Learn how you can make your very own Copycat Anthropologie Inspired Gold Flower Mirror for less than half the price of the original Version.
Recently I have been on a mission of making knocks off versions of Anthropologie Home Decor Items.I first started with a Dollar Store Vase and made it in an Anthropologie Knock Off Vase for under a dollar.
I mean who doesn’t love Anthropologie! They have the cutest most colorful home decor pieces.
If I could I would purchase the entire store but then again the DIY person in me also knows that I can make it myself for a fraction of a cost.
And here I am today with this super easy Anthropologie Dupe Mirror using a thrift store mirror.
But before I jump into the actual makeover I wanted to share some more Anthro Inspired projects you might like!
There are so many different DIY versions of this Mirror and ways to recreate it but I chose the simple route of spray paint and faux flowers.
This was my original inspiration.
Before we begin let me show you how the mirror looked Originally.
I scored this fella at the Flea Market for about $5.
Tutorial for DIY Anthropologie Inspired Gold Flower Mirror
First off with everything you get from the thrift store or flea market is to fully disinfect it before you start painting it.
The Mirror I bought was a solid Oak Wood Mirror but it had a few scratches here and there but still perfect for my project.
It had the Oval shape like the original Anthro Version as well.
I taped off the mirror with the masking tape before I started to paint so I wouldn’t get the Gold paint on the actual Mirror.
Using a round brush I gave the outer edges of the mirror about two coats of the Gold paint.
Let that completely dry before moving onto the next step.
For the flower parts of the Mirror, I chose a bunch of Artificial flowers, leaves etc (that I already had at home) of varying sizes to attach all around the rim of the mirror.
Detach the flowers and leaves from the “stem” and spread it evenly on a surface area where you can spray paint them.
I used this gorgeous Gold Metallic spray paint and sprayed the flowers.
You will need to go back and spray the flowers a few times. You might also have to move the flowers around, flip them over and spray paint again to fully cover it.
This is how they looked after the Spray painting.
All uniform and same color which looked Great.
I kept the original Anthropologie Mirror image in front and tried to mimic its flower placement as much as I could for this step.
I specifically used a hot glue gun for this project as it makes it quicker to attach flowers but you could also use E6000 glue or Gorilla Glue as well.
Work in small sections until the entire rim of the mirror is covered with the flowers.
I played around with the placement and finally found which worked and this is how it turned out.
