Decorating for Christmas is really fun for young and old and brings the festive atmosphere into your home. It’s just part of the festive activities like baking and decorating cookies and gingerbread houses. You decorate every corner of the house – living room, kitchen, hallway and even the bathroom get a Christmassy touch! One element of the interior that deserves a special decoration (and which you may have overlooked) is the mirror. Browse through our ideas and find out how to decorate a mirror for Christmas.
How to Decorate a Mirror for Christmas and Give the Interior a Festive and Cheerful Look?
To decorate a mirror you can use a variety of materials – stencils, snowflakes, candles, coniferous branches and cones, fairy lights, Christmas themed stickers, tree ornaments, beads, tinsel, cotton balls.
Decorating a mirror in the hallways or living room is the easiest way to create a festive mood. With Christmas window stickers you can decorate not only windows, but also mirrors, glass doors or other smooth surfaces in no time at all. Most of them are self-adhesive and even reusable.
You can also use double-sided adhesive tape to attach decorations made of paper or wood to the mirror. The glue residues can then be easily removed with a sponge and washing-up liquid. Of course, suction cups are also a good idea if the decoration has a loop to hang it up.
How to Decorate a Mirror for Christmas with Artificial Snow
Artificial snow is very easy to use. All you need is a stencil and spray snow. Attach the stencil to the mirror with painter’s tape and spray the snow on the stencil. Let it dry, remove the stencil, and the snow decoration is ready!
Wipeable Chalk Pens
Chalk pens are ideal for decorating a mirror for Christmas, because the liquid chalk ink is super easy to wipe off the smooth surface with a damp cloth. And the best thing is that the chalk markers are also available in metallic colors.
What is the best place for your new Christmas wreath? On the wall or on the door? Here’s a great idea: when the wreath hangs in front of a mirror, it really stands out and looks twice as beautiful!
Fir garlands can be attached to the mirror frame and create a winter atmosphere in the house. Fresh fir branches are unfortunately not suitable for this decoration, because they will dry out without water and lose their needles. However, there are wonderful alternatives on the market that look similar to real fir branches.
Fairy lights spread a festive glow everywhere. You can drape the fairy lights around the window frame as you wish and even form silhouettes such as a star or a Christmas tree. The lights shine even brighter because their light is reflected by the mirror.
Christmas Tree Ornaments
During the holiday season you can enjoy yourself with lavish decorations. Tree ornaments will make the mirror look almost like a Christmas gift! If you use the mirror for makeup and hairdressing, decorate only the top or on the side so that you can still see yourself in it.
