diy project: karen’s mirrored planter box

by Kate Pruitt

this mirrored planter reminds me how much i like dollar stores, where it seems like every aisle calls out with its potential for creative projects. karen at the art of doing stuff is well aware of this goldmine; her projects often utilize inexpensive materials to create something rad. this time she managed to score these mirrored squares and turn them into modern, clean vases.  i like to have a running list of quick projects to do when time is limited, or just to pick me up when i feel bored or glum. this project is a perfect solution for a rainy day, and if you fill it with a string of pearls or another draping plant, the reflection will give you two plants for one! HERE is the full set of instructions, including some more how-to images. thanks for sharing this clever project with us, karen! –kate
