6 Materials
1 Hour

A mosaic photo frame is a quick and easy creative project anyone can try and get really lovely results even if its your first attempt.

What you need is PVA glue. I use Uni bond and some assorted pretty glass mosaic tiles. I chose some sparkly ones and some different shaped tiles to add interest colour and texture.

Preparation for photo frame project

I begin by putting some pva glue onto the frame I bought from charity shop. I begin at the edge and choosing tile that fits the shape of corner.

Continue adding glass tiles in assorted colours and shapes to create pretty detail. I do not leave any gaps as there is no need to grout this.

      Thanks for comment and appreciation. It works with glass nuggets and any mix of interesting colours and textures I even remember someone using gold and silver spray painted pasta shapes!

    Love the frame and that you creatively just chose to mix all colors and a random or no pattern.

    You had a great choice of tile pieces. Super cute!!!!
