Easy Stick Framed Round Mirror
Of course, you can buy these round mirror plates at any shop but there`s always a cool way to do it yourself. So, try this cheap and easy rustic home décor idea that looks expensive!
Unfortunately, I don’t have any wood working skills, so I had to come up with something creative for this project and the first thing that came to mind were sticks! So the project began…
Things you need:
- 10 inch round mirror plate (or any size you’d prefer)
- A piece of cardboard large enough to give the mirror at least a 2 inch frame
- Lots of sticks
- Hot glue gun
- Box cutter or razor blade for cutting the cardboard
- Picture hanging Command strips (if you plan on hanging it on the wall)
Place the mirror on top of your cardboard, and use a pencil to trace a frame around the mirror large enough to hold your sticks. You could also use a large bowl or bucket as a template if you can find something the right size.
Simply use a box cutter to cut it out. A sharp blade works best.
Hot glue the mirror directly onto the cardboard, centering it as evenly as possible. You will NOT be able to move it once you put it down, so it may be a good idea to trace a circle around the mirror first so that you have a good visual once you’re ready with the glue.
Start gluing your sticks onto the cardboard right along the edge of the mirror. Slowly move your way around until the entire cardboard frame is covered. Once I got all the way around, I layered more sticks on top until I was happy with the outcome.
