Utensil Sunburst Mirror

I love IKEA!  I know it is not everyone's forte, but it is definitely mine. IKEA is where I found this mirror and a pack of utensils, (dirt cheap), to create this sunburst mirror.
First, I ripped the stand off of the back of the mirror.  The utensils were in a pack of 20 with only 4 butter knives. I began by finding the middles and hot-gluing the knives to the back. 
Create a pattern and glue the rest of the utensils onto the back of the mirror.
Where you removed the stand, thread ribbon to use for hanging your mirror. I added vinyl EAT letters.  Sidenote:  Wouldn't it be even prettier if I had spray painted the utensils white?
