Round leather strap mirrors are trending pretty hard these days. I’ve been wanting one for my dining area and since they can be very pricey, I pretty much put it on the back burner for now. That is until this mirror project for the FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Blog came up.
I was looking through my foam stash and realized I could make a leather strap mirror myself! All you need is some foam, a craft mirror, a wood veneer sheet and a leather strap! You could even use a leather belt if you wanted to. Here’s how I made the mirror~
DIY Wood Leather Strap Mirror
- Make It: Fun® Foam Disc: 5- 7/8 x 15/16 inch
- Wood Veneer Sheet
- Round Mirror: 6 inch
- Leather Strap: 3/4 x 19 inch
- Upholstery Nails: 2
- Low-Temp Glue & Gun
- Rotary Cutter & Matt
Use low-temp glue to adhere the mirror to the center of the foam disc.
Cut two wood veneer strips to 1 1/4 inch wide.
Wrap the veneer around the foam and mirror, measure and cut the ends to meet exactly together. Glue the wood to the foam and to the edge of the mirror. Glue the leather straps to each side of the mirror.
Cut the sharp pointed end of the upholstery nail down to the cap. Glue the cap to the leather strip on the end of the strap and that’s it! This would look super cute in an entry way or bathroom. You can up the sizes of the foam, leather, and mirror for a larger mirror.
