (from Hobby Lobby). I am not counting the plants, which I got for half off from Hobby Lobby for $7 each. So to make just one of these holders would be about $7.
I found this idea on Pinterest, I don’t recommend clicking on the link of the pin though because when I did, it took me to some shady website. But you can just basically see from the pictures how to make it. I added the rope because there were gaps in between the mirrors. That may have been my bad! Also, I wanted to add a little rustic touch to it, so that’s why I chose the rope (and I am thinking of adding more rope). I originally thought of maybe putting lace trimmings to cover the gaps but I went with the rope because I thought the lace would have been too dainty for my house. I’m sure lace would be pretty too though! So, overall, to do this project, all it takes is $20, a glue gun, plenty of glue sticks, some patience, and some burnt fingers!
