Step 1:

Get the round cardboard and meter tape. Locate the center and mark it with a pen.

Step 2:

Glue the 0.7 inches of natural jute around the edges of the cardboard using hot glue. Once you reach the other end of the rope, wrap it with painter’s tape before cutting it with an exacto knife.

Step 3:

Take the end of the remaining 0.7 inches of natural jute and wrap it with painter’s tape. Glue it around the sides of the first round of natural jute, and make sure to wrap the ends again before cutting and gluing. Do this again 2 more times.

Step 4:

Cut the round center cardboard using an Exacto knife.

Step 5:

Measure 1.57 inches on both sides from the glued part of the jute, and mark with a pen or pencil. Wrap the natural jute twine around that part, then glue it with a glue gun. Once done, cut the excess jute.

Step 6:

Stick the cardboard with jute on the mirror using hot glue, press it then let it dry completely.
