How to make the reflective pond?

Things you may need:

  • Artificial flower and vines
  • Shatterproof mirror
  • Green felt

Step 1:

Cut the green felt to shape (based on your mirror size) and leave a rectangle hole in the middle of them for adding the mirror "pond" ;

Step 2:

Glue the green felt together and the mirror pond to the felt to keep it in place (using gorilla glue);

Step 3:

Glue artificial flowers and vines around the mirror edge and add in stone garden ornaments

Exclusive Tips:

1. Green felt covering

Hang and tuck the backdrop underneath a canvas floor layer which then has a layer of green felt on top.

2. Safety concern

The mirror is shatterproof plastic for safety reasons; if children step onto the mirror it is safe.

3. Garden toadstool

Place a large garden toadstool for children to sit on in front of the mirror in the center.

4. Backdrop blending

Add a bundle of vines and flowers along the bottom edge of the backdrop to help blend it all together.
