Make a Wedding Gift Using Cricut: Faux Etched Mirror Tray
Looking for a personalized gift for a special couple? Something unique for a wedding or anniversary? Cricut to the rescue! This faux etched mirror relies on frosted spray paint and Cricut removable vinyl. The lucky recipients can hang their new custom mirror on a wall or use it as a table tray.
- Removable vinyl
- Transfer tape
- New or thrift store mirror or mirror tray
- Frosted glass spray paint
- Rub N Buff
Measure your mirror to determine the size for your cut design. Create the cut design in Cricut Design Space using your choice of text. A chunky text, with thick letters, shows up best on the finished project. I am using a common system font called Rockwell.
Make the project, cutting the lettering from any color removeable vinyl. Weed the vinyl to remove the excess.
Clean and dry the mirror well. Apply the lettering to the clean mirror using transfer paper.
Lay a sheet of clean copy paper (or similar) over the vinyl to protect it from the oils in your hands while you rub the lettering with your fingers to ensure good adhesion to the mirror.
Cover the mirror frame with tape or paper to protect from overspray while using the spray paint. Spray the mirror with frosted glass spray paint following the manufacturer’s instructions. You may need to apply several coats of the spray paint to achieve a uniform frosted appearance. Allow to dry. Remove the vinyl from the glass.
Decorate the mirror frame using Rub N Buff following the manufacturer’s instructions. I also added a thin strip of vinyl around the edge of the mirror for some extra color.
And that’s it! Your special couple is going to love it!

I love the juxtaposition of the natural wood with glitter iron-on! Make it simple and secure with an EasyPress heat press machine. Your favorite couple will be glad to display this sign a shelf or mantle as a remembrance of their special day.
This little art quilt uses tulle as a mostly invisible backing for an iron-on design layered on top of a heavily embellished fabric collage.
