Easily transform ordinary items from the hardware store into this unique and inexpensive mirror.
• A circle mirror and frame
• At least 40 shims (depending on the size of your mirror)
• Dark stain
• Small square of plywood
• Two (2) thumbtacks and a bit of wire.
• Elmer’s ProBond Advanced Glue
• Elmer’s ProBond Max Wood Glue
Step 1: Stain shims.
Step 2: Lay out a design. This design was created the same on four sides, then a design was created to go in between those.
Step 3: Carefully glue the pieces to each other with ProBond Max Wood Glue. The wood pieces should glue flush in most places.
Step 4: Cover with a board or the mirror and put something heavy on it to dry. Let dry overnight.
Step 5: Use the ProBond Max Wood Glue to attach a small square of plywood to the back, just big enough to cover the edges of the shims.
Step 6: Carefully flip the entire piece over and use ProBond Advanced Glue to attach the mirror to the wood
Step 7: Once the mirror is in place, put something heavy on it and let it dry for at least 24 hours to let both sides dry.
Step 8: To make a hanger, take a thin wire and make two small loops on either side and tack them to the side of the plywood piece.
