Sunburst mirrors have become quite popular over the last few years. They give a room a nice modern touch and usually come in gold, which I’ve recently started incorporating a lot of in my decor. Sunburst mirrors usually range between $75 to $300 depending on the store and style. Today I’m going to share how to create your own DIY sunburst mirror for under $20. Follow along as I show you how!
- 7 inch Round Mirror
- 3/8 x 12 inch Wooden Dowel Rods
- Sawtooth Picture Hanger
- Hot Glue Gun
- 6.5 inch Wood Circle
- Spray Paint
The first thing you will need is to decide how many dowels you would like to use for your DIY sunburst mirror. I used about two packages of dowel rods so that I could have them spaced close together. I cut the dowels into two sizes; 6 inches and 3 inches.
To hang your DIY sunburst mirror, hammer a sawtooth hanger to the back of the wood circle. Since the wood circle I used was thinner than my nails, I made sure to have them go through a dowel on each side.
After the final coat has dried, you are ready to glue your mirror in place. Again use a generous amount of hot glue to ensure the mirror stays in place. Then place a heavy book onto of the mirror until the glue is dry.
