Bamboo Stake Mirror
Now that you have your supplies gathered it’s time to make these DIY wall mirrors. The steps are very simple. The first one I’ll be sharing with you is the bamboo stake mirror.
I used a 6″ mirror for this project.
Step 1: Cut down the bamboo stakes
Warm up your hot glue gun before you get started. Next, cut the bamboo stakes to 3 inches. You can use scissors or garden shears for this step. You’ll need quite a few for this. I cut down 6 full stakes to get the desired amount.
Step 2: Wrap the embroidery hoops
Next, you’ll want to wrap the embroidery hoops with the raffia paper ribbon. Add a small amount of hot glue to attach the ribbon and then rap it. I used 2 embroidery hoops an 8″ and a 6″
Step 3: Attach the bamboo
Align the hoops so the 6″ hoop is inside the 8″ hoop and centered. You’ll add a small dot of hot glue to each hoop and attach the bamboo. Keep repeating that process until you’ve covered the entire hoop.
Step 4: Attach the mirror
Next you’ll want to add a small amount of hot glue to the back side of the bamboo and then attach the mirror.
Step 5: Add a loop
Using a piece of 3 mm macrame cord cut a small piece, tie a knot at the bottom creating a loop and then attach the loop with some hot glue. Your mirror is ready to be hung.
Next up is a macrame wall mirror. This project is super easy to do just takes a little bit of time combing out the cord at the end.
Supplies you’ll need:
- 6″ mirror
- 6″ metal hoop
- Hot glue
- 6 mm macrame cord
Step 1: Cut the macrame cord
Start off by cutting your macrame cord to about 6″. I’m not exactly sure how many peices I used. I would cut a group and then attach and then cut some more and repeated that until I was done.
Step 2: Attach the macrame cord
For this step, you’ll want to use the larks head knot. This will loop the cord around the metal loop. Continue this process until the metal loop is filled with macrame cord.
Step 3: Unwind the cord
Next, you’ll want to loosen the cord to make it fray. To do this I used a plastic comb. You can use a dog brush, your fingers, or a plastic comb you have around the house.
Step 4: Attach the mirror
Using a big of hot glue you’ll want to attach the macrame loop to the mirror.
Step 5: Cut the cord
Now that the mirror is attached it’s time to cut the cord down to size. You probably have too much cord. I cut this down to about 2″ so it would stay up. You can add hairspray to the cord, this is completely optional. I didn’t do that.
Step 6: Attach a loop
To hang this you’ll need to attach a loop on the back. Take a small piece of the 3mm cord and make a loop. Add some hot glue and attach it to the back. It’s ready to be hung.
Small DIY Wall Mirror String
I had a lot of small mirrors left over and I didn’t want them to go to waste so I created a string of mirrors. This was really simple and think it looks really cool on the wall.
- 3mm cord
- Wooden beads (I used the smallest ones I had)
- Scotch tape
- Small mirrors
Step 1: Measure the cord
To start you’ll want to measure out how much cord you’ll need I created this with 9 small mirrors and gave a 2″ distance in between each mirror.
Step 2: Loop the top
Create a loop at the top and then measure 2″ down. Attach the smallest peel and stick mirror. 1 used 2 mirrors of the same size attaching them together in between the cord.
Step 3: Thread in beads
Next you’ll want to thread in 10 small beads. To make this easer, add a bit of scotch tape to the end to help thread the beads in without the cord fraying.
Step 4: Add a mirror and repeat
After the 10 beads have been added repeat this process. I went in order of 2 smallest mirror 1 larger, 1 larger, 1 largest, then went in the opposite order. I also added 10 small beads to each space between the mirrors.
Make sure to use 2 mirrors per space. Using the peel and stick mirrors fits perfectly.
Step 5: Loop and hang
To finish off this process create a loop at the bottom. Now your DIY wall mirror is ready to be hung.
The last mirror I created I didn’t get on camera. This is really simple. I took a 4″ peel and stick mirror then attached medium sized wooden beads around the edge of the mirror using hot glue.
I then attached a small loop on the back and hung it up.
These DIY wall mirrors were really simple and I saved a ton of money making these myself.
