The witch's mirror can be used in several different ways.
1. One of the most common is to use it for scrying, or seeing into the future. This is done pretty much like using a crystal ball.
2. Communicate psychicly with someone who has passed on, or a living person that you want to contact.
3. Use the mirror as a meditation aid, focusing on the mirror helps to clear the mind and make meditation easier.
4. Help contact Spirit Guides
5. Help you focus on your own inner Spirit.
The simpliest mirrors are ones that are made by taking a piece of glass, spray painting it black and placing this inside a wooden box. Below are the instructions for making one.
piece of glass
The traditional mirror was made from a round piece of glass (if you are lucky you might find an old clock and use the glass cover from the dial). However, the size and shape of this is a matter of choice.
The size and shape of your wooden box will be determined by the piece of glass you choose. Ideally, you should have one that allows you to set your piece of glass inside and have at least a one inch depth.

WHAT TO DO
To make the basic mirror, you simply paint one side of the glass and the inside of the box with the black spray paint and mount the glass inside the wooden box.
those are the BASIC instructions and things needed. However, if you
are like me, you don't want to stop at just that. This can be such
a fun and beautiful project with some imagination and a few craft supplies.
This mirror should actually be a reflection of you in some way. I
chose to make mine out of a picture frame box that had a hinged lid that
I found, Here is where I gave myself creative license. The
frame was 8"X10" and rectangular (even though round was the traditional
shape for the glass I found the possiblities of use for the frame box too
much to resist.) I painted the glass with the black spray paint,
lined the inside of the box with black velvet, and decorated the outside
framework with symbols that were significant to me with silver art paint.
Remember I said I found the possibities of use were too tempting?
Well when I want to communicate with someone I have a picture of (or some
other tag-lock) I put it inside the box, close the lid and concentrate
on contacting that person. Of course this is done strictly with candle
light. Anytime you use your mirror you
should be within your circle of protection anyway because this can act
as a doorway between the worlds.
