I’ve got a fun DIY Bamboo Sunburst Mirror to share with you guys. I was inspired to create a new mirror to place on the ledge shelf above our Wallpaper Beadboard Wall in our family room.
DIY Bamboo Sunburst Mirror
A while ago my parents scored some damaged bamboo fencing on clearance for a couple of bucks. They gave them to me knowing I’d figure out something to do with them eventually. Well, inspiration finally hit to turn those bamboo shades into a fun bamboo mirror.

How to Make a Bamboo Mirror
The first step is cutting down that bamboo fence. My husband helped and cut most of them for me. I cut my bamboo slices about 1 1/2″ long, but it’s up to you. My suggestion is cut to the length you’re comfortable with. We used a miter saw, make sure you protect your eyes too.
Then I used hot glue to attach the bamboo slices. This part does take some time so I’d suggest setting yourself up with a good movie. You could also use craft adhesive glue. I started with my inner circle and worked my way out.
You can see that the outer layer is glued to the bamboo row next to it. I just put the glue on the side and attached it that way.
I scored the mirror at a garage sale for 50 cents, so this mirror cost under $5, although it cost me only 50 cents and some time.
