Finished my third altered Ikea Mirror


These mirrors are just begging to be altered, they start off as just plain pine and you can do anything you wish with them I aim to make five for us for when out hallway is redecorated as I have decided that its about time I could actually see some of my altered and craft items about the home I then want to alter more of these mirrors as gifts as they are such fun to do.

I also altered a empty little pin box measuring two and half inches by 2 roughly, I hate waste and like to see just what can be done with little boxes I made a little nest from wire and threaded in three beads, I added a background pic of a bird next to a nest a green feather to match the eggs Then I added some ribbon to the outside of the box also a metal silver feather charm so cute I will need to think of some way of displaying my little creations at some future date?

I made another one of these little boxes(this box used  to contain paperclips)  some time ago and put a fairy in it with little beads and loads of ribbons they are fun to do and would otherwise just be put in the bin
