In case you too are super slow on the trend, here's how I made it. (And I'm sure there is a better way, this was just my way...because I never think to google something when I'm in the middle of it wondering how I'm going to hold 26 shims together.) You'll need 26 shims, some stain, a small mirror (I used a 6 inch one) and some strong glue, lots of glue.
Step 1 - Give your shims a quick sanding to smooth them out a bit
Step 2 - Stain all sides of each shim
Step 3 - Let dry
Step 4 - Arrange 13 shims in a circle (thick side in) and place the mirror on top of the configuration to ensure it will cover all the raw inner edges
Step 5 - Use strong glue (I used E6000) to tack each side in place
Step 6 - Arrange the other 13 shims on top of the first layer and again, use a strong glue (really gobbed on) to glue the top layer to the bottom layer; let dry overnight
Step 7 - Cut a length of heavy cardboard (I used an old box), long enough to fit inside the inner circle formed by the shims
Step 8 - Dry fit the cardboard piece and trim the excess
Step 9 - More glue! Apply thick layer of glue to the cardboard and press firmly into the inner circle of the sunburst; let dry overnight
Step 10 - Glue the mirror onto the sunburst to cover the inner circle; and let dry for several days
Step 11 - Hang. We (and by we, I mean Hubs) hung the sunburst with a simple drywall screw. The recess of the inner circle provided a perfect hanger and it's light enough that a single screw should hold it.
