Super Easy Round Studded Mirror DIY

round studded mirror DIY

For our Cottage Renovation project, I wanted to have a round mirror to hang above the console table in the dining room. Our budget was seriously pushing red though, so I had to choose between buying a table lamp or a mirror. Knowing I could make a cool mirror, I bought the lamp, a pre-cut round mirror, and got to work! If you have a little spot that could do with something über trendy, then this round studded mirror DIY is for you!

You will need:

  • Mirror (buy one pre-cut or have one cut at your local glass shop)
  • Chipboard circle, cut to 10mm bigger than the mirror.
  • 4mm Hardboard, cut to 50mm strips that are long enough to go around the chipboard circle.
  • Chipboard screws
  • Matt black spray paint
  • Double-sided foam tape
  • Brass upholstery tacks
  • Metal to metal adhesive
  • Brass chain or leather strap – I was going to use the chain and then I remembered that I have an old belt laying around, begging to be used!


//STEP 1

Use the chipboard screws to fix the hardboard strips around the perimeter of the chipboard.

Fix the upholstery tacks around the perimeter, equally spaced. To cover the chipboard screws, cut the pin from the tack and fix over the screw with metal to metal adhesive.

//STEP 4

Fix the leather strap to the frame with the brass tacks.

Fix the mirror to the frame using the double-sided tape. I used 2 layers to create some added depth.

Now, look at yourself in the mirror and smile!

Happy making!

  1. Hi there,

    I absolutely love this mirror! What a great idea. Please could you tell me where you got the different materials?

    1. Hi Karimi, thanks for your question! It’s really just basic supplies from my local hardware store (except for the belt, which is from my husband’s cupboard ;-). I bought the round mirror off the shelf, but if you can’t find one to the size you want, you can have it cut at your local glass/mirror supplier. Hope your mirror turns out great! g
