Elevate a plain $15 mirror to become a decorative, etched stunner with a craft knife and etching cream.

Choose your design. There are many great stock stencils, but for a custom design, copy a favorite pattern on a photocopier. We enlarged our design to be more dramatic and then made enough copies to frame the mirror. With the custom pattern copied, cover the entire surface of the mirror with the adhesive vinyl paper. Smooth on slowly to avoid air bubbles. Then tape your pattern into place.
