Mirrors have always appealed as a functional item yet able to fit into a room decoratively. A big trend at the moment is the hanging mirror, but as popularity grows so does the price.
[ We have a full trend post coming up next month showing some of the best mirrors around ]
Until then we have found some great tutorials to create your very own hanging mirror. To get a modern look pick leather as the hanging element – head to ebay to pick up strips in varying colours or why not try a leather belt.
Very simply you can use an existing round mirror or buy a standard wooden framed mirror. [ We found a couple at argos.co.uk for £50 and next.co.uk for £40 ]
With some additions of a few tools and metal tacks you can create an individual piece for any room.
