Use a soft brush to paint your mirror sparingly with light-colored paint. This is to give it a slightly distressed nautical look.
Apply Hot Glue
Apply hot glue to a 6-inch outer edge section of the mirror, and gently set one end of the rope over it, pushing it against the outer edge.
Press Rope in place in Sections
Continue applying glue to 6-inch sections at a time, wrapping the rope around the mirror, until you have completely wrapped the rope twice around the mirror.
Use the scissors to cut the rope where it meets with the other end where you started wrapping.
Pick the Orientation for your Mirror
Before you go any further you need to flip the mirror over to have a look at the back of the mirror. You’ll want to check where the mirror hanger is and if there is more than one pick which way will be ‘up’ for your mirror.
I used a found collection of 6 shells in different sizes and used the hot glue gun to attach it to the upper left-hand side of the mirror in a grouping.
