Wood Beaded Mirror DIY

4 Materials
1 Hour

I have been seeing those pretty wood beaded mirrors all over and loving them.

Being Mrs. Frugal I decided to take a round mirror that I’ve had for a couple of years and these wood bead halves and simply make my own! I can't get over how simple this project was to do and how effective it is.

Take a look at how I did this so easily. I'd love to know if you give this a try too!

All I used for this project is an old mirror, the wood bead halves, Danish Oil, and E6000!

These are some of the mirrors I've seen that I loved but definitely could not justify the price tag!

Here are the wood beaded mirrors from Kirklands

I started by staining my bead halves with the Danish oil and let them dry overnight.

I then used the E6000 and glued the beads down to the metal on the mirror and then let them sit over night.

That's it! How simple is that?

How gorgeous! Such a simple way to jazz up a plain mirror.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Can I glue beads directly to a mirror?

    Beautiful. But what size bead did you use?

    For anyone who wants to recreate this project, but is not confident that they can get the beads equally spaced apart by just eye-balling it, or if you are not sure if your beads will fit evenly on your frame size, I would suggest to 'place then paste'.

    Place the beads going around the entire mirror first, then remove one at a time and glue on the spot.

    Yes, it would take a little more time than glueing all the beads in one go around, but if accuracy is important to you, it will be worth the effort.
