A mirror hung over a mantel is embellished with a stenciled overlay of glass. Ask a glazier to cut a sheet of glass and a mirror to fit inside frame.
Leaf-Stencil Mirror How-To
1. Enlarge templates to desired size, and trace onto paper; cut out. Cut adhesive shelf liner into a 10-inch-wide border for glass. Trace bamboo template on adhesive liner so it's parallel to an outside edge (3 inches in); the stem's end should be 1 inch from adjacent side. Flip template over and trace, abutting the bottom of the first (to create a node). Repeat around border, flipping and overlapping at corners; adjust template placement, if necessary, so border fits all around. Trace leaf template atop bamboo as desired. Cut out stencil with a utility knife. Peel border off back; adhere to glass.
2. With enamel paint and a bristle brush, paint over stencil onto glass, and let dry overnight; peel off. Bring to glazier for installation. For easy cleaning, the stenciled glass should face inward.
