Rope Mirror How-To

Source: Martha Stewart Living, August 2011


  • 1/2-inch-thick natural-fiber rope (from home-supply stores)

  • Unframed 10-inch round mirror

  • Cement glue

  • Painters' tape


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

  3. Secure with painters' tape until dry.

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