Sunburst mirrors are beautiful, but you don’t want to spend too much money on one, right?This sunburst mirror only cost me three dollars to make myself.Whether or if you already have some of the goods on hand will determine how much extra your version will cost.Get the materials you need first.The Number One Reflecting Surface2 – glueScissors (No. 3)Sticks, or Skewers, Count: 4Number 5: Cardboard of sufficient thicknessSixth, a spherical object that is less large than the mirror.As a candle holder, I utilised a mirror-backed candlestick I found at the Dollar Tree.Before using one of these, you’ll need to take the felt backing off the mirror.Make a mirror image on some heavy cardboard.A strong box was employed.Sunburst mirrors have this back as its reflective surface.Trace a circle onto the cardboard using a circular item that is smaller than your mirror.The skewers for your kabobs should be positioned along this line as a guide.The original circle I created was too big, so I traced a smaller one within it using a ribbon spool.This explains why there are really 2 circles in the image above.You may experiment with the placement of the skewers on the cardboard to get the ideal size for your sunburst.I was limited to using 7″ sticks as skewers.Scissors are useful for this purpose.You probably shouldn’t use your best pair of scissors for cutting paper.The utility scissors that were included in my knife block came in handy.Until I was happy with the arrangement, I fiddled with the skewers.When I was satisfied with the arrangement, I took up each piece and carefully placed a drop of glue within the marked circle.Since E6000 dries considerably more slowly than hot glue, I had plenty of time to arrange the skewers before they were permanently attached.To use the E6000 successfully, I had to wait about 24 hours for it to dry.In order to keep the skewers submerged in the adhesive while it cured, I inverted a vase over them.
(A lot of adhesive was involved.
)I put a paper towel and a slow susan beneath the whole thing to help it spin and move around more easily.After the adhesive had dried, I covered the mirror with newspaper and painters’ tape.Next, I covered the coffee table with a stack of old newspapers and sprayed the entire area with a cheerful sunburst.There are two things I must disclose:One, in my eagerness to get started, I attached the mirror to the skewers before priming and painting them.Painting it before installing the mirror would have been much simpler.Since it was only about 5 degrees outdoors when I built this, the answer to your second question is yes: I sprayed painted it in my living room.It was too cold to paint in the garage.I didn’t think about the paint fumes, but the living room furniture was never in any danger.When it became too stuffy in here, I had to crack a window.Take a look at the final product.There are 16 inches of height to it.For the wall mounting, I utilised a 3M velcro strip.Here is how I’ve broken out the expenses:Mirror Skewers for Kebabs for a Dollar To the tune of $2I have all the supplies on hand (cardboard, glue, paint).
For a grand total of three dollars Do you want to get a preview of my current project?

Published at:The South By Southwest Interactive conference in 2007 was a watershed moment for Twitter, with over 60,000 tweets being sent.
The Twitter team used the gathering to start the process of expanding their user base.
The original 140-character restriction was not set by Twitter, but by cell carriers due to the platform’s origins as an SMS-based service.
However, when Twitter evolved into a web platform, the 140-character restriction was maintained since it was consistent with the Twitter brand.
After all, Twitter is a service with the goal of producing easily skimmable material in today’s fast-paced, information-overloaded world.
Keep in mind that there is currently NO way to reverse anything.
Anyone may read, retweet, and reply to your tweets.
While tweets may be removed from your timeline, once anything is posted online, it can never be taken back.
Try not to use texting or slang.
It’s not easy to get your point through in a tweet that’s limited to 140 characters, but keep in mind: do you really want to be communicating with people who don’t speak the language of your future employers or industry leaders?
If it doesn’t, don’t use it; you won’t be regarded seriously.
In general, you should keep your tweets to a conversational tone for around 80% of the time and promotional in nature for the other 20%.
Complement tweets on business news with helpful suggestions for customers to spark conversation.
Post a link to your company’s mailing list signup page rather than a product page to encourage people to join your mailing list instead of making a straight purchase.
Since joining Twitter is so simple, many people do not give any thought to their marketing goals or their actual usage of the platform.
The Twitter alternatives are vast, but you can truly make the most of them if you take the time to clarify your objectives.
