Okay, so as promised, here's the how to on my sunburst mirror that I made for my front room.
wood sunburst mirror I made last year.
Okay. So to start. I got some posterboard from the store. This was 30 cents for each sheet. Traced straight lines every 4 inches for the smaller rays, and every 6 inches on a separate piece of posterboard for the larger rays. I then found the center on the top of each section..marked at 2 inches and then 3 inches for the larger ones.
I then free handed the first ray. Going from the bottom corner of one end, curving it a little to meet the middle mark at the top, then did it again on the other side. Once I was happy with the shape of the first ray, I used that one as a guide for the next rays, and traced it.
Next was for the big rays. I just line them up between the gaps of the smaller rays and glued them.
And there you go. A cheap and easy way to add a little art :) I'm loving how this room is turning out...a little nautical...but not too much...just enough to give you an idea :)
