I love seeing how people re-interpret projects from around blogland and add their own twist.  In the case of this wonderfully blingy sunburst mirror, the key difference is a complete change of materials!  All the way over in Malaysia, PC of MeiJo’s Joy was inspired by a PVC pipe sunburst mirror made by Alicia at Thrifty and Chic.  [see the original version]  Cutting PVC pipe is a messy affair, so PC decided to try the same effect using recycled, mess-free materials.  Then as a finishing touch, she decked the entire thing in sequins, leaving an end result that certainly doesn’t look like it’s a $1 project!  [how to make a recycled bubble sunburst mirror][via Mich L. in L.A.]

  • Lid, on hand
  • Cardboard, on hand
  • Mirror, $1
  • Screw-in hook, on hand or about $0.25
  • Hot glue, on hand
  • Sequins, on hand or $1

Total:  $1 and up
