Before starting this project, you’ll need the following materials:
18 inch Driftwood Wreath, 12″ Round Mirror, Gorilla Glue
Back in April I did a DIY Driftwood Wall Mirror for Crafts Unleashed! I’m finally getting around to adding it to my blog. This was one of those projects, I just love!
When I saw this driftwood wreath I knew right away what I wanted to do with it – make a Driftwood DIY Wall Mirror. I got one sent to me and I knew it was perfect. I have seen driftwood mirrors and they can get pretty pricey, so to be able to make one for less then $30.00- that’s a bargain.
It took me less then 5 minutes to make, now that’s my kinda craft! Obviously the longest part is waiting for the glue to dry, but hey you’re just waiting now, the craft is done!
DIY DRIFTWOOD WALL MIRROR
When doing projects like these, Gorilla glue works best. I did a nautical rope mirror a couple months ago and the mirror was on pretty good! I knew it was my best option again.
Step 1 – Mark Your Spots.
I laid my mirror on the back of the wreath. The wreath is not completely flat on the back so I couldn’t just add glue everywhere. I had to mark the spots that were actually touching the mirror.
Step 2 – Add Your Glue.
I mixed up my glue and gently added it to the spots I marked. You do not want to add a lot, it will drip onto the mirror. Just enough to make sure the mirror holds. Then add some books on top and let dry overnight.
One of my favorite parts about this wreath is it already has a spot to hang it up. So no need to add a hook to the back!
This driftwood DIY mirror is not going anywhere! Believe me I tested it, I don’t want it falling off the back and breaking all over my floor.
I couldn’t be happier with how this driftwood DIY wall mirror turned out. I can’t wait to make several of these for the house, since they are so easy and inexpensive to make!
Working on diy projects for my house is one of my favorite things to do. So when I come up with a simple craft you can do in no time, I love to share them with everyone.
Especially this awesome driftwood wall mirror!
