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.
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
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
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.)
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!
