Decoupage Mirror Frame with a Pillowcase

Decorate a mirror frame with Mod Podge and your favorite fabric! This decoupage mirror is an easy home decor project for beginners.

Skills Required: Beginner. You’re going to be brushing Mod Podge on fabric, cutting pieces to fit the fame, and then Mod Podging them down. I’ll give you some secrets to make it easy!

Decoupage mirror frame

So yesterday I showed you how I added a little flair to the top of a Target table. What I didn’t share yesterday is how I revamped a mirror with the same pillowcase! I’m so thrilled about it that I wanted to share my additional decoupage idea with you today.

I had a LOT of fabric leftover from that pillowcase and nothing to do with it, so I got a mirror from Target too (seriously, this thing was under $10) and added the fabric to the edges using decoupage.

I think this table and mirror set would be perfect for a dorm room or first apartment. Or really anyone that just wants to customize their space with a cute fabric craft. Here’s how I made this decoupage mirror.

Gather These Supplies

If you’d like to see the pillowcase, here it is. I had a lot of fabric left over after the table. More than enough to do my decoupage mirror frame!

Prepare the Fabric

To begin, cut the pillowcase open on one end and prepare the fabric with Mod Podge. Place it down on a piece of wax paper.

All you do is paint a medium layer of Podge over the top and let it dry. You’re doing this to prevent fraying when you cut it to fit the mirror frame.

Cut to Fit

Here’s where things are a bit different than what I did with the table. You’ll want to use a straight edge and craft knife to cut the fabric in long, thin strips (four of them). Make sure the width is enough to fit over the edge of the mirror.

Then set your fabric on the mirror and cut on fabric on the diagonal at each corner. It’s fine if you have fabric that overlaps the edges still.

Attach the Fabric to the Frame

Decoupage the fabric down to the edges of the mirror frame, working your way around. Let dry. Then flip the mirror over and trim with your craft knife.

Here you go – a decoupage mirror frame to go with your table! It’s an easy way to revamp something old, or spend just a few bucks on something plain and jazz it up yourself. Enjoy.
