Ladies and Gentlemen, if I do say so myself – this right here had to of been one of the easiest DIY projects I’ve done in a long, long time. So easy in fact that I did the majority of it while laying in bed. (Yes, you read that right! My DIY obsessed self was fighting a stomach bug and yet that couldn’t even stop me from working on a project. That just goes to show how obsessed I am with keeping busy and letting my creative side run wild)
If you’d like to make something similar, here is a list of the supplies you will need:
- Metal Wreath * I purchased mine at Goodwill for $3.99 but any kind will do. Here is one from Walmart that is even cheaper although it does not have the distinct circle outline that the one I used has
- Raffia Paper Ribbon
- Heavy Duty Picture Hanger

First I began by cutting the raffia paper ribbon into different lengths. I’m not all about perfection and didn’t want it to look too uniform once it was added. I then grabbed groups of three strands at a time and began looping them through the wreath base.
Many hours and re-runs of Psych later it was time to add the mirror. To begin I took out my trusty E6000 and applied a generous amount to the back of the wreath then lowered the mirror onto it as gently as I could.
It was at this time when I realized that I’d need something heavy to weigh it down with so I grabbed the closest thing to me which just so happened to be a box filled with my spoiled cats many toys. The whole time it was drying she’d walk by while giving me the side-eye and silently looking like she wanted to kill me for disturbing her prized possessions.
Once the E6000 was fully dried I used a heavy duty picture hanger to hang the mirror on the wall and “fluffed” the raffia over it to disguise the unsightly gold color that was poking out.
Logging off until next time,
