Mirrors are like a secret weapon for your home, making everything lighter, brighter and – like magic – instantly bigger. Even if the only mirror you can get your hands on is something small and plain, there are DIY ways of giving it a little something extra, if you're interested. Ranging from permanent fixes to something just for the night, here are 5 different ways to dress up a frameless mirror.

1. With a sprig of greenery, like Sandra Lundin did above with her wall-mounted round mirror. She used Pistacia, but Eucalyptus or Italian Ruscus would be just as lovely.

2. By building a simple stand from unfinished Pine, like Caitlin did on The Merrythought for her tall rectangular mirror.

3. By hanging it with some cord. See how this DIY is done on FrkHansen.

4. With a faux painted-on frame. I mean, you've got a mirror without a frame, so why not do it yourself, like designer Kara Paslay did on her blog. It might also be fun to draw on frame details with a Sharpie, which you can remove easily with a dry erase marker when you're ready to change it up.

5. With a rope frame. Queen Martha (Stewart, for the uninitiated), shows us how it's done with just cement glue.
