These are all the rage right now. I just had to have one. I am NOT going to spend $50 or $70 or $400 on one. So when I found this tutorial I knew I could make it myself.
I liked this one a lot but I changes some things up.
I used a wood base and spray pained it a silvery color. I used dowel rods of 2 different sizes instead of skewers and I painted those too.
I bought all but one package of small round mirrors at Jo-Anns. I used 3 different sizes, they were only about $.99 each.
I used hot glue because hot glue is cool. Hot when you touch it before it dries though. I randomly placed the mirrors and glued them down.
When I was done with all that I found a round wood disc that was super thin and glued that to the back and added a picture hanger thingy (yes that is the technical term), and hung it on the dining room wall so it would not break.
Originally I was going to hang this in our bedroom, then I thought it was super pretty so I would put it in the living room. After I saw it in the dining room we decided to keep it there. My house is small so it kind of makes it bigger.
So, if you have been thinking of making one and think it is too hard, try it. Easy peasy and cheap too. I think I got all I needed for under $20.
