Hang mirror

    Been hanging around for a few months, first time "asker." I've been framing for a little less than a decade but now am on my own.

    Unframed round mirrors are very trendy right now. Ways I know to mount a mirror to a wall- frame it, glue it to the wall, use secure tabs that are screwed to the wall that hold the mirror in place.
    Left unframed, how would you hang it on the wall? Adhere a wood backing and wire hang it? From big box stores, I've seen hangers glued to the back of the mirrors.

    Anyone have experience with this? Thanks

    I would glue a panel of 9mm mdf with mirror mastic and then screw fixings into that.if the panel on the back is 30mm smaller all round then it will float off the wall.
