Attach picture-hanging hardware to the back of the wooden boxes. Make sure they are strong enough to hold the weight of the box and the mirror. Make sure the screws do not stick out on the inside of the box where the mirror will be glued down — try to get the screws into the sides of the box.
Spread adhesive glue onto the back of the mirror. Lay the mirror in the box. Place a towel on top of the mirror and something heavy to help keep the mirror in place while the glue dries. Let it dry 24 hours.
Cut rope pieces to fit around inside edge of box, covering the edge of the mirror. Glue into place using a hot-glue gun.
