A sunburst mirror made from flower tags


When sunburst mirrors first entered home fashion... honestly, I hated them.
 But it seems even I get influenced by what's "haute couture" ;)
They grew pretty quickly on me.


Especially those made of wood...
In fall I made one of driftwood.


Than I sold it.
So I copied Nester's craft paper eddition.


It was a tad to small on this wall.

Than I saw those cheap flower tags at store (Biltema)...
and I kept my eyes open for a round thrift store mirror.


I played around a while with how to arrange the tags.


After finding how I liked it best, it was just to warm up the hot glue gun...
And voila:


Sunburst mirror 
Nr 3

I like the one you made out of driftwood, and the nr 3. Great work!!

It looks really nice on your wall, such a beautiful room! I do love the driftwood one the best, just because of the natural material. I love the outdoors, and love bringing the outdoors in, whenever I can.
