DIY Plastic Spoon Sunburst Mirror!

Okay ya'll, welcome to the final day of Entry Projects! I have to admit...i'm very excited about how this ridiculously easy Pinterest Project turned out.


I'm sure you've seen this on Pinterest 67 gillion times by now. I'm pretty sure this is one of the OG pins. (You remember when you had to get an invite to Pinterest?!)

Well a friend of mine from work made a few for her house and they looked incredible, so I thought I would give it a go.

As usual, I have a hard time following directions, so I didn't really follow a tutorial, and I ran into a few issues. I suggest looking up a tutorial that rocks, and using it t make your very own :)


You will need:
  • cardboard
  • a small round mirror
  • a crap-load of cheapie plastic spoons
  • hot glue
  • spray paint of your choice
  • a little hook to hang it up with
To start, cut a circle out of your cardboard. I used an old basket I had laying around that seemed to be a good size.



Get your hot glue ready, because you will be using the crap out of it!


Glue your little round mirror in the center of your cardboard. You can find these mirrors in the candle area of Wal-Mart. I already had a few lying around, but they're usually about $1.00-$2.00.


This next part is where it gets fun. You need to break the handle off all of your spoons. I did this while watching this weeks episode of Glee. (Am I the only one having a hard time getting into this season without Finn?) I don't have a picture, but if you're doing this while distracted, it's not nearly as bad as you think. For my mirror (about 13" in diameter) I used 96 spoons. (2 packages of 48 from Wal-Mart) They were on rollback for $1.00 a piece and the only item I had to purchase for this project. Boom!


When all your spoons are broken, just start gluing until your fingers are burned! Simply move around and around until you reach the center. (Please excuse my messy work area. I was trying to accomplish this in under 20 minutes so I didn't clear off the kitchen table ;) )



It's important to stagger your "petals". For each row, make sure that your spoon is layered between 2 spoons, like above.



When I had reached the center, I cut out a piece of contact paper that I wanted to remain. I then sprayed the entire thing down with 2 coats of high-gloss white spray paint. I guess this part isn't necessary if you're using white spoons, but I think it really helped to make it look less "plastic-spoony" and more "pretty-expense-sunburst-mirror-y". :)

After it's dry, attach a little hook on the back with hot glue, and hang it up! You will love it, I promise!




This is one of those projects that makes me SO happy I finally did. It's nice to knock one of those off your "to make" Pinboards, am I right?


If you're just tuning in, welcome! Be sure to check out our Entry Progress as well as our DIY Pallet Wall.


I'll be back with a delicious crockpot recipe tomorrow :)

Until Next Time,

Kylie
