DIY Nautical Hamptons Mirror

DIY Nautical Hamptons Mirror

This tutorial shows you how to make your very own nautical Hamptons style mirror for your home decor.

What you need

Round wood (20 inches)

Round mirror (13 inches)

Rope (20 feet)

Glue gun + glue sticks

Twine (I used raffia, but any material will do!)

Tape

Jute ribbon (30 inches)

Instructions

 

Process

Locate the centre of the wood and paste the mirror in the centre using your glue gun.

 

To create the rope coil frame, start coiling the rope around the mirror, taping it down to the surface as you go to keep it in place.

Mark the meeting point of the rope ends, cut, and glue them together.

Coil the next piece of rope, running your glue gun between the two coils. (Note: Don’t glue it down to the wood, only between the ropes).

Mark the meeting point of the rope ends, cut, and glue them together.

Repeat steps 3, 4, and 5 until the rope coils meet the mirror.

Once the glue dries, slide the coils off the wood and remove any tape.

Cut 15 inches of leftover rope, coil it down, and use hot glue to the rest of the frame. Make sure it’s in the same area where the coils meet.

Wrap the frame to the hanger using twine (I used raffia, but any material will do!). It doesn’t have to be perfect as we’ll cover that up on the next step – it’s just to add extra security to make the hanger sturdy.

 

Wrap 10 inches of jute ribbon around the frame (one just over the hanger, and two at the bottom)

 

Flip the frame and use your glue gun to attach the whole thing to the mirror.
