Sunburst Mirror

Seems that DIY Sunburst Mirrors are the hottest thing in the blogosphere these days.  I saw one at The Lettered Cottage and thought it would be perfect for my back porch.  Here's the link to their instructions.

Mine is made like two separate sunbursts one on a 12" and the other on an 8" wooden ring that I then glued on top of each other.  I added a wire loop to the larger ring for hanging before I glued on the shims.  I didn't seal the final product as I'm hoping the cedar will weather to grey.

Will post a pic later of the small version I made from clothespins for Mom...from inspiration at In My Own Style.

I love mine, cheap and easy and kind of rustic-cool.
