    Save and Print the image template. Stick it down temporarily on center of your wood board using duct tape or little paper glue. (It was tough for me to eyeball for symmetry. So, just to make it easy for you I made this template.)

    Place the wooden board on a small step stool (or something similar, to let you elevate the craft piece). Paint all the dowels on one side. ( I used Espresso color from Craft Smart acrylic paints.)

    After the spray paint is completely dry, hot glue all around on the inner edge of dowels (the area indicated in the above picture) and stick the 9" candle mirror on it. (You got to be little quick while doing this step because you do not want the glue to dry even before you stick the mirror on.)

    Add a saw tooth hanger to the backside of wooden board using hammer very gently (keep the mirror against carpet so that it doesn't break). And add a nail or two on wall where you want to hang your master piece.
