Adding acrylic paint to wooden legs

Start by painting each of the four wooden legs with acrylic paint. Allow the legs to dry after painting.

Applying Mod Podge to mirror

Next, take your paintbrush and apply a thin circle of Mod Podge around the mirror. Then, sprinkle the faux snow over the Mod Podge and shake off any excess snow.

Attaching wooden legs to mirror

Flip the mirror over so the bottom is facing up. Prop it on a wooden lid to keep the faux snow in place while attaching the wooden legs. Use hot glue to attach the four wooden legs to the mirror.

Adding decorations

After attaching the legs, flip the mirror over. Use hot glue to add mini decorations to the mirror.
Finally, add craft gems around the mirror (this step is optional). You can also add mini lights to your decoration to make it look more festive.
