Yes! Even though it’s hard to believe, I made this beautiful mirror using posterboard and my cutting machine. Don't worry if you don't have a cutting machine you can cut the pieces by hand, download the PDF file from my blog Follow the step-by-step guide below .

Video Tutorial

If you don't have a cutting machine skip to 6:24 minute of the video.

Cut and fold the pieces

Cut all the pieces that you need for the mirror 21 large piece and 21 small pieces. 

Cut a circle

I cut a circle with a 9” diameter, and I drew another circle with a 7.5” diameter 

Arrange the pieces

Before gluing the pieces, I'm going to place the pieces to see if everything fits in place. 

Glue the pieces

Use a glue gun to glue the first row.

Glue the second row

All pieces are glue.

For this project, I'm using this mirror, which I got a couple of months ago at Target.

Remove the mirror from the frame.

Now I'm going to remove the frame from the mirror using my hairdryer; this helps dissolve the adhesive. The measure of the mirror by itself is 7.5 inches in diameter. 

Paint the pieces

I'm going to take these pieces outside to spraypaint them.

Glue the mirror back to the frame.

I'm using E-6000 adhesive. 

Glue a wood plaque to the posteboar design.

The wood place is going to help me attache the two piece together (Paper design and mirror)

Glue the mirror

Place a hook in the back

Ensure the hook is attached to the wooden paque.

Pin it!
