Today, I'm sharing another DIY project I did for the Life of a Not So Ordinary Housewife, a DIY Sunburst Mirror. We are in the process of redoing our guest bathroom so I wanted to make this for that room. But, I have it sitting in my kitchen right now and not sure I want to give it up. I like it in there. Anyway, I'll get to the task at hand. Read on .....
These are the supplies you need.
small shims- I used 4 bags.
acrylic paint in your choice of colors
paint brush- I use foam ones
7 in. mirror
cardboard. I used a recycled pizza round
Decide on your paint colors and paint your shims. I used two colors. I let some of the wood show through.
While the shims are drying take your mirror and glue it in the middle of your round pizza cardboard.
Start by laying all your shims in place. Getting the arrangement that you want. You will be placing the shims up against the mirror. I know this is a bad picture but it's the only one I have that shows how I placed the bottom layer. So please bear with my lack of photographic skills.
Next step is add a shim in between each of the bottom layer. Once you have them where you want them glue them into place.
It should look like this after you have glued them into place.
Cut your glass tiles into strips. I used 3 rows of glass tiles for my mirror. Make sure you cut all the mesh away from the tile. You don't want any mesh showing since we aren't using grout.
Lay them into place at the edge of the mirror. Once they are in the position you want them to be glue them down.
You are now done!!! A quick, easy piece of DIY art. I sat mine on a shelf so didn't add a hanger, but if and when I do I'll use a Command hook (nope, no affiliation with them)
Have you done a Starburst Mirror? If so, what have you used to make it with?
