We cannot get over how amazing this DIY starburst mirror looks! Made completely from chipboard and spray painted gold, it looks just like the real thing and will save you a lot of money, too.
Since chipboard can be tricky to cut, we recommend using a cutting machine for this project. Make sure to read our crafting tip below, then follow our video tutorial to create your own starburst mirror.
Brighten up your home
This DIY starburst mirror will make a beautiful statement piece in your living room, dining room, or bedroom. One natural place to hang it is above a mantel or console table where you could also place some paper greenery, like our crepe paper eucalyptus branches. It will also look really lovely with any type of seasonal or holiday decor!
Skill level: Intermediate
Crafting tip: Test cut some scrap chipboard to find the best setting for your machine. We cut using the Cricut recommended setting for 2mm chipboard. Be sure to check that the chipboard has been cut all the way through before removing the mat from your machine. You can run extra passes until it is cut through (sometimes it takes a few passes).
