Creating a frame for a mirror using eating utensils is both wacky and ingenious in the most awesome kind of way. You can certainly use a complete set of matching utensils if you want, but what if you made this into an estate-sale scavenger hunt to find mix-and-match cutlery? That would be so cool.

To be honest, this is just the tip of the ice burg with what you can do with a mirror. Jump on these ideas or if you come up with something different, let us know. We would love to see pictures of your masterpiece.
