Finally got my winter craft area cleaned up so I can start on some garden junk. I found 4 small vent caps (I think that is what they are)for a dime each at a yard sale and I'm covering them with broken mirror;the mirror tile was a dollar a box of four also at a yard sale. I will attach them to a stake and will put them in the flower bed.

I was just saying how much I love mirrors in the garden! This is a nice and economical project that delivers plenty of 'bling'! Just beautiful!

TFS!

The reflection of colors in your garden should be beautiful, all shimmery and shiney. Great idea!

You have the patience of a saint to sit and glue those little pieces of mirror on. They will look awesome in the garden I'll bet!

A great idea would be to cut up old CD's and use the back of them. I love this idea! I might have to create this one! :)

Hi haven't been here in a while, I have been thinking how to add mirrors to my garden too. I like your idea and cannot wait to see the finished mirror art.

Indigo...

Did you finish your garden mirror stake project? Did you grout the mirrors? I would love to see pics of your finished garden stakes.

Max, sorry this isn't the best picture. They are still out there in the cold and holding up pretty good. I did not use grout. Underneath I glued a wine cork that I'd drilled a hole into so it would set a small plastic rod. The whole project was cheap and only took a few hours(to let the adhesive dry) and I think they are a pretty addition to the flower bed. Carol

I really like them! Are the edges of the mirror pieces sharp? What a great idea. Thanks for sharing.

Your garden stakes are great. I love the way they look in your garden. I will have to try that one myself.
