How to Make a Mirror Nautical and Fresh With Rope
This mirror went from blah and boring to totally beachy. HGTV Magazine shows you how.
- 1/4"-diameter white cotton rope
- 1/2"-diameter white rope
Remove the mirror from its frame. Paint the frame off-white, and let dry.
Make the five “straps” for the mirror frame out of thin rope: Cut four pieces of thin rope and glue them side-by-side with fabric glue. Set aside.
Cut enough pieces of the thicker rope to fully cover the frame; they should be long enough to wrap all the way around it. Lay out the pieces, with the ends meeting at the bottom center (you’ll cover those with a “strap” later).
Once you’re happy with the placement of the ropes, hot-glue them in place. Then hot-glue the “straps” on top, as shown below.
Attach a decorative loop at the top with hot glue. Hang the mirror from its back (not from the loop).
