DIY Sunburst Mirror

This is one of the most exciting projects I’ve done!!

I’ve had my eye on this particular mirror at Hobby Lobby for a long time now. It’s a gold sunburst mirror and it was $50. Now to most, $50 is a steal for a great mirror. However, I have a hard time parting with money when I can make a knock-off for significantly cheaper.
When I saw this THIS, I knew the mirror I’ve always wanted was doable.

 

Here’s how it went down…

I bought a pack of wooden shims at the hardware store.
Then, I found a shimmery gold colored spray paint that matched the Hobby Lobby mirror.

Then, I laid them all out upside down in the shape that I wanted.

I used my handy dandy hot glue gun to glue on a wooden circle (on the back side) that the hubby cut for me.

I made sure there was plenty of glue on it so it would be good and sturdy

Once all of the shims were adhered to the wooden circle, I let it dry.

Then flipped it over- notice the wooden circle in the center.

And the last and final step was to hot glue on the store bought circular mirror

This project was about $6 total and took me about an hour to do (including waiting patiently for the glue to dry)!
