Starburst mirror are very popular in decorating. They can be pretty pricey, but we can easily make one at a fraction of the cost using wood shims that we buy very inexpensively at home improvement store. We just need 18 packs of wood Shims, 12-inch diameter wood floral or craft ring, 1 – 7-inch diameter mirror, an old beaded necklace, wood glue and hot glue, saw, heavy duty picture hanging hardware and paint or stain.
To start making starburst mirror, we can arrange our shims anyway we like. We can play with a few different variations, but settle on the design. Then, we can put together each section using wood glue in between each shim and let the sections dry. Once we have all the sections done, we can glue the sections together to create the starburst shape. We can glue the ring onto the back of the glued together shims and let dry overnight. We can use white spray paint to paint the front and sides of the shim sunburst or leave natural. When the paint is dry, we can glue mirror to center front. Next, we can cut the extra shims into 1-inch pieces.
After that, we can continue making starburst mirror by spraying paint them white and let dry. We may also need to sand the edges lightly after cutting. We can measure around mirror and cut beaded necklace to that measurement. Then, we can spray paint them to match shims. After this step, we can continue by gluing the necklace around mirror and then the cut pieces of shims as shown. We can use hot glue. Then, we can attach picture hanger to the back of wreath on top of the wood ring. Finally, we can hang the beautiful starburst mirror wherever we want. We can hang it in our living room as a focal point or place it to beautify our comfortable bedroom.
