I made these mirror pedestal end tables using items that I purchased from dollar tree. I used 8 of the 8 by 10. Mirrored frames as well as 8 of these square mirror candle holders I used craft sticks, some of these one-inch mirrors and gemstones that I purchased from Michaels as well as my fix-all adhesive glue, gun and glue sticks I'll leave the complete list of everything that I use down in the description box, so the first thing I did was remove these tabs and stickers from the back of my square candle holders, and I used my strong adhesive hot glue and craft sticks to attach those four mirrors together. I love about an inch and a half of empty space around my mirrors and then I added a second layer of the craft sticks in the opposite direction. I've been repeated. Those steps with my four remaining square mirror candle holders, but for this piece I only added one layer, because this is the bottom of my pedestal and I want the piece to be as fat as possible.
Next, I remove the 8 by 10 mirrors from their frames and then I use a combination of the strong adhesive and hot glue to attach four of those mirrors together. Here you see me adding the strong adhesive to both sides of my fourth mirror. I then placed this mirror right on top, as I used some painters tape to hold the box in place. While I added some additional hot glue to the inside of my mirrors, I made a second piece just like this one, using my 4 remaining 8 by 10 mirrors, and then I slit those 2 pieces together and use. My same painter's tape to help hold those in place while I use my strong adhesive and hot glue to attach craft sticks inside of those mirrors to hold them together. I allowed that to drive for about 20 minutes, and then I stood my design up added some of the strong adhesives to the top of those mirrors and then flipped it over and placed it on top of the bottom piece of my pedestal. I then added some additional strong adhesive because they fix all adhesive does not have a narrow tip.
This step got a little messy, but I did wipe away any excess glue before moving on to the next step, again a tit fix all adhesive to the top edges of my design, and then I just placed my pedestal top right. On top of that, once my top piece was placed, I waited for about 20 minutes for that glue to set, and then I flipped my design upside down and add hot glue around the perimeter of the piece that I just added then allow my entire piece to Dry overnight and then the next day I was ready to decorate my pedestal to keep this project 100 % dollar tree. I could have used some of the diamond wrap or some of the dollar tree ribbon, but instead, I decided to use some of these one-inch mirrors that I purchased from Michaels I'll put the details down in the description box. But these pieces were super inexpensive and I think that they added to the overall look of my design. I used a combination of the strong adhesive and the hot glue to attach all of my small mirrors, and, finally, to add a little bit more sparkle to my design. I also use hot glue to attach some gemstones to the design as well. I also added some of the gemstones to the mirrors in the center of my petal stools to complete the project. I can't clean my mirrors by removing any excess glue, strings or strong adhesive, and here was my finished. Look. I really love how these pedestal end tables turned out. I actually made two of them and I plan to add them to each end of the sectional.
