A Very Merry Holiday Sunburst Mirror

Pin It

Hey girl Hey!!!

Well look at me!  Posting 2 days in a row?!?  Nuh Ugh!

It's true.  I mean, I guess when your last craft show was less than stellar it leaves you with lots of time and inventory on hand.

On my way home last night I stopped by the Dollar Tree to pick up more Sundae Cups for Pincushions.  As Dollar Tree visits always go, I ended up walking out of there with only 2 sundae cups (all they had left...WTF?)  and 25 other items.... ;-)

We're hosting Thanksgiving again this year and I really wanted the house to be quasi-decorated for Christmas already.  I spotted some super cool ornament picks that I knew instantly would make an awesome Holiday Sunburst Mirror.  I mean, shocker, right, that I would make a holiday themed sunburst mirror?  Halloween, anyone?    Not to mention just my love of them.  Ginormous mirror, anyone?

Sunbusrt mirrors make a HUGE impact for minimal dolla-dolla-bills-ya'll.

Make one with me!  Here's your ingredient list:
Glitter Picks from the Dollar Tree
5 inch mirror--found at Hobbit Lobbit
2 Packs of Large Ornament Picks--Dollar Tree
3 Pack of Medium Ornament Picks--Dollar Tree
1 Pack of Small Ornament Picks--Dollar Tree
Hot Glue (LOTS OF IT) and Glue Gun
Wire for Hanging.






I really don't believe that there is a right or wrong way to do this.  What I do is start spacing out the largest picks evenly around the mirror.

Then I just fill in as I go with different sized picks.
I indented the smallest picks.
Do that until you're satisfied.  It's your Holiday Sunburst Mirror Girl, Rock it how you want it!
A clear sign you're doing an awesome job?
When it looks this good from the back!  :)

I added a little piece of wire to hang with to the back.  Then....Well, I rocked it girl!!!
Hung above my mantle.
AND, on my way home, I'm stoping for more to make 2 more little ones to go with it! I'll update that later!
Whoop!  There she is!  :)
My stepmom said something about the mantle looking
like it has a smiley face....now I can't stop seeing it!


Rock your holidays!

Big (Sunbursting) Smile,

These are really cute! They look like something you'd find at Pier One.

This is beautiful!! I love the idea of using ornaments for the end of the 'spokes'. And all 3 of them look great together!
