Vintage Sunset Sunburst Mirror

Hi I'm Kim, I am a craft blogger from Made in a Day! I am an artist turned, hair stylist turned, mom and now craft blogger! I'm kind of a jack of all trades when it comes to creativity! I like re-purposing old seemingly useless items into something awesome and new!

Today I'm going to show you how to make to make a Vintage Look Sunset Sunburst Mirror. I love the look of vintage sunsets, like the ones you would see on 70's artwork. So, I decided to combine the two styles and this is what I came up with! 

Materials needed: Cool crate like wall hanging thing (I keep seeing these in thrift stores and have to buy them), about 6 packages square dowels, acrylic paint, sponge applicators, hot glue & gun, a hacksaw, circle shaped mirror and twine.

Lay your square dowels in a pattern of a sunburst, slanted like mine if you are going for a vintage look. (I used the thick dowels, but since they only come in random size packages. I needed 6 packs to get enough thick ones). Take a hack saw and cut half of them in smaller pieces so they do not overlap under the mirror. Hack saws are super easy to use, just secure your dowels in a vice and hack away!

Next hot glue twine around your mirror. Mine ended up being five times around. Tape off your mirror and paint your twine the desired color.

Figure out your color scheme for your dowels and paint them accordingly.

 Lay your pattern back out and hot glue to the wooden base. Hot glue your mirror over the top!

That's it and now I have a cool one of a kind mirror! I love it!!
Hope you do too!
