I was able to get quite a bit of mirror from a local glass shop and would love some ideas of things I can make with the mirror.  I am just completing a gazing ball that I made with a bowling ball and small pieces of mirror.  Will post photo when it's finished. Huh

Hmmm, I'd say you could do more mosaics...you could basically mosaic anything.  A not so crafty idea, but you can place candles on them or place the mirror behind the burning candle.  If you cut the mirrors, you could have unique shaped mirrors for decoratiion.

I don't know how to cut mirrors, just how to break them!  I have some that I am going to try gluing onto an old picture frame, alternating the mirror pieces with marble stones, metal buttons, odd earrings and stuff.  Also I have a couple of round mirrors out of hand mirrors and old compacts that I am thinking of using for miniature winter scenes, as in frozen ponds, with cotton batting or sparkly fake snow all around it and tiny pine cone 'trees' painted green with touchs of white glitter for snow.  Just have to figure out what to use for skaters! I think you could also wiire them onto wind chimes, not where they would directly hit anything, but just where they woud reflect the other pieces of the chimes.  Hope this helps; that's all I have for now!  TL

Whose bright idea was this anyway?  I said burn all your bridges, not blow them up!  Jeez!

Here are two pics of stuff I have made with broken mirror using just mdf and glue for the 'mirror' amd the torso was also just glue and neither have any filling between the glass but its not meant for kids so if you don't touch you don't get cut fingers.
