How to make a sunburst mirror

This boho-style sunburst mirror is perfect for adding to a gallery wall. Here’s how to make it!

You will need:

  • Round 30cm mirror plate
  • Metal 30cm ring
  • Raffia bundles
  • Scissors
  • Superglue

Step 1

Open the raffia bundles and cut the strands into lengths measuring 40cm.

Step 2

Take the first strand and fold in half. Place the looped end over the edge of the metal hoop. Fold it around, then pull the other ends through and pull tight.

Step 3

Continue to fold and loop the raffia strands around the hoop, pushing the loops tightly next to each other as you work.

Step 4

Apply a thin amount of superglue around the edge of the mirror plate. Carefully place the raffia hoop on top and press down to stick in place. Leave to dry.

Step 5

Trim the edges of the raffia with scissors to leave a neat finish.
