Make Your Own Starburst Mirrors

Make Your Own Starburst Mirrors

We recently featured a roundup of round mirrors, but most cost a pretty penny. Rather than dropping $200 on a mass produced mirror, here are some DIY projects for making your own starburst mirrors with objects commonly found around the house.

Plastic spoons, spools of thread and clothespins never looked so glamorous. If bright colors don't match your decor, go neutral with some metallic spray paint.

FROM LEFT TO RIGHT:

• This Colorful DIY Mirror from Country Living uses an 18 inch mirror and about 105 colored plastic plastic spoons.

• This design uses a variety of colors for the spools of thread, but we think a monochromatic range of colors would be just as lovely. Instructions are available at ilovetocreate.com.

• Clothespins are spray painted before adhering them to the mirror and wooden base for the Clothespin Circle Mirror found on Country Living.
