The greatest aspect of this craft project is how inexpensive the materials are! I found the contact paper on Amazon for a great price and the craft plywood and mirrors can be acquired at a Joann Fabrics or Michael’s Craft store.

First measure and mark your board into thirds. My 12×24 board gave me 3- 8″x 12″ mirrors. DIY Faux Marble MirrorsDIY Faux Marble Mirrors

Using your box cutter knife, score the wood until you can evenly break it apart. (You could also run it through a table saw.)DIY Faux Marble MirrorsSmooth out your edges with light sandpaper.DIY Faux Marble MirrorsNext decided upon the layout of your mirrors. DIY Faux Marble MirrorsTrace your mirrors onto the board.

Then trace a slightly small version of your mirrors/shapes inside of the shapes. This is so you can glue the mirrors on the back of the wood without having them fall through.DIY Faux Marble Mirrors

Score your tracings with the box cutter. Using a straight edge is very helpful. Don’t worry if you mess up your line though, you’ll be covering the board with contact paper!

I used my Dremel with wood/multi purpose saw blade to cut out my shapes. It was much quicker than going over the lines with my box cutter. You can turn your board over halfway during cutting to cut through the other side. Simply punch out the shape once it’s cut close enough to the corners then clean up the edges with your exacto knife and sandpaper.

Use your exacto knife to cut the contact paper within the shapes like show below. DIY Faux Marble MirrorsPeel of the backing of the contact paper and stick the board on top.

It dries fast and didn’t create residue on the other side.
