Sunburst mirrors are a great focal point in any room! This particular mirror is great because the materials are fairly low cost & easy to attain. This mirror is time-consuming, but only because of the drying time involved.

Step 1: Gathering Supplies

You will need:
LOTS of paint stirrers  from Home Depot, Lowes, etc. (Make sure they are all from the same place & made of the same material or they will not look the same in the end.)

Spray Primer & Spray Paint (White primer, whatever color paint you want your suburst to be, I've even made chalkboard ones before)

Round mirror (I got mine at Hobby Lobby in the candle mirror section. The size of the mirror is entirely up to you, but the bigger the mirror, the more paint stirrers you will need)

Mirror Mastic & caulk gun (You can get this on the mirror aisle of the hardware store. It is what you use to hang mirrors on the wall.)

Hot glue & a hot glue gun

Heavy object

Shoe box or other cardboard

Thumbtacks

Wire (I used the kind you hang pictures with that you can get in the hardware aisle at Wal-Mart for a couple of dollars, but any kind that can support a decent weight should do.)
<p>Very nice, but I prefer golden mirrors or eventually black. For example http://www.sunburstmirrors.org/</p>
Very cool!!!! :) How much are the paint stirrers?
They're free at Home Depot and Lowe's. I try not to get tons of them at a time, maybe 5 or 10. Some of the people that work there are a little stingy with them, but overall I've never had any problems getting a handful. <br> <br>You can order them in bulk online also, but I've never actually done that.
