DIY Indian Inspired Wall Mirror

February 2nd, 2017

For this DIY I was really inspired by Shisha embroidery, which is typically found in Asian countries such as China, Pakistan, India and others as well. It the art, yes the art, of sewing on little mirror pieces on to fabric while creating a beautiful and colorful embroidered pattern around the mirror.

This particular DIY Wall Mirror  I created, was inspired by this Indian banjara mirror, I really love the colors and the use of beads and cowrie shells on the exterior. I wanted to zoom  in  on a just one mirror and create a larger version for my wall.
