How to make a DIY Driftwood Mirror

If you tuned into Home to Win and saw Mia Parres’s gorgeous master bedroom redesign, your eye probably drifted towards a certain driftwood mirror hanging over the wall table near the room’s entrance. The sunburst design is modern in shape but rustic in execution thanks to the added wood, making it a perfect addition to this lakeside retreat.

As it turns out, all you need are a few simple tools to get a driftwood mirror of your very own. Here’s how Mia made the stunning piece in a matter of minutes.


  • A round mirror
  • A large piece of cardboard
  • Pieces of driftwood, either from a craft store or the great outdoors
  • A hot glue gun

What you do:

  1. Lay the mirror on a flat surface
  2. Cut the cardboard into a large circle that fits inside the mirror, leaving roughly eight-to-10 centimetres (more if you have larger pieces of wood) between the edge of the cardboard and the edge of the mirror.
  3. Glue the pieces of driftwood one at a time in a circular fashion until you’ve completed the entire circumference of the mirror.
  4. Let it dry, remove the cardboard and voila! Your very own driftwood mirror.

Pro tips:

  • Use a stencil when cutting the cardboard to get a perfect circle.
  • Choose varying lengths and thicknesses of driftwood in order to get that rustic look.
