JLCopper DIY

Hi, my name is Jeanette Lunde and I´m so happy to be guest blogging here at “ohhhmhhh”. I´m a graphic designer, working with styling, photography and design + writing my blog www.byfryd.com. Steffi wanted me to show you one of my latest DIY´s that metallic includes copper tape.

I bought the copper tape from a wholesale store for electricians and the tape is not paper or plastic, but metal.

So here we go.


– copper tape

– mirror without a frame

– scissors

Start with the mirror, maybe you have an old one where yo can remove the frame or do as me; buy one from the glazier.

The one I´m showing here is 120 x 180 cm, in other words huge. I also asked the glazier to cut round corners.

Turn your mirror downside up and measure with a liner and pencil how far in the tape shall be. That way you will have a straight frame on the frontside.

Now you can start to add the copper tape. It´s quit stiff so take small pieces at a time, ex. 30 cm.

If you chose round corners, leave them until the end.

Make sure the tape overlaps the tape already added on and cut round corners, like the mirror.

Voila; you have a brand new mirror with lovely copper frame!

Wish you the best of luck with your DIY!

smiles + love

    That is awesome, Jeanette. Such a mirror would perfectly fit into my copper-confetti-bathroom (http://kleine-schwester.blogspot.de/2013/06/copper-confetti-scenery.html#more)
    Thanks for sharing this great idea. I just added your blog to my favorites 😉
