A few weeks back I got a bunch of seashells from a dollar store. I decided to craft something with these seashells but was not sure what to try with them. I have already decorated a hair comb with these in past, used these seashells in gel wax candles, and also for decorating a mirror with seashells and stones. Here today, I decorate the backside of my mirror with a few shells and scrapbook sheet paper. I hope you will like my DIY Mirror Decor | Easy Art Ideas using Seashells.

This is the final look of the mirror which I just decorated. The front side is still a looking mirror but I decorated the backside only. How is it looking after this makeover? This is a vanity table standing mirror actually, but after this little vintage touch of décor, this can be used as a shelf décor item too. (in case the mirror from its backside gets cracked)

Measure the scrapbook sheet according to the size of mirror blank space.

This is how you will get the idea about the size. Roughly cut the sheet and then see if it is as per the size of your mirror.

As it was a fixable standing mirror, so before starting the décor work, I separated the oval-shaped part from the standing mirror. It was easier to design this way.

I had many other ideas in my mind to decorate it but as it’s a moving side mirror so if there will be some weight on one side, the other side will be disturbed due to an imbalance of weight. So we need to keep the balance here by sing light in weight things.
