Lastly, I used a hot glue gun to glue the silverware to the mirror. I glued the silverware directly to the back of the mirror and then glued a piece of cardboard to the back for extra hold. Not quite sure yet how I will hang it, which is why my hands are holding it up in the picture. Not real worried about figuring out a way to hang it yet, because my roommate (brother) probably won't allow it to hang on the wall anyway. He thinks it's a pretty stupid idea. I happen to LOVE it. Can't wait to hang it in my kitchen someday!

Silverware Starburst Mirror
I mentioned earlier that I've been wanting to make a silverware starburst mirror for a while now. Using the tutorial from here, I finally made my own. It was super easy and probably took about 20 minutes to make. The total cost of the mirror was $11....SCORE!First, I found this basket of silverware at an antique store for $5. Then, I found this round mirror from Hobby Lobby for $6.
