• Lots of old mirror, about 500g. You can also order pre-cut lengths of mirror from Upcycle
• Glass cutter
• Pot

Step 1

Hold the glass cutter firmly against the old mirror and cut into long lengths. Be sure not to make them more than 5cm wide.

Keep placing your strips on the pot, making sure that the base of the mirror strips touch and that you leave a gap at the top to compensate for the shape of the pot.
