    How to antique a mirror [JB says--I did this on small craft store mirrors for a project. I like it, but it was a lot harder to get the paint off the backs than I thought. Also I would leave the acid on for a shorter time, then see if it needed more. I flew a little close to the sun on some of them! Last, I used a combo of antique bronze and gold spray paint for my spots.]

    Nice styling. Maybe use a different message (because this one won't happen when I start school!)

    Paint a circular wooden plaque and 32 clothespins- use hot glue to affix a smaller round mirror to the center of the plaque. Place a dot of hot glue one inch in from the closed end of a pin, and adhere to the mirror. Space the next pin ½ inch over and adhere; repeat, finish, screw a large sawtooth hanger back and mount.
