Shirt Buttons to Starry Mirror

1 Materials

Easy

I wanted to make a mirror, I like using recycled items in my craft.
I found lots of shirt buttons the same size.
I also found some mirrors in the shape of stars. I decided to use these, but wasn't sure on how.

I took a newspaper and drawed around the star mirror.
I then drawed lines across from points across the middle and through the middle of the arc shape. I then folded on each line. I measured out 5cm from each point. Then joined each dot , this made a pentagon.
My husband used this pattern to cut out of wood.

I put the mirror in the middle, I drew around it.
I had drawn on the wood to find the middle to help with positioning.

I started by sticking the mirror on the wood with pink stuff glue.
I then started to lay on the buttons, when I had gone all-around and was happy with the arrangement, I stuck them down with PVA.
