From me to you: Sunburst Mirror Tutorial

I decided to tackle making my own sunburst mirror. I have been drooling over them for a while now, but knew I couldn't fork up the $150 some retail stores charg for them. I have had some circle mirrors lying around since our wedding last May and decided to put one to use! Here are the supplies I used for this project:

- Charger Plate from Michael's - $1
-Circle Mirror - Free
- 4 packs of wooden dowels from Hobby Lobby - $8
-Gold Beads - Free
-Glue Gun - Free

Total Cost = $9 and about an hour of my time!

Step 1: First I drew a grid on the back of the charger and tested out how I wanted to place the dowels.

Step 2: Spray paint the dowels with metallic gold paint

Step 3: Attach wooden dowels to back of charger.
Secure mirror to front of charger. Both done with a glue gun (don't skimp on the glue!)

Step 4: Apply beads to edge of mirror


(I recommend using a plate hanger to hang. I drilled holes in the back of the charger and attached hanging wire, but it doesn't sit flush against the wall. Plate hangers are super cheap, just make sure you get the right size.)
