I've had some 12"x12" mirror tiles hanging around for awhile and was just wondering about how I might stick them on the wall in my bedroom? Is there something special I need to get, or is there something else I can use?

Any help is greatly appreciated  Smiley

Mirrors are generally stuck on with "mirror mastic". You can get tubes of it in the caulk section. I wouldn't just use any old adhesive - the silver on the back of the mirror might react with it.

But using the mirror mastic is if you want them there for good. Not sure if you're looking for something temporary or permanent. Smiley

I'm looking for temporary since I'm in an apartment right now and know I won't be here next year.

Oh, well then I was no help at all!  Cheesy

Don't they make some removable adhesive putty stuff? Like 3M? But that might stick TOO well, and it still might be hard to get the tiles off without breaking. hmmm...Maybe mount the tiles onto something and then hang that? Or maybe do something fun with mirror rosettes if little nail holes are okay.

You can use those little wire things that are used to hang plates on the wall, just make sure you get a size that will work. I also have some mirror tiles & was trying to find ways to hang them on the wall, & plate hangers worked.
