Day 77: Mirror and Bow Holder in ONE!

Yes, I glued each of those size 8 beads....=)
I bought two identical mirrors at Goodwill a few weeks back, and thought it was about time that I actually finished some projects rather than fight with my flat braid for another day (and YES, we are STILL FIGHTING....bah, flat braid).  So I threw all of this out there to think about using to make a bow holder for my daughter's room as I have had the itch to make her more cute little bows but didn't really have a good place to put them.  I love hot glue!

Supplies: Decorations on my Goodwill Mirror

I had some neat paper from Papyrus that had embroidery on it, and I added it to the back of a bunch of glass decorative pebbles that come in a big bag at craft stores in the floral department....and then I didn't get around to doing anything else with these pretty little blue beauties until TODAY!

The mirror was already framed silver, and I thought that worked well since each of the bows would be different colors in the end.  When she has all of the silver things filled up, it could be quite crazy.  We painted stripes on one wall back when we moved into this house in 2005.  It still fits her vibrant personality!  I think the blue accents with beads and such help tie it into the room as well.
Check out the reflection of her room in the picture.....there is some unruly reality for you!  This is HER WORLD!  If you could see the floor, you would see that she has all of her pet rocks lined up for a spa treatment (bath, polish, and massage....yep).
