DIY Mirror Project – Nautical Style

Since I have a more coastal style in my home I wanted to make a cool nautical mirror to match my decor. I did this simple mirror project with some rope and a foam wreath.

Craft Materials

Before starting this project, you’ll need the following materials:

Here’s another fun craft I did for Make it Fun’s new blog.  They have some pretty amazing craft & projects over there that you have to check out!!

I’ve been so excited to get started on my new project.  I’ve had it in mind for awhile now.  A super Simple DIY Mirror Project!!

Since I have a more coastal style in my home I wanted to make a cool nautical mirror to match my decor.  I’ve seen these mirrors in the stores and they can get pretty pricey.  I was looking at one at TJ Maxx and I thought heck, I can make one of these myself for a lot cheaper.  I headed home to look at my wreath stash (I have a TON) to find my perfect size.

Supplies needed to make this project: 

  • FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam: Wreath (any size)
  • Rope
  • Ribbon
  • Strong Epoxy Glue
  • Round Mirror (to fit your wreath size)
  • Low-Temp Glue Gun & Glue
  • Straight Pins

I found the perfect size wreath for my mirror.  Let’s get started!!

Step 1 – Wrap Wreath

I wrapped my wreath in some brown ribbon I found at Dollar Tree.  I used a total of 4 packages of ribbon to cover the wreath.

Step 2 – Add Rope

Next, it’s time to add your rope!

I started wrapping the rope from the inside of the wreath and working my way around.  I used some “handy dandy” straight pins to keep the rope in place.

Step 3 – Add Mirror

Now let’s add the mirror.  I found this mirror at my local craft store for around $5.00.  I pulled out some Gorilla epoxy glue I already had and added it to the back of the wreath.  Then I gently put the mirror on top and added some books on top of that.  I let dry for an hour.

For extra security, I went around the edge with some low-temp glue.  I don’t think that mirror is going anywhere now!!

Finishing Touches

Now that I’m finished, I’m ready to display!!  I actually plan on making two more of these and hanging them on the wall with some heavy duty command strips.
