Sunburst Mirror for the Girls ~


My little girl loved my recent Sunburst Mirror - so I decided to make one for her! So, I grabbed a bunch of pink scrapbook paper that I had on-hand. 

I then rolled them into cones.

For the mirror I wanted something a little "girly" so I added a little white boa.

I then assembled it just like I did last week...and here you have it, a very pink sunburst mirror. 

I really love how the colors look against the brown wall. But unfortunately this wall is in my craft room...So here it is in my little girl's room - that yes, is pink as well.

I have been wanting to hang something above her bed for sometime, but I am so nervous about anything heavy. So this was just perfect and super lightweight! 

The only thing is I want a bit more contrast between the walls and the sunburst, so I may add a little white to the back.

Cute, I may do this for our playroom with a matching penant if I can find the "perfect" paper! Great idea!

Best wishes,

Don't worry about the contrast of the wall I think it is PERFECT. I love the idea. Where did you get the mirror? Stop by and visit, I have the perfect lampshade and lamp re-do that would be perfect for this room. I love linking up to your Wednesday party! Blessings...sherry

This is just so darn cute!! My daughters would both love this. I know when I show them, I'll be making it for them. They'll both be in college in the fall, so it's a perfect decoration for their dorm rooms. Great project for any age...Thanks for the inspiration.
Take care,
~Karen~
