DIY Rope Mirror Ballard Inspired

I decided this year our powder room needed a facelift. I’ve had the same old stuff in there for the last 5 years and it was getting, well, pretty drab. I shopped around everywhere for just the right accessories.

I wanted a more natural, yet up to date stylish look to the room than the previous setting. In my decorative decor search I just could not find the right wall art for this room, so I gave up. I ended up hanging this plain white round mirror in there for awhile, but it was just missing something.

Then one day it hit me, I’ll make one of the cool rope mirrors I saw on Ballard Designs website. I used the white plastic mirror as a base for the rope. This project was so easy and fast, it literally took 30 minutes to make. Now my powder room is complete. Here’s my version of how it’s done~

Easy jute wrapped mirror



Glue rope to mirrorTake the end of your jute rope, trim the end in a slant and start gluing your rope on the inner part of the circle frame. Add the glue to the back of the rope.

Once you get the inner circle done you can put the glue onto the frame itself and press the ropes together as you wrap to keep them from gaping open.

Glue rows of rope to edge of mirrorContinue on until the end. Cut the end of your rope in a slant and tuck under or close to the rope above it.

add rope to back of mirrorHot glue loops on the back top portion of the mirror and add your bucket handle. And that’s it! Super easy and so cute!

    1. No need to, this particular mirror is really lightweight plastic. Maybe on a larger one.
