How to make a Rope Mirror

MAKE A BEAUTIFUL ROPE MIRROR - THE MARTHA STEWART WAY




MATERIALS

·         1/2-inch-thick natural-fiber rope 
·         Unframed 10-inch round mirror
·         Cement glue
·         Painters' tape

STEPS
STEP 1
Measure and cut 2 segments of rope, one to fit around the mirror’s outer edge, the other to fit just inside the first.

STEP 2
Glue rope to mirror, lining up the ends for a neat seam.



STEP 3
Secure with painters' tape until dry.


STEP 4
Once dry, make a knotted hanger: Cut a 45-inch length of rope, and tie a knot on both ends (we used a variation on the figure-eight knot; see diagram).

STEP 5
Glue knotted ends of rope to sides of mirror; one knot should cover the seams. Secure with painters' tape until dry.
