Starburst Mirror Tutorial. 

This is the easiest and least creative of all my mirrors, but I still love it.  I needed a mirror that would fill about 16-20” and I was in a time crunch.  This mirror consists of a 6” round mirror with a hole to mount it, and a package of wood skewer sticks (the kind you use in bbq’ing for shish kabobs).  I flipped over the mirror on its back, and poured a large amount of wood glue and added the skewers to go all the way around the mirror, pointed edge out.  After I made sure they were evenly spread out, I poured more glue over the top.  A lot of it, to completely corner the back of the mirror.  I added a tab off a pop can as the mounting bracket to the back of the mirror. I let it sit overnight.
