  • TIP: Vary where the ends of the rope are for each new row so that all of them aren't in the same exact side.

TIP: Here you can see how I lay the rope around to see how long of a piece I will need before I cut the rope to the correct length.

      It's about 12-14 inches in diameter finished, so you definitely could use a pizza circle from the box!

    Very clever and easily enough done. I wonder if I could double up on the cardboard, in order to possibly stabilize the back of the mirror? Thanks for sharing your idea, I am sure the ladies will enjoy this craft very much !!
