Materials Needed
1--Circle Mirror (22")
12--Rectangular Mirrors (4"X5")
Glue gun and sticks

To Hang:  If you purchase your mirror from Ikea it comes with brackets to hold the mirror on the wall.  If not make sure the mirror you purchase does have a wall hanging device!

1.  Arrange rectangle mirrors around circle so they are more than half way onto the mirror.  Make sure each edge of the rectangle mirror touch the edges of the surrounding rectangle mirrors.
2.  Once all of the mirror tiles are framed evenly, glue them down with a hot glue gun or mirror glue one by one.
3.  You have now completed  your mirror.  Follow directions that came with the circle mirror to hang.
