What you need (1) About 300 pennies per sq. foot (2) Weldbond Glue (3) Mosaic Tile Mesh (4) Clear Packing Tape (5) Scrap Cardboard (6) Latex Gloves (7) Cement board (8) Mortar (9)
Unsanded Grout (10) Polyurethane Sealant,
Visit the blog post below to download a printable template. Put the template onto the scrap cardboard and cover completely with packing tape (so the glue wont stick). Simply cut the mosaic tile mesh into 1 foot squares and lay it over the template. Use the weldbond glue to glue the pennies to the mesh -- make sure you use a rubber glove so the oils from your hand don't tarnish the pennies! After you create all your squares, the pennies can be laid just like any tile floor!
We have huge trees on 2 sides of our backyard which give us wonderful privacy but our 3'rd side was definitely lacking some! So, we added this framed wood lattice to the railing of our
deck and secured it with support boards in the back. Pots of jasmine put on each side have begun to trail up and wind their way around the lattice and hanging lanterns with an S hook (and battery operated candles) give off a soft glow on a warm Summer evening.Thanks for stopping by! ~Vanessa #PorchPride
