Hey guys! Today I’m sharing an easy project, a burlap framed mirror using a yard sale frame and a thrift store mirror.
I love this idea and I knew by using burlap, it would be the perfect project for our Get Your DIY on: Burlap Projects.
Here’s what I started with:
The finished product:
Here’s how I got here:
I painted my frames in DIY chalk paint:
I found an old piece of quarter-inch plywood in the garage and cut it to fit my frame. Then I covered it in this pretty printed burlap I had left from an old project:
I reinserted it into my frame, using the old prong thingys (technical term) that were already there.
I always try to open them with my fingernails until I have like two left and can’t possibly take the pain of opening another, then I cave and go dig for a flathead screwdriver…
The last step is to attach the mirror to the burlap covered plywood using hot glue. Add hangers to the back if needed and that’s it!
I shared a tutorial on how to make a fabric framed mirror this summer which is very similar, but this is even easier!
I love the creamy white against the burlap.
I found the frame at a yard sale this summer for $3 and the mirror was a thrift store find for about the same price. I already had the fabric, so this beautiful new mirror only cost me around $6!
I love when I can take something old and give it a whole new life!
Here’s what my beautiful and creative co-hosts came up with for our burlap theme:

I haven’t done a whole lot with burlap, but I know it’s a staple in most crafters’ supply closets. Dust off those old burlap projects or create a new one and bring them to the party! Our new Get Your DIY on theme starts Sunday at 7:00pm EST and you are so invited!! Even if you don’t blog, burlap is the perfect fall accent…come get inspired!
I think my new mirror fits in perfectly with a little fall, no?
I love to party with these awesome ladies:
