Bamboo Sunburst Mirror

I'm getting ready to make something that I hope will be really great.  I have seen so many beautiful, hand-crafted, sunburst mirrors on the web and in magazines.  HGTV has a cute one made from twigs (check it out).

I have tons of bamboo in my yard.  My husband and I are always trying to think of uses for it.  He's made flutes and uses it to tie up the tomatoes plants.

So today, my husband cut some stalks down for me.  Now I just need to go to Michaels  to find a round mirror, cut the bamboo into 15-18" pieces, then start gluing it to the mirror.  I'm putting some pictures here to prove that I really am starting the project.  We'll just have to see how long it takes for me to do it.
