12 DIYs of Christmas ~ Day 4 ~ DIY Mirrored Cube Container

Hey lovelies!  We're already at Day 4; 1/3 of the way done with 12 DIYs of Christmas!  Today's is a versatile mirrored cube container that I made from candle trivets from the dollar store.  That's right, it cost only $5 to make!  {Steps after the jump}

You'll need: 5 mirrored trivets, e-6000 glue.  (That's all!)

Line up your pieces one at a time, adding glue to one side of the trivet and attaching it to another.  Keep this going for four sides.

Let dry for about an hour, then line the entire perimeter with glue.  Place the last trivet, mirrored side down on top.  Now, you could remove the labels and felt pieces from the four trivets before you glue them together, however I was way too excited to make this and overlooked that step :)

Depending on what you're using this for, fill with the filler of your choice!  I decided to put my makeup brushes in it, so I filled it with glass gems.  This works great as a pencil cup, a succulent planter, the possibilities are endless!

Is this something you'd make?  What would you use yours for?
