Here's how I did it:
Gather your materials. I used a cheap mirror from Ikea (9.99!), some rope from Home Depot, and a glue gun. The thicker rope was around 1.00/ft and I got 40 feet but I had about 8-10 feet left over. Per mirror I would guess I used about 15 feet of rope. Plus I bought some thinner rope to hide the cut edges of the thicker stuff. More on that in a bit.
I dry-fit the rope around the outer edge of the mirror and then cut it off with some thick shears. I used the glue gun to adhere the rope to the mirror, glueing all the way around. I did that three times, making sure that the next row of rope was really tight to the previous row so that the mirror wasn't visible between the rows.
Once I had the three rows in place, I need to cover up the cut edges of the rope. I used some thinner rope and tucked and then glued it in place. It hides the cut edges really well and adds a nice detail to the mirror.
The final result:
I've wanted to do something like this for a long time and it was totally one of those "Why did I wait so long" projects. It could not be easier!
