Paint Stick Sunburst Mirror that the extremely talented Kate of Centsational Girl did. You should check out her mirror. It looks gorgeous.
So here is the "how to" for the mirror in case you want to make your own DIY mirror.What you will need:
- 15 inch round wooden circle
- 14 inch mirror
- 14 inch embroidery hoop
- 17 -2x3 wooden tags (these are small little wood pieces, unpainted, for .49 cents at Michaels)
- 17- 2x3 inch mirrors
- 17- 2.5x3.5 inch wood pieces ( I bought a long piece of wood from Home Depot and cut them to my needed length)
- gorilla glue
- craft paint
To get the 2.5x3.5 inch pieces of wood, I needed to buy a 1/4"x2.5"x4' and it was $3.49. I needed two of those. From that I measured and cut the length to 3.5 inches.
We cut a circle out of a sheet of plywood measuring 15 inches in diameter. You could do it 14 inches like the mirror, but I wanted to have some extra support (a lip) to attach the mirrors to.
I then attached the mirror to the wooden circle using gorilla glue.
Last on the list was to attach the mirror pieces to the outside edge of the hoop. No matter how we tried, we couldn't get the circumference to divide perfectly. In this case we used 17 pieces and kept a small space between the mirrors so that it stayed symmetrical.
Hope you like it!
