My project today actually started as an idea from my husband--for a couple of years now I've had this wall of Ikea mirrors over our kitchen table. I painted them brown and put squares of scrapbook paper in a few of them to make it a little more interesting.
When fall came this year, I painted some fake flowers with gold paint and put cream paper over each mirror.
My husband suggested candy canes in the center of each one, and I loved the idea, and felt like it was time to brighten everything up a bit too.
I took each brown frame and a painted it with a robin egg blue color. It took a few coats to cover the dark brown underneath, but when everything dried I sanded down the edges to reveal the brown underneath.
Then I cut white cardstock to cover each mirror section and used hot glue to attach a mini candy cane in each one. Cute and simple! And I'm pretty sure that my kids are old enough now that none of these will go missing. (Plus, the box I bought had 100 mini canes in it, so there are plenty to go around :)
I'd love to hear other candy cane decoration ideas too, since like I said, there are a few left over!
