DIY Wicker Basket Mirror

Today for $30 Thursday, I thought it would be fun to share another easy and cheap project! Those are my favorite types of projects! 😀

In case you’re new here, $30 Thursday takes place on the first Thursday of the month and Jen from Migonis Home and April from House by Hoff join me in giving you easy ideas that can be made for $30 or less!

And this month, I’m sharing one simple, but pretty project! Here’s my DIY Wicker Basket Mirror:

How pretty is that? And seriously, it’s so easy to make. If you have a hot glue gun, you’re set! 😀

I started with a basic round wicker basket. I picked mine up at our local home/ craft store, but you can find them anywhere, including thirft stores! Next, I bought a mirror at the same craft store. I made sure it fit inside on the bottom of the basket…

Then, I flipped over the mirror and added bunches of hot glue…

Once I had enough hot glue, I centered the mirror in the basket and pressed them together…

Once the hot glue was cool, I simply hung the basket from a nail. Done and done!

I’m absolutely thrilled with how it looks…

  1. Thanks for sharing your new DIY $30 project. It turned out great! What a neat idea. But I truly love the elongated wicker basket next to it as well. Where did you pick that one up?

    I have been looking for one like that, for my front door.

    Blessings!

    1. Thank you so much! I found the long basket at our local craft store. They have a whole, huge section! 🙂
