This natural mirror style is the easiest kind of mirror to make. It also doesn’t have to include flowers! You could use other natural looking items like faux leaves, stones, pinecones or even seasonal items like pine branches and holly. It really only takes a mirror, some glue and whatever items you plan to glue on your mirror. Click here for a more detailed tutorial.
