There are so many ways to add your own DIY twist to everyday home items just by using common craft materials. In the past we have crafted paper leaves to create these unique mirrors. And we have also made our own starburst mirror using chipboard. This time around, Meagan has combined macrame cord and beads to make this beaded macrame mirror.
Though it looks somewhat complex, we promise it is simple! To make it even easier, we’ve created a video tutorial for you to follow along with below.
You bead to make this!
Our beaded macrame mirror would look so beautiful hanging in a bedroom or living room along with some other soft and neutral accents. For example, you could fill a vase on your mantel or dresser with some crepe paper bunny tails, crepe paper chestnut branches, felt wheat stalks, or our crepe paper and wool cotton stems.
When you’re ready to start crafting, check out our supplies list below. As always you can use a different color of macrame cord, paint the wooden beads to match, or use a bigger or smaller mirror with fewer beads and cords.
Skill level: Beginner
Knots used: Larks Head Knot and Half Hitch Knot. Need more guidance on these knots? Check out our macrame course for beginners.
Crafting tip: If you want more or less beads to fill in the hoop, just double the amount of cords to beads. For example, if you add 2 beads, you will need 4 cords.
