Sunburst Mirror

I would LOVE to make this beautiful Anthropologie inspired DIY mirror for any room in my home!

I may say this about a lot most of my DIY projects, but this one has to be one of my favourites! Last month for the Create with Me challenge, I asked YOU to vote on which material I should DIY with this month, and you chose Coat Hangers. I’m not gonna lie… I was hoping you would chose that, because I already had an idea in my head! Say hello to my brand new Sunburst Mirror. Come see how easy it was to make!

I started with a circle that was slightly smaller than my mirror and traced it onto an old 3/4″ thick piece of wood.

I used the band saw to cut my circle out, but you could use a jigsaw or scroll saw too.

Next, drill holes into your wood. I found a drill bit that was slightly larger than my coat hangers and drilled three lines – one on each side and one in the center – all the way around the edge of the circle. I had 24 holes in each row at the end. I tried to make the holes so that they weren’t all lined up to off-set the hangers.

This pile of hangers was surprisingly hard to collect! I even had friends “borrowing” a few out of their work closets for me! Obviously I need to visit the dry cleaners more often…

Next, take your side cutters, and cut the tops off of the hangers (the curved part). Then you want to bend the sides. I bent them wherever I wanted by pushing them against a piece of wood. A counter top or any hard surface would work.

Lay the hangers out to make sure you like the look. [note: I cut more after this photo was taken because I didn’t think it was full enough]. I used a total of 18 hangers (36 pieces when cut up).

Then stick the hangers in a board and spray paint them. First paint the whole hanger with champagne, and then after that dries, paint the bottom half with gold. That will give the piece that ombre look.

When they are all dry, you start placing them into the holes on your wooden circle. You have to push them in tight. You may want to dip the ends in wood glue to help them stay put if they aren’t staying.

Finally, I attached hanging hardware to the back of the mirror to hang it, and used 3M automotive double-sided tape to attach the mirror to the front.

Now hang it on your wall and enjoy your masterpiece!

    1. I thank you very much for this tutorial because I had seen one a little bigger at Home Goods Store but the price tag made me put it back down LOL it was 199.99 $ ! a little steep for a little something for a guest room plus hubby was looking at me with that don’t( even think about it look)LOL ! I have a round larger mirror without an border & wanted to do something with it so now thanks to you I will make this as it is simple but beautiful & can add to my collections of things I have made & then for my grown girls home as they will love this !

  1. Such a nice twist to typical sun burst mirror DIY.Love the idea of using coat hanger. Thank you for linking up with us at #HomeMattersParty . We would love to have you again next friday.

  2. Lyndi! Look at you getting handy with those power tools! I’m a total chicken when it comes to them… which is weird because my dad owns his own construction company. I really need to get over that fear. This mirror is AMAZING!

    I included this project in a roundup of some of my favorite DIY and craft projects from people attending SNAP! I’d love for you to take a peek. You can find it here:
