  • it’s seasonal... Peppered with kitchen décor dilemmas? That means you need to start small! These plain glass salt and pepper shakers got a designer look in a snap with the help of our mosaic tiles. The tiles were clipped down to size with a pair of handy tile nippers, secured to the glass with tile glue, and filled in with white grout.

    knock on wood Unfinished wood pieces (available in the Craft Dept.) make perfect bases for a kitchen full of mosaic flair—check out this lid for a storage jar and kitschy oversized wooden spoon.

    mosaic magnets Keep to-do lists at bay with these handy fridge magnets. Artsy and fun to make, they're a great way to recycle leftover tiles and glass from other projects.

  • cherry charm... You can cherry pick your projects, but you won’t find any cuter than these! Use a variety of versatile mosaic gems to craft fruity little accents! We decorated a cutie-pie charger, a darling flower pot and even tiled a unique accent border to spruce up a lackluster backsplash. Tip: Add the cherries (or any other pictorial design) first, then fill in the background with pre-cut tiles.

    down to the letter Paper maché and mosaic—a perfect pair! These lightweight letters went from bland to beautiful with the addition of our vibrant square tiles. The silver tiles were clipped in half with tile nippers, and the rest of the tiles were added right out of the package. Best of all? We purposely placed the squares closely together, so there was no need for grout.

    picture perfect... Let your inner artist shine by adding stylized designs to your mosaic projects. We created this simple grape and leaf motif by placing mosaic gems to form grape clusters, and shards of tile to create the look of stems. Pre-formed glass tiles in shapes of butterflies and leaves finish off the design. Then just fill in around design with more tile shards, keeping colors tonal to accentuate your design. Tip: You can sketch your design in pencil first, if you prefer perfect placement.

    silverware caddy Here’s a classy spin on silverware storage! Cover a little caddy (available in the Craft Dept.) with a sophisticated mosaic design. This look features pre-cut tiles and ceramic flowers. The simple geometric pattern was a cinch to complete.

    coasters & tray Repeat the pattern (from above) on a set of pretty coordinating coasters. That’s right! It’s a blast to make mosaics in the round. And what will you use to carry your glasses from kitchen to table? A beautiful, hand-tiled tray of course! (You’ll find the cork rounds and unfinished wooden tray in the Craft Dept.)

    napkin rings Set your table with a set of unique mosaic napkin rings. This quick-as- can-be project is the perfect addition to a table full of mosaic accents. We carry the wooden rings in the craft department. Just add tiles, flowers, and grout for the look shown!
