Earlier today I was on StumbleUpon and came across some pretty neat ideas and one was using old, worn down mirrors and up-cycling them to new, creative pieces. The picture I seen they used a mirror and glued it in a tennis racket.

I think this would be fun and creative, but I am not sure how to go about cutting the mirror or what type of glue would work best. Any advice would be great.

To cut the glass you would need a glass cutter. Least expensive one would work fine.

For adhesive, to glue mirror to wood I would suggest Lexell silicone. It has a strong smell, but will adhere to surfaces pretty quick, and will give you the extra cushion you may need for filler.

Good luck and post your results. Smiley
