Decorating a new space is one of our favorite activities here at DIY Projects. It’s a chance to express who you are as well as really get into the DIY spirit. There’s so much inspiration to pull from in the design world and even more ways to make it yourself. One of our go-to decorations for a new space is a mirror. Mirrors are a quick and easy way to add depth to any space.

We love the look of tiled mirrors and found a way to make one using dollar store items. This tutorial on how to make a tiled mirror is super simple and you can keep it under $15. (Even cheaper if you already have duck tape and glue!)

  • foam board
  • craft glue

Supplies:
9 framed mirrors, duck tape, foam board, craft glue (not shown)

Step 1:

You are going to start by attaching the mirrors together using your duck tape. Flip the mirrors over so the mirrored surface is facing down. Start taping! This doesn’t have to look pretty, it just need to hold the mirrors together.
Do this in rows of three, making sure the mirrors are perfectly aligned.

Start by lining up the first three mirrors, facing down.

Continue to tape until all the seams are secured.

Step 3:

To fully reinforce the mirrors, glue the foam core onto the back.
We designed our mirror to lean up agains the wall. If you want your mirror to hang, we fully recommend putting a piece of plywood on the back instead of the foam core, then using hanging wire and a staple gun from there.

Secure the mirrors by gluing and taping down the board on the back.
