DIY – Sunburst mirrors (from disposable cutlery!)

A super pretty sunburst mirror created with disposable plastic cutlery! A super pretty sunburst mirror created with disposable plastic cutlery!I love mirrors. Not because I feel the need to look in it all day long, but because they come in so many pretty designs. They also make a room look bigger, so that’s a big plus too! I already have a large collection of mirrors but there was one in particular that I still wanted: a sunburst mirror.

I fall in love every time I see them on Pinterest. But unfortunately they are really expensive and I never see them in thrift stores. So for a while now, I was thinking about doing a great DIY version of a sunburst mirror. And when I saw this plastic silver cutlery set I knew it would work for this project. This sunburst mirror is super easy to make and really budget friendly. But the most important is that it looks absolutely amazing! Read More »

DIY project: make garden markers from paint stirrers (+ an easy way on how to transfer the text)

Sometimes it’s so hard to think of a good gift for someone you love. You want to give them something they will use and remember but they already have so much stuff. And to make it even worse: there is close to nothing on their wishlist. So what to do? Well, pick something they love to do and create something that helps them with it! This garden markers are a great example of just that. My dad loves his vegetable garden (I promise I will make pictures this summer, it’s really pretty) but I noticed he didn’t had any garden markers. So I decided to make him some for his birthday. I called my mom for a list of all the vegetables and bought a lot of paint stirrers. I love the end result and so did my dad. I think they will look great in his garden! Read More »
