Step 1: Start by removing any stickers or labels from the mirror. Changing up the lengths of the dowels creates a brilliant design oryou can stick with keeping the sticks at the same length. If you do plan on keeping the sticks at different lengths, try to cut several dowels so you’ve got a pile before you start gluing.
Step 2: Place a paper towel over your workspace and flip the mirror over so it won’t get scratched. Place the wooden dowels about aninch into the mirror, away from the edge. Randomly place your dowels onto an order of sequence of your choice. Continue to fill in the open spaces around the outside edge until there’s no more room.
Step 4: Take the starburst mirror outdoors, cover your work area withnewspaper, boxes, or with anything that can keep your work areaclean and spray the wooden dowels with paint. Once dry, flip and spray with another coat. Touch up as needed.
Step 6: You’re set! Find the perfect spot to hang and display your new D.I.Y. starburst mirror!
