Recycled Cereal Box Sunburst Mirror

Recycled Cereal Box Sunburst Mirror

I just can not get enough of these fabulous sunburst mirrors. Even though there are many different sizes, shapes and designs the general idea is such a classic that will never go out of style. {I would have no problem having one in each room of my home}Last fall I put this one together {found here} out of wooden skewers. It cost a big total of $6 and I could not be happier with it; however, I’m totally thrilled that I was able to make this one today for next to half that, using recycled cereal boxes.I began by taking two cereal boxes apart and cutting off the top and bottom tabs leaving a rectangle.

Using a paper cutter I cut the cardboard into 1/4 inch strips.

The first {inner} layer of the sunburst was made from 29 strips. Each strip was folded and hot glued as shown above. Bend each strip in half and dap a little hot glue on the ‘open’ end to form a teardrop. Flatten the ‘loop’ side and dab a little hot glue in the crease to form a ‘point’. Holding both ends ‘puff’ together to create an eye shape.

Using a teacup saucer as my guide, I laid out the first layer.

Once I had everything evenly spaced and aligned I dabbed a tiny bit of hot glue onto the touching part of every piece to hold in place. {as shown above}

For the second layer, I altered the folded strips just a bit as shown above. Taking another 29 strips; I folded each in half, hot gluing the crease together to create a point. This layer is actually glued in-between the first layer pieces. To do this I ran a bead of hot glue down each outer side and slid into place as shown below. {creased side pointing out}

As you work your way around the entire edge, gently press the glued sides together to assure a good firm hold. {You’re basically just filling in the spaces}

I added a third layer using the same techniques as layer two.

Once the sunburst shape was complete I cut a circle out of a piece of cardboard and hot glued it to the center. {I squirted on a lot of hot glue and let it drip in the creases to ensure a good strong hold}

Next was paint. I used several very light coats of regular spray paint to cover the cardboard. I used a combination of grey flat primer and a dusting of satin nickel.

Once dry, I was ready to attach the mirror. I used a 10 inch round mirror that can be found in many craft stores in the candle section {they are actually candle plates and run approximately $3.99}

I simply used a plate hanger to attach the two together. The springs do a good job of holding it in place. {I did not use any glue}

The finished mirror measures a total of 28 inches in diameter.

I love it just as much as the first one; if not more!

It is going to go in my powder room that I am finally getting around to finishing. I know, I teased you last month with the crepe streamer ruffle board and fabric {found here}, I just get into too many projects at once! I have a few more final touches to add to be able to check this room off my list! Enjoy!


  1. Raced over here after being SO impressed by your place mat bag….and found this fantastic cereal box mirror. You are one creative lady! Love this idea. Where do I go to sign up???

  2. This is absolutely brilliant!

  3. What a great, creative idea! I love that you created something you really wanted from almost nothing. You inspire me (:

  4. Another stunner Stephanie!! this is gorgeous!


  5. Oh my goodness Stephanie! That is stunning and sooooo creative and inspiring!

  6. Have you seen this one from the HGTV Green Home 2010? It’s made out of recycled magazines. I totally thought of you when I saw this!

  7. These are beautiful!!!!!

  8. How cool is that! My favorite part is that it is made out of cereal boxes . . . made into a great design. Thanks for the inspiration.

  9. Beautiful Stephanie Lynn! I thought the skewers were cool, but this is fantastic!! Great job!

  10. I cannot wait to see the powder room! This is amazing!! Great job!

  14. This is so fun! I’ve seen these with toilet paper rolls, but I love it with the cereal box. So many more possibilities!

  15. That looks amazing. I always thought some of those sunbursts mirrors could be made with kabob sticks, but I never thought about cereal boxes. Way to think outside the box (haha).

  16. That is soooo very, very cool! I’m not sure I would have the patience to do something like that, though!

  27. Boy howdy, you are amazing! I am completely impressed, and that takes a lot! It also takes a lot for me to use the phrase “Boy howdy”!

  28. Wow, that’s just. . . .WOW! You have some serious talent!

  29. Absolutely amazingly awesome. You do great work.

  30. that is amazing stephanie, love that you used cereal boxes!

    Robin –

  32. That is amazing. It’s absolutely gorgeous! This is my favorite one by far. I’m really amazed how great it looks.

  33. Wow! I love this idea…you were definitely thinking outside the (cereal) box on this one!


  34. Wow – this is seriously impressive. Cereal boxes???! Could you be any more creative? I love how it turned out. So classic looking.

  35. Brilliant! I might have to try this!

  36. I LOVE this!

  38. WOW! So very creative! I can’t believe it’s made with a cereal box!!!

  39. I can’t believe it! I’ll bet this would be a fun project for a meticulous older kid. Not that I have one, or several. 🙂 Lisa~

  40. Oh, Stephanie Lynn, I just ♥ it! Or as my teen son would say, “super love it!” He likes to tease me about my craft crushes! Have you enetered my giveaway yet, it’s my first one! I’m giving away 3 super glammy Sam Moon cuff bracelets on my blog:

  41. so pretty!

  42. When I saw the title I was skeptical, but that is really great looking!

  43. Wow! I can’t believe that’s cereal boxes!

  44. Holy camoly! YOU ARE AMAZING!

  45. This is HANDS DOWN the coolest thing I have seen in blogland. The coolest!! You are a freaking genius to visualize this and then create it. I am amazed…and delighted that you showed us how to make it! You are such a smart woman.

  46. This is amazing. Even though you showed us how you did it…I still can’t believe you made this. Well done girl!

  47. That is so cool! It’s a larger version of the TP roll mirror!

  48. I have a thing for these mirrors as well! This is just super creative! I love that you have created one that is affordable for everyone. Hope you are having a great weekend!


  49. How did you come up with that? Genius, I say!

  50. WOW! What an awesome and inventive idea! Looks great-I’d NEVER guess it was cereal boxes!

  51. Wow – this is beautiful.

    You are so unbelievably talented. I absolutely love your blog and am in awe of the things you create and share with us. I have already copied your sunburst skewer/shish kabob star burst mirror, and have whipped up a few other neat wall art decorative items as well, all because of things I have learned from your blog.

    I will definitely be using a plate hanger in the future for my art instead of other methods I have tried – what an awesome idea ( another awesome idea from you )

    Love your craft room and I am looking forward to seeing all your ideas and crafts posted on your blog in the future.

  52. Your ideas are simply fabulous!! Since I am not good at spray painting, I think I will make one out of a sheet of posterboard that would match my decor – that will eliminate using spray paint!! Keep the great ideas coming – we love you. – Carole

  53. I LOVE this! Very clever 🙂

  54. OMG that is crazy brilliant! And to think I throw my cereal boxes in the recycling bin. What a waste!
