Easy Breezy Stained Glass

excessfroufrou(7)May 1, 2011

I found this stained glass translucent adhesive at a TS for really cheap. I had a pair of these mirrors in the garden for a couple of years now, so I decided to spruce them up. I realize this may not last forever, but I have them in a shady spot and I wrapped the edges around to seal them. I like the way they turned out, especially for $2.

Frou, That is so nice. You are really creative to think of using the mirrors for this project. It looks so good in your garden. Is that a Rose of Sharon bush? - Marylee

That's beautiful showing through the bush. I found something similar on line and you really did get a good deal.

It's beautiful! I LOVE the colors. I was looking at some of that stuff in a hardware store. It was not cheap originallly, lol. Never thought to put it on a mirror. LOVE what you've done with it!

Great Idea! I would be tempted to cut it up to shapes I wanted!!! Do you seal/spray the back of the mirrors so they last longer outside?

Wow! That turned out very well! Looks great against the wood fence and brightens up a shady area. Great idea!

Wow Your garden area looks like my memorial garden! My fence looks JUST like yours, but I don't have a pretty, colorful mirror in MY garden! I'm jealous!

You did a great job. I love it being a mirror vs. just glass because you can enjoy the reflection of your plants as they blow in the breeze which doubles the movement and texture of your garden! GREAT idea! And cheap, too!!!

It really was an easy project, I really like instant gratification. Marylee, that is a Rose of Sharon, I never heard them called that till I was an adult, we always called them Altheas. Grannytoo, after seeing your link to my exact paper for $65.00 a roll, I think I may go back and pick up the other 5 rolls at $2 each. I suspected it was something good because it was made in Germany.
