Macrame Mirror (and Merriment)

Psssst… this post *might* contain affiliate links: see my disclosure here.

Don’t freak out, guys. Sloooooowly back away from the calendar. No quick movements. Stay cool. Christmas is in TEN DAYS. Swear. I still have to ship and bake and clean, not to mention the 12 dozen or so holiday crafts I was hoping to get to! Since my days have been spent hyperactively purging all the junk in anticipation of the eleventy-zillion gifts that come into this house on Christmas and doing other important things like organizing under our bathroom sink (#comingsoon) and making 21 wooden boxes for Eleanor’s class, I wanted to hop in today to share my boho cool macrame mirror.

I photographed it downstairs, but it currently lives in Martha’s bathroom and it’s SO fun. Because it used plywood and rope and a thrifted mirror, this whole project also set me back less than $10! (What?!)

Thanks to Pinterest, I gathered an arsenal of decorative knots and then I slowly adhered them around my mirror.

Don’t you LOVE the texture of the knots with the neutral white of the rope?!
