Hark! Hark to the wind! 'Tis the night, they say,
When all souls come back from the far away-
The dead, forgotten this many a day!

Did you see this on Martha Stewart?  It is genius!
Mirror, Mirror How-To
1. Remove the original mirror from the frame. Flip the frame over, and place it on a piece of poster board or corrugated cardboard. Trace the opening of the frame onto the board, adding 1/4 inch to the top edge; cut out with scissors.

2. Coat the smooth side of the board with super spray adhesive, and adhere a 2-mm-thick sheet of mirrored film to it. Trim any excess film around the edges of the board. Apply a thin strip of hot glue to the inner lip at the top of the frame; secure one edge of the mirrored board to the lip. Repeat process on bottom lip. This will create a slight concave curve in the mirror, since the board will be larger than your frame.

3. The curve in the mirror will leave small gaps between the mirror and the sides of the frame. Cut pieces of cardboard in the shape of these gaps and cover them with mirrored film. Using hot glue, attach the pieces to the mirror and frame, plugging the gaps.

4. Hang mirror as usual.

I don't remember seeing this idea last year and I've been waiting for a new genius idea from her website.  I'm sure this is the one I've been waiting for!
