Danielle Oakey at Danielle Oakey Interiors. I love that she framed her round mirror with an embroidery hoop. I had a bought a flat, candle holder mirror from Hobby Lobby but had been looking for the "frame". This option was perfect because I had just bought one at a garage sale!
2. This blinging beauty is from Meredith Heard at Welcome to Heardmont. I love how she used barbecue skewers (which are cheap and that's great!) and the metallic spray paint! I love some bling bling!
3. The last inspiration photo came from Isabella & Max Rooms. The twigs are similar to the skewers that Meredith used but seems to be a bit more random with the different lengths of the twigs used around the mirror.
So on to my Sunburst Mirror.
1- 10" embroidery hoop
1- 10" round mirror
2 sizes of skewers (10" and 12")
Template from Stephanie at Under the Table and Dreaming (another great DIY Sunburst Mirror)
1- 10" wooden disc
hot glue (lots and lots of hot glue)
I started by placing my template down on my round disc and marking little lines around the circle. Then I placed and hot glued a skewer on each line a random heights. I then filled in the sections randomly (I didn't want to have to think too much and I liked the random pattern).
|Holy Hot Glue!|
The embroidery hoop had a few ugly spots that stood out much more after I spraypainted it. I decided to outline the hoop in a string of costume jewelry pearls that I also spraypainted.
I love my mirror! Thanks Meredith, Danielle, Stephanie and Janell for all of the inspiration!
