Diy Sunburst Mirror

So I’ve been drooling over this sunburst mirror for a few years now. All the mirrors that I like are way out of my price range {such as this one}. Why in the world is this mirror $449!? I dunno. So I thought it was about time that I attempted to make one myself. Here’s what you’ll need.
Shopping list:
10″ mirror {I got mine at Target for $12.99}
metallic gold spray paint {Michael’s $4}
3 packs of shish kabob sticks {Target 99¢ each}
E6000 glue {$2 Michael’s}
scissors or clippers
glue gun {already had –>not pictured}
Total cost = around $22
– cut your shish kabob sticks into various lengths. I cut around 60-5″ sticks, 40-6″ sticks, 40-7″ sticks and 20- 8″ sticks {place in separate labeled piles so they’ll be easy to grab when you start the pattern} 
-Fire up your hot glue gun and turn you mirror face down.
-I started by lining up 4 of the 8″ sticks with the lines on the front of the mirror. Dab a pea-size amount of hot glue on each point on the backside of the mirror 1/2″ from the edge. Place each stick accordingly. 
-start the pattern {see below}
-Once complete, squeeze E6000 glue over the sticks to seal any weak spots that the hot glue gun may have missed.
-Let the glue dry overnight
-spray paint everything the next day {be sure to cover the mirror}
easy as that…
