DIY Leather and Eucalyptus Mirror

DIY Eucalyptus Hanging Mirror @themerrythoughtI’m writing this post in a gorgeous apartment in NYC (dedication, folks!) I’ve been doing so much exploring around the city and I’m feeling so inspired to dive into new projects when I get home! Until then, here’s a project I made last week!
I’ve been meaning to make a leather hanging mirror for months now and when I finally decided to make one the other day, I had extra dried eucalyptus laying on the floor from the wall hanging so I added a few pieces! In under five minutes you can have one of these hanging on your wall too!DIY Eucalyptus Hanging Mirror @themerrythoughtWhat you need:
-10″ Round Mirror
-Strip of Leather
-Dried Eucalyptus
-Hot Glue Gun

How to make it:
-Use hot glue gun to attach both ends of the leather to the back of the mirror. Cut and arrange pieces of eucalyptus and glue in place. That’s it! (It’s much stronger than you would think – I did use a softer leather though.)

      It was actually just scrap leather I had from an old damaged leather jacket that I cut apart!ReplyCancel

    There are also special mirror adhesives you can get, turns out some glues can affect the mirror backing and show through.ReplyCancel
