removal of decorative glued mirror


I need help on how to remove several round mirrors mounted on wall with glue, or whatever they came with when purchased. They have been on wall for about 5 yrs

If they are thin--they will(likely ) break----Knowing that try this--

Get some thin wood shims--tap them in slowly between the drywall and the mirror--They will pop right off

Some drywall patching might be needed---Wear gloves and eye protection--Have fun--Mike--
