DIY in a Day brings you step-by-step instructions for easy projects that will spruce up your space — within 24 hours (or less!).

Rust, mustards, and dusty rose pinks are still on trend for home decor — and we love it. Believe it or not, this home decor DIY project is so simple to make, yet it looks like you bought it from a high-end home decor brand. The earthy tones of the yarn with the natural wood on a circle mirror will look stunning in any home or room.

We made this using a 14-inch wood circle piece and a 12-inch mirror. You can find such a variety of wood and mirror sizes online to make this project any size you want. The 3mm rope or cording fits perfectly using three pieces around the top and side edges of the wood. You can use a bigger rope and then just add two colors of yarn as well.

Things You'll Need

Step 1

Attach the glass mirror to the wood using Gorilla Glue. You can also use specific mirror glue or Liquid Nails from the hardware store. Place books on top of the mirror to allow to adhere and dry.

Step 2

Cut three pieces of rope (3mm) at 20 inches. Add some quick-dry glue to the end of one rope and start wrapping yarn around the rope. Make sure to smooth the end of rope and yarn with your fingers so you can have a clean end of rope.

Step 3

Continue wrapping yarn around rope. Once you have wrapped all the way to the other end of rope, add quick-dry glue and smooth end of yarn and rope. Wrap the other two pieces of rope with yarn.

Step 4
