Only .99 cents each, I picked up a couple.
Then I spotted this cheap, plastic soccer theme mirror and got an idea!
The round mirror in this baby was *exactly* the same size as the bottom of my cake pan! Ding ding ding!!
SO................(you probably see where I'm going with this)
I turned it over, undid the four small screws and sports theme printed cardboard (cause it IS a soccer mirror after all) that held the mirror in AND...........
Covered the cardboard with some wrapping paper and spray glue. I wasn't too concerned about being neat here, because the mirror will be covering everything up.THEN.......
Added a few spots of hot glue to the back lip of the cake pan,
turned it over AND...........
This is what it looks like so far, UNTIL........
another couple of dabs of glue, and Voila! A beautiful little mirror.
It has the look of a starburst mirror, and you could use this for all sorts of things. I would probably use it on my vanity to hold bracelets or perfume bottles, but you could also hang it just by attaching a piece of ribbon to the back, like so.......
And the grand total? .99 cents for the cake pan, $2.99 for the soccer mirror (can you believe that thing cost more than the beautiful, fluted, silver cake pan....oh, I know why....NO BOTTOM!)
I would love the hear what you've re-purposed lately.
