I was sitting here thinking of a craft we could do together. I am making a chrysanthemum mirror out of plastic spoons. I have all these handles left over. I didn't throw them away, thinking I can make something out of these.
I am a big fan of sunburst mirrors. Then it hit me. These spoon handles would be perfect to make Kayleigh her own little sunburst mirror.
I asked her what color she wanted her mirror to be. Her favorite color at the moment is red. So, no surprise that is the color she chose.
We started with a 4" mirror from Hobby Lobby and a batch of spoon handles.
We painted the handles with red enamel paint. We probably should have roughed up the handles before painting them. They chipped pretty easily. We applied 2 coats.
I hot glued the painted handles to the back of the mirror and added a hanger. We added a red (of course) ribbon to the hanger. To add a little interest we decided to add some cute little buttons along the edge of the mirror. We chose green, blue, red, white and pink buttons.
Here is Kayleigh with her own little sunburst mirror to take home. She told me she is hanging it over her bed.
