Zebra Tissue Mirror

I'm apologizing ahead of time for any errors or weird phrases in this post. I'm writing this while watching the Rangers attempt to beat the Yankees in Game 3. So yeah, I'm a little distracted!

Anyway, while J was at his cousin's building a deer blind yesterday, I had a super girly day of chick flicks, chocolate and craftiness. I picked up a few things at Michael's, including a small unfinished mirror ($2.99) and a pack of zebra tissues from the $1 bin.


You know where this is going, right? Yep, time for some Modge Podging!


I painted the frame dark brown using some leftover paint samples, then tore the tissues into strips. I must say that it was very therapeutic. :)


I applied the strips...


Then applied a top coat of Podge to help stiffen the tissue.


Best thing about this type of project? It's {fairly} quick, and gave me several ideas for bigger projects.


It probably wouldn't have taken as long to make if I wasn't distracted by Channing Tatum's chiseled... ahem, anyway, not bad for four bucks!



Linking up to these fabulous parties:

Another great idea, Katie! It turned out so cool! I like just a hint of zebra pattern - this is perfect! ;)
