DIY Mid Century Modern Gold Sunburst Mirror

Happy Friday! If you’re looking for a fun weekend project how about making a gold sunburst mirror for your home? This DIY project was pretty easy to make and costs less than $40!

I’ve always loved mid-century modern gold sunburst mirrors but hated the thought of paying more than $100 for one. So I decided to make my own using a mirror I got at Hobby Lobby for $10 (it was 50% off at the time) and some wooden dowels. Check out the video below for a step-by-step tutorial on how to make your own sunburst mirror.

Supplies:

Create your own mid-century modern gold sunburst mirror using a cheap store bought mirror and a few supplies!
SUPPLIES:
- Metallic gold spray paint, I like the Valspar
- 10″ round mirror, I got mine at Hobby Lobby for $10
- Hot glue gun and glue sticks
- Mirror template
- Miter saw, I have a Makita and it’s great!
- 28, 1/4″ x 36″ dowels cut into the following sizes:
• 16 – 18″ pieces
• 16 – 15″ pieces
• 16 – 12″ pieces
• 16 – 9″ pieces

Hi Sarah, I love this idea, I just found my mirror from hobby lobby, however I am doing a 14.75 mirror.(Large wall) How do you suggest I change my dowel placement and sizing for the increased diameter? Love your blog!

    Hi Rachel! I’d recommend adding two inches to each dowel length to make the finished mirror a little larger. You may need to use an epoxy type glue to hold the weight of the longer dowels. I would glue a few with hot glue and see how it holds and if you need more support try another glue. Happy crafting!
