Does anyone have any ideas on how to repurpose tile offcuts?

Answered
I used the smart tiles (peel and stick) for s small backsplash under the mirror in the bathroom. The tiles come in square sheets and I had to cut one or two rows to line them up. So now I have strips of "tiles". Do any of you super crafty people have any ideas? I am not crafty but I can follow instructions.
q does anyone have ideas as to i can do with the offcuts, repurpose household items, repurposing upcycling, This is how the tiles come on a 12x12 sheet These are not real tiles They are peel and stick vinyl
This is how the "tiles" come on a 12x12 sheet. These are not real tiles. They are peel and stick vinyl.

    They look really pretty. You could add them around a bathroom cupboard, or even around a smaller mirror. Alternatively, if you got a small plastic container, either square or oblong (but not round) you could stick them on, and then use the container to hold various cups with your toothbrushes, etc. It would keep everything together and help reduce the appearance of clutter on the top.

    I have those also. Was thinking of dressing up a storage box. Originally I used them as a tile-like top on an end table

      I'll have to look around and see what I've got. They actually would match the colour scheme in the powder room too.

    Why not frame your mirror with them

    I can think of a few ways to use them in that room... if you were to change out you could adorn the new glass shades... make a cornice box for the top of the window and add them to that to tie in to the mirror decor...buy a small round or oval vanity mirror with an easel stand and use the pieces like a sunray effect around the mirror. ..... make a toothbrush holder....

    I used mine on some picture frames from the Dollar General Store. I found some with very wide borders and it turned out amazing! I used a glass score tool and a tile nipper to custom fit only a few pieces since most fit perfectly. I used a product in the tile section of Lowes that's used to stick tile but can also be used as grout. However, I wanted my grout joints to be black so I found colored grout and used it instead. Good luck.

      @Adrian This would be my suggestion too. Or on a towel bar if you do not alreafy have one, you could make one from wood and adorn it.

    I like that tile/vinyl l where do you get it?

    You could repurpose an old tray from the thrift store and tie the inside with your leftovers to make to contain small bathroom necessities & place on the bathroom counter.

    I've never seen tiles framing a window. Do you have any reference pics.

    print out your fav poem, cut the lines in strips to fit, paste onto individual pieces. I did this with a photo and a poem.

    You knowhow they do the twig Christmas tree? I'd stagger these tile pie r s the DE way and hot glue the Mardi Gras necklace from side to side ad tho they are a strand of tiny ornaments.

    You can get a square mirror and "frame" it with these off cuts. Or a picture frame.

    No suggestions, but I really like the way the tile looks under your mirror!

      Thanks. My 19 year old son even told me it makes the bathroom look high end.

    I use them on old cutting boards for decorative hot plates that match my backsplash.

      Hi DONNA. Thanks for the suggestion but these are vinyl so I don't think that would work.

    Like what it does to the mirror.....

    You could take a little square cardboard box that you can find in craft stores and use the tile on that and store your makeup brushes in it. If you found a square vase or candle holder (also in most craft departments and dollar stores, you could put tile on those and make a neat accessory for your bath.

    I made a soap dish for my bathroom. Make sure you put one in the middle to put the soap on......stops soggy soap. Also got a shadow box and made a design to hang on the wall to match the back splash.
