Hey guys! Meet Katie of Pincushion Creations, she’s taking over my blog for the day to show us how to make a super cute mirror out of those plate chargers you see at craft stores. This project costs less than 10 bucks to make, my kind of crafting! If you are a fan of all things woodland, like I am, you will absolutely adore Katie’s fabric fox bookend tutorial. Swoon. Logan needs this in his woodland room! I’ll turn it over to Katie now, while I head out to the fabric store to pick up material to make that sweet little fox.
Hi! I am so excited to be here! Vanessa is too sweet and she always has such fun projects! My name is Katie and I blog over at Pincushion Creations. I love to be crafty! I love to do anything from sewing, scrapbooking, using modge podge or attempting a yummy dessert. My most important role is being a wife and mommy! I have a sweet supportive husband, a chubby 15 month old son…and I am currently at the end of my first trimester with my second. I am due in January. Being crafty is definitely my special “mommy time”. 

I don’t have a picture of the actual materials I used to make this craft because it was a crafty I had started, didn’t like how it turned out and knew I would get back to it eventually.  When Vanessa contacted me and asked for a Crafting On A Dime project I knew it was the PERFECT excuse to tackle it again!

Plate Charger ($3)
Mirror ($3)
Fat Quarter & fabric scraps ($1)
Modge podge ($ 0)
Scrapbooking Letters ($1)

Total Project Cost: $8
–Your total could be less depending if you have hoards of fabric and scrapbooking stickers like me.

Step 1: Cut a circle out of your fabric about 2 inches wider than your charger plate

Step 2: Using your modge podge, glue your fabric to your plate.  You will have to fold over your back pieces.

Step 3: Once dried, apply your scrapbooking stickers to your fabric.  I modge podged the stickers as well for extra security.

Step 4: Apply some rolled fabric flowers.  My tutorial for them can be found here. You can also check out pinterest for more fun fabric flower ideas.

Step 5:  Hot glue your mirror to the charger.  Cut a piece of ribbon and hot glue to the back of your charger.  You could also use E-600.
