You will need:
- Thick cardboard
- A ruler
- Aluminum Foil
Step 1: Cut a piece of cardboard that’s 19″ by 6 1/2″.
Step 2: Cover one side of the cardboard with aluminum foil. Make sure that the shiny side of the foil is NOT against the cardboard. It’s OK if some of the cardboard is showing at the edges. Before you tape it down with regular tape, smooth out the foil as best as you can.
Step 3: Cover the edges in Duck-tape! Do the long sides first. And don’t put the whole strip of Duck-tape on the front of the mirror; only put on half of it. Then do the short sides.
Tip: This is how I did it! Turn the side of the cardboard to face you. Then press the tape against the side, making sure that you’ve got about half of the Duck-tape on each side of the mirror.
Step 4: Flip the cardboard over so the the side without the aluminum foil is facing up. Fold pieces of regular tape onto itself so that you have double-stick tape. Put the pieces of double-stick tape on the cardboard in the places that I have helpfully marked as “here” on the picture.
Step 5: Hang the finished mirror on your doll’s wall.
Step 6: Tell your doll that she can see her reflection in the mirror.
Variation (for a hand-held mirror): Cut a piece of cardboard that is 3″ by 2 1/2″. Do steps 2 and 3. Cut a popsicle stick in half and tape to the back of the mirror. Cover the popsicle stick in Duck-tape or leave plain.
