How to make a Rope Mirror

Make a beautiful rope mirror - The Martha Stewart way.

You will need:

1/2-inch-thick natural-fiber rope 

Unframed 10-inch round mirror

 Cement glue

Painters' tape



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.
