sunburst mirrorA Sunburst mirror is a beautiful piece of art that can add a little vintage flair to your home décor. You can make your own sunburst mirror of any size and design according to your imagination. Materials required are:
1 round shaped mirror of any size.
5-6 plastic sheets. You can use plastic placemats or binder cover.
1 small can of metallic spray paint of any colour.
A tube of all-purpose permanent adhesive
Decide the number of petals you need for your sunburst mirror and then cut the plastic sheets to strips. For example, if you need 8 petals then cut 8 long plastic strips. Also cut 8 strips with short length. Short petals can be placed in the centre of the long petals.
Next step is to make petals with these plastic strips. Apply a dot of glue at one end of the strip and pinch the other end on it. Hold it for a while until it joins well. Create smaller petals the same way. Join the large and small petals together by applying a dot of glue on the inner base of the larger petal and press the smaller petal on it.
Once all the petals are ready bring them close to your mirror and arrange it according to your imagination. Now glue the edges of each petal together so that it forms a ring of petals.
Before attaching it to the mirror, spray paint the petal ring. Keep it aside to dry. Attach the painted petal ring to the front edges of your mirror by using glue. Fix a hook on the back side of the mirror. Now your beautiful sunburst mirror is ready. You can hang it anywhere in your house. But when it is hung in your bathroom close to modern shower curtains, it radiates a special charm to your bathroom.
