I wanted to make a sunburst mirror but I wanted to make it cheap and do something with scrapbook paper (because I love it and I have a lot of paper). This project cost me about $4.
Here’s what you need:
– a round mirror. In my case I used a shinny platter I found at a thrift store.
-Scrapbook paper in whatever colors you want, the amount will depend on how big your mirror is. i used 8 pieces.
-blue painters tape
-pop can tab (to hang it with.
Now make enough of those pieces to fit around your mirror.
Now that you have it like you like it, use your blue tape to secure the pieces together.
Then get out your hot glue and go crazy! I picked up my paper and applied glue directly to the mirror and then laid them down on to the hot glue. After that I went back and added glue to weaker spots.
I glued my papers to the front of the mirror but you could do it on the back-just play around (before you glue) and see what you like.
Remove your blue tape and flip it over- now you need to hang it!
Now it’s finished and ready to hang!
If you wanted to make a more traditional sunburst mirror look- buy metallic or sparkly scrapbook paper all in the same color- i may have to make one of those too! 🙂
