A Smaller Sunburst Mirror

So, I learned a thing or two about scale this week....
I realized that the sunburst mirror I made last year and put hours of work into- is seriously too huge to hang above our bed.  My hubby might be a little irritated if he had to sleep with golden spikes poking down near his head!

Good thing I spotted a similar (and smaller) version of the mirror at Hobby Lobby. 
It only comes in brown, but hallelujah..the mirrors are already in place and it was 50% off. 
The only thing I had to do was spray it gold and embellish with plastic rhinestones.
Don't worry...I left out the hearts, butterflies, and flowers.

I used E6000 to glue the rhinestones to the metal.

Then I gave the mirror a couple coats of Rust-Oleum gold spray paint  

Thank goodness the little mirrors each had a little plastic film
 to protect them from the spray paint. 
I wish I would have gone this route the first time, it took me about an hour to finish.
Next time, I will be sure to use a measuring tape before starting a project!

Wow Amazing! I was looking to recreate this but I️ just would like to know first What kind of mirrors did you use? And what are the sizes?
