About 20 toilet paper tubes
7 inch diameter mirror
glue dots (or glue gun)
extra piece of paper
Mark each toilet paper tube into four one-inch segments. The tube is slightly longer than four inches, so just cut a little over the inch marks for each tube.
Cut the toilet paper tubes into the one inch pieces, and then bend the corners of each one to make the diamond shape. (Most of mine already had a crease forming where I cut it, so I just used the natural bending and creased it all the way)
Use the extra piece of paper to make a circle of the same diameter as the mirror (trace the mirror on the paper and cut it out)
Make your design around the extra paper circle, then, around your actual mirror, move the tube pieces one by one over and use the glue dots(or glue gun) to glue them together where they naturally fit. For me it was about 2/3 the way up the tube's rounded side.
I did three rows of tubes, and then a fourth row of adding a tube at every other spot, to make the points more pronounced.
Next, spray paint! I used Krylon's metallic satin oil brushed bronze color.
After it is dry, use glue dots to adhere the mirror to the wall, then use a small nail or two to put the tube art around it. Ta-dah! You just participated in the most cliché Pinterest project ever!
You can also do this around a clock, without anything inside, or fill in the middle with toilet paper tubes! Have fun with it! Also, I've seen these spray painted all different colors, so you don't have to stick to black like I did!
