I have been doing some home re-evalutions as of recent, taking inventory of our current home decor.  Some has been in the “go” pile and others have been in the “stay” pile.  The Sunburst Mirror has passed in to the stay pile, so I thought I’d share the simple steps I took to create it.

I’ve been keeping my eye on sunburst mirrors for a while now.  Our front entry has vaulted ceilings and I wanted something large to fill a bit of the empty space.  

I love sunburst mirror’s overall form.  They can be so elegant and yet slightly retro in style.  I’ve seen them cost up to $200 and with all the supplies I had to buy, mine came to a total of $19!!  

What supplies do you need to make a Wooden Skewer Sunburst Mirror?

The only other purchases to make were Bamboo Wooden Skewers and a can of spray paint.  I bought two packages of 100 skewers.

You can use much less, but I wanted a very full looking sunburst.

How do I make an inexpensive Gold Sunburst Wall Mirror?

  • 1.  Lay the mirror face down and divide the circle into four equal parts using a pencil.
  • 2.  Once you decide how big you want the sunburst to be, measure the wooden skewers and mark on all of them so as to keep a consistent length.

  2. Your sunburst mirror turned out awesome! I agree I liked the mirror on it’s own too but once the whole project was done the sunburst mirror had much more personality. Thanks so much for linking up to Frugal Crafty Home Blog Hop!
