Wall Art

Can u guess what's this Wall Art made out of? Well its a room divider curtain. I had these room divider curtains with me which was gifted  to my mother by her friend and since its was of no use to her she gave it to me and yes it was of no use to me too but the way i used it now i feel its worth it.

First i measured how many piece will i require in a row on the wall  and i needed 7 piece each in a row. Than i took my husbands fishing line :) and tied 7 piece in a row.

After i was done done joining all of them i nailed the top first piece to the wall leaving a gap in between each row and my wall art was ready...;) loved the way it looked.

Cardstock SunBurst Mirror

Made this Sunburst Mirror out of card stock.Previously i made a sunburst mirror but this time i wanted to make something different for the bedroom so i check for some blogs and found this one on i loved the way it looked and it was something that i was searching for something different. You will find the instruction for this project on the above given link.

SunBurst Mirror

Made this sunburst mirror out of Sushi mate. Had an old sushi mat which i thought would be perfect to make this. In fact I had two different kinds of mat luckily the one with thinner cylindrical bamboo sticks and another with flat and wider bamboo sticks. So I used the flats one to give a long effect and the cylindrical to give short effect.
1.I Untied the sushi mat and wiped them well.

2. I dint had to cut the flat bamboo stick as they were perfect in size for the mirror. But the cylindrical bamboo stick I cut it little shorter than the flat ones all in equal size.
3. I spray painted the flat bamboo stick in black
and cylindrical bamboo stick in gold.
4. By the time the paint would dry i took the mirror and started marking on the behind of the mirror with a measuring tape 1/2 cm below the edge of the mirror and 1/2 cm apart as it would be easy for me while gluing the sticks on the mirror.(check the image below)
 5. Once the sticks were dried i started gluing the sticks to the mirror using a hot glue gun. I first started with the black sticks and once that was done i started gluing the gold sticks in between the black sticks.And the result is seen below.
