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)
- 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.
I had to use a total of 4 packages of the rope for this mirror. But it looks so pretty right??!!
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!!
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.
