Rope Mirror How-To




  • 1/2-inch-thick natural-fiber rope (from home-supply stores)
  • Unframed 10-inch round mirror
  • Cement glue
  • Painters' tape


  1. 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.

  2. Step 2

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

  3. Step 3

    Secure with painters' tape until dry.

  4. 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).

  5. Step 5

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

    Just purchased a mirror at Michael's. They have various sizes as well. I opted for the 12'' mirror as opposed to the 10''.
    Hope this turns out ok!

    Please send me the link to purchase the mirror. Martha said or or something to that effect but I can't locate that company. Thank you.

    I too would like to know the web site Martha mentioned in the project that the mirrors came from.

    Martha mentioned the name of a website for the mirrors on this project as well as other things you buy for the set. Would you provide the site?
