So anyhow, no new projects this week, however I did come across one of my old projects that I thought I'd share.
After the decadence of the holidays, I always long for simplicity and colors that are easy on the eyes. These glass mosaic votives are one of my favorite projects.
They look pretty during the day, especially propped in the window--
And they also look nice with some mood lighting
(or in this case, a battery-powered candle)
What You'll Need:
hand-me-down or goodwill drinking glass/vase
tile nippers (bought mine at Home Depot)
heavy rubber gloves to protect your fingers
goggles or glasses to protect your eyes from shards
Wash and dry glass
Wear goggles & gloves when "cutting" tile
Cut glass tiles with tile nippers (mine are cut into 3rds and 4ths)
Sort tiles by color
Use clear caulking to "glue" tile to glass to create your mosaic
Let dry for 24 hours
Grout project (follow instructions on box) and let dry
Wipe down project to get rid of grout residue
Hope you're having a great week! Still can't believe we're in 2011...
