More Mirror Fun

Prior to making my sunburst/star burst mirror purchase a couple days ago, I had been virtually shopping for these for a few months. I had also been scouring blogs for some great DIY versions. Here are some of my favorite homemade mirrors you can try for yourself:

This lovely version is made out of old cereal boxes! It's pretty awesome and creative, if you ask me.

This beautiful version is made with a bundle of decorative branches from Ikea. Again, totally brilliant! View her tutorial HERE

This funky version is made of an equally unorthodox material- PVC pipes! I love it. Read her tutorial HERE.

Isn't it interesting how each one is so different? This is the type of project you can really put your own spin on.

Maybe you love this look but aren't feeling very creative. There are so many options to choose from online, from really affordable to definitely splurge-worthy. The MIRROR I bought this week was from Home Goods, if you're lucky enough to have one nearby. I've rounded up a few from my favorite place to order stuff online, Amazon. 

Side note: Isn't it awesome how Amazon lets you ship items within your order to different locations, without having to check out and enter your billing information a million different times? That feature was so convenient last year as I was ordering Christmas gifts for people across the country. 
Amazon = Amazing. I did my wedding registry on there too, and the Universal Registry feature was the best thing since sliced bread.

First up, this 20" wrought iron version from American Chateau. It's a little smaller than most, so I think it would look good on a small wall or in a grouping of mirrors.

If you've got deep pockets, you may want to consider this beautiful mirror. It's all over Amazon at different prices, ranging from $617 to $798. That's definitely out of my budget, but I do think it would be a great piece. It's very glamorous!




 I know it's not exactly the same as a sunburst mirror, but I have always loved THIS one at Pier 1.  There are other great affordable versions at Hobby Lobby and Target, too.
