Introduction: Magic Mirror - Quick and Dirty


Instructable by LK
A magic mirror is always a nice Halloween decoration. I will show you how to make a quick-and-dirty magic mirror within 10-20 minutes

Step 1: What You Need

You need:
- a Picture Frame
- black cardboard
- a mobile phone

Step 2: Preparing the Cardboard

Take your cardboard, make it fit the picture frame and cut a hole for your mobile's screen.

Step 3: Putting Everything Together

Put the cardboard on the glass of the picture frame, put your mobile on the cardboard and close the case of the picture frame.

Step 4: Make It Scary

Open the case and download a scary image. Display it and close the case again. You might recognize the visible difference between the cardboard and the screen. This is the reason why our magic mirror is a quick-and-dirty mirror and just works in dark rooms.

Step 5: Setting Everything in Scene

Place the mirror in a dark room and ensure that no light source is directly shining at it.
