Ever since I posted my DIY Sunburst Mirror, my little sister has been dying to make one for her room. Of course, she wanted to wait until I got there so that we could do it together. First, we had to decide how to make it unique. Her room is lime green, black, and white, with bursts of pink, therefore we decided to go with the pink. Not just any pink though... pink with glitter! Of course, a glittery pink sunburst mirror is any 13 year old's dream... so we went out started with our supplies. We followed exactly what I had done with my sunburst mirror, but instead of purchasing the metallic paints, we grabbed Rustoleum's Berry Pink Gloss spray paint. Along with this, we picked up some pink glitter from Martha Stewart.
Instead of painting the bamboo sticks first, we decided to assemble the whole thing, except for the mirror, and then spray paint the bamboo. While she spray painted, I went along and glittered each stick. Once we completed this step, we decided to change up the framing on the mirror. We cut out a circular template that was slightly smaller in size compared to the mirror, and used double sided tape to fasten it to the mirror. We then rubbed Martha Stewart craft glue on the exposed edge and dusted with glitter so that the edge was solid glitter. Once the glitter was on we immediately peeled off the template to keep the template from being glued to the mirror for good. To complete the mirror frame, we used a wet cotton swab to fix any places where the glue had seeped under the template, waited for the glue to completely dry, and then adhered the mirror to the backing.
The end result... a fabulously flashy sunburst mirror fit for a teenage queen!
