Easy DIY Driftwood Mirror

How to make a Driftwood Mirror

If you haven’t noticed by now, I’m a huge coastal fan.  One project that has been on my to-do list for a long time is making a driftwood mirror.  A couple months ago I made a nautical rope mirror and I love how it turned out which inspired me to finally make my driftwood mirror.

Supplies needed to make this project:

  • FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam: Wreath (similar size to mirror)
  • Jute Twine
  • Driftwood
  • Round Mirror
  • Multi-Temp Glue Gun and Glue
  • Gorilla Glue Epoxy
  • Metal Picture Hanger


For my 12 inch mirror I found the 16 inch size foam wreath fit perfectly.  I started by wrapping the wreath form with jute all the way around.  I used low-temp glue to keep in place.

Next, I used Gorilla glue to attach my mirror to the back of the wreath.

Quick Tip:  Place several heavy books on top while the glue dries so it seals to the jute cord. Let dry at least 3 hours.

Next, add your driftwood!

Since the glue would not be touching the foam I used the high-temp setting for this part.  I didn’t want the driftwood going anywhere once I was done. I started by adding one layer of driftwood around the wreath, side by side.  Then I started filling in spots with extra pieces which ended up being about two full layers.

To hang the mirror, attach a metal picture hanger to the back of the mirror with the Gorilla Glue Epoxy.  I let it dry overnight before I hung the mirror up.  I didn’t want to take any chances that it would fall on the floor.

So I have to say I LOVE this mirror and making it was only a fraction of what it would cost pre-made!!  It’s so simple but so pretty!
