Ah, cheap ass crafts. My favorite thing to spend my free time with!
For this thing I used a paper box, newspaper, hot glue gun, paper glue stick, knitting needle, an old mirror coaster, white acrylic paint, gold paint and some varnish.
I cut out a shape I liked from the box.
I decided to frame the mirror using another layer of the box around it.
I glued on the mirror to the first layer and then added the second layer on top of it.
After that I remembered that I would probably need some sort of hooks at the back if I wanted to be able to hang the mirror once finished. I punched a hole though the two layers using a large needle and added small steel wire hooks.
For the starbursts I used rolled paper. Check out this tutorial to see how I made them (no angle in mine just straight strips of paper).
I cut the paper rolls into different lengths and added them to the four sections around the mirror.
I easily could have kept this unpainted, it looks pretty cool with the newspaper rolls visible, but I decided to stick with my plan and paint it gold.
To really get the gold to pop out, I used white acylic paint for the first layer.
And then added about three layers of gold paint.
Not bad for an ice cream box, a free local newspaper, an old mirror coaster and some paint.
