I saw this round wall mirror hanging from a beaded "necklace," and loved it, but was not willing to pay $399. After a bit of trial-and-error, I figured out a way to make it.
I'm super happy with how it turned out. Here are links and instructions to how I did it.
I initially thought hot glue would be the best because it dries so fast and would stick the beads in place - but it wasn't quite strong enough. What ended up working was a combination of Gorilla Glue and hot glue. The Gorilla Glue doesn't dry as fast and the beads were rolling around, so I found that a dab of each kind of glue worked perfectly. The necklace part of the mirror is an illusion, and the mirror is handing by brackets attached at the middle. There is a nail in the wall above the mirror to hang it, but that's not what is supporting it.
I ordered a 50-pack of 40mm wooden beads from Etsy. This was the perfect size. I strung them on clear fishing line and then glued them to the mirror and painted them after it was hanging. If I was doing it over, I would have spray painted them first. But, this worked OK. It looks a little bit rustic, because the paint job isn't perfect. I also think it would looik really pretty with a high-gloss enamel spray paint - maybe even in a periwinkle or light pink.
If you try this project out, please let me know and send pictures. I'd love to see them!
