My daughter and I have had lots of fun this summer creating mosaics for the garden as well as some fun coasters to use as gifts.
These bottles went from the recycling bin to great garden accents with some time and creativity. We learned that almost anything can be used for mosaics.
I started with glass bottles like these. I washed them and removed metal rings from the tops but did not even remove labels.
Next I used tile adhesive to attach pebbles or marbles or tile pieces.
Our grouting and cleaning "station" in the yard included all the essentials including grout, sponges, water and a cushion.
We grouted and added seashells, marbles, tiles, buttons, recycled materials, pebbles and more to many different surfaces.
My daughter's specialty was coasters.
Here the coasters are before the grout...
Here are many of her coasters after the grouting. She is very creative.
We even did eggs for the garden as well. Basically, if I saw it in the studio during the week, it got covered in something....Except family members and pets... Be sure to check out our posts for many tips and tricks we learned through our mosaic-ing journey.
