9 Ways to Upcycle Glossy Magazines into Awesome Interior Design Art
1. Spikey Mirror Frame
This awesome idea from DIY Gadgets is a quick way to create a modern and funky looking mirror without spending a lot of cash. This will be a welcome prospect for anyone who has gone to look at the prices of new mirrors, which can actually be in the hundreds for nothing but a standard shape of glass. Keep in mind that this can be done for any shape, not just the circular example they gave.
All you have to do is create a base or find a way to secure the pieces to the mirror itself. I would recommend something like cardboard that can be easily punctured, or even attached pieces of paper. Then, you roll up the pages of the magazine into tight spikes and attach them all around. The effect is really cool, like a multi-colored sun.
