Decorate for Fall with a DIY Twig Mirror

Have you decorated for Fall? Well, of course, I meant to do so, but I got stymied on my mantle. I know I need something large to go over it, but I'm at a loss for what. I used to have a mirror there, but it really didn't do much for the room since it was frameless. Then my husband built a frame for it, but it didn't seem to go with the rest of the decor in the room. So, we've relocated the mirror, and I've got a blank mantle to work with. Thankfully, Lisa has some great step-by-step tips on how to decorate a mantle. I've got it on my to-do list...I'm just waiting for some inexpensive inspiration.

But just because I didn't get around to decorating my mantle doesn't mean that I haven't done any fall decorating. Just last week I made a fun mirror that is a great way to decorate for fall.  The finished size is about 12-inches in diameter -- just perfect for a Fall accent mirror. Best of all, this DIY Twig Mirror is so incredibly inexpensive to make - the main materials cost a mere $2! Wanna see how I did it? Head on over to DIY Your Way today for my step-by-step tutorial on how to make this sweet little twig mirror!
