DIY Sunburst Mirror
When I first came up with this idea I thought I was genius, but then I showed Em and she was like “that’s already all over pinterest!”
Boo. I hate not being as original as I think I am, but I still love this project and can’t believe it cost under $2 and only took about an hour. I’m really loving it above our bed.
To Make You Will Need:
10″ cardboard circle (just cut from shipping box, free!)
7″ mirror (got mine HERE, and used 40% off coupon so about $1.25 per mirror)
About 40 paint stir sticks (just ask for them at Home Depot, I offered to pay, but they were happy to give for free…yippee)
Glue mirror onto cardboard circle
Then start glueing the sticks onto the cardboard, aline with mirror as much as possible
If the last one is a tight squeeze, just sand down to fit
First layer all done looks like this:
Then just start the next layer, trying to center between 2 sticks at a time…
And that’s it! All done, and looking beautiful!
If you wanted to it would look great painted, but I was loving the natural wood look.
Worthy of an hour don’t you think?!
