This is one of the most inexpensive pieces to create – a few mirrors, spray paint, and bamboo skewers! That’s it!

Materials:

  • 4″ mirror
  • Assorted smaller mirrors
  • Bamboo skewers
  • Spray paint
  • Soda can tab
  • Hot glue gun and glue stick

The easiest way to paint the skewers is to stick them in a piece of floral foam so that they stand up. Use two coats of spray paint to make sure each of them are thoroughly painted!

Draw lines as a guide on the back of the mirror. Start by finding the center and drawing “wedges”. My mirror had sixteen wedges.

Use the glue gun and put a bead of glue on a line. Add the skewer with the unpainted point in the center. Continue all the way around.

Take the soda can tab and slightly bend with a pair of pliers. Be careful doing this as the edges are sharp… Don’t ask me how I found this out! Glue to soda tab on the back of the art piece.

Turn the art piece over and glue mirrors at the outside edge of each skewer as well as randomly scattered through the center.

  • Oh I love this Cher!!!  Where would I find the little mirrors at?  My mother-in-laws birthday is day after tomorrow and since I just finished up my quarter yesterday for school, I have time to do it!  I think this is so awesome!

      I bought them at Hobby Lobby! I’m sure any craft store would have them! Julia Gulia would probably like one, also, if she’s anything like The Han!
