Materials Needed:

  • yarn (any color)

Step 1

Pop out the mirror from the frame if you can, or tape it off. Spray-paint the frame black. Let dry.

Step 2

Plan out the pattern you’ll make with yarn. We took a picture of our mirror, then drew a design of triangles and lines on a printout of it.

Step 3

Using a bent-tip tapestry needle (sold at crafts stores), weave thick yarn through the holes in the caning to make your design. Knot each piece in the back to secure.
