Just dado the back side of the pieces and use Craig scews and glue to hold the it together on the back side.
It would just like the back side of any picture frame.
You can use window points to hold the mirror in place.

the mirror is about 5x7 by my estimate and a bit heavy.
will the window points be strong enough to hold it?

All the weights going to be facing down.
If it makes you feel better any one of these would also work.

I would not glue it to anything it may effect the sliver on the back side and show through.

Take dobs of mirror mastic behind the mirror. Just little blobs all over to hold it, as Joe said, do not glue it, it will destroy the silver backing
