21  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / I heart trees. on: September 17, 2010 02:52:24 PM
I really like trees and I like mosaics, so it seemed like a logical thing to do.

Here's the window pregrout.



I'm super serious when I grout.



My sister liked this picture of the nasty grout water. She just got a new camera, so I'm including it!



and finally the finished product!



Comments and criticism are always appreciated!

No need to ever wonder again why, something so random as collecting magazine clippings seems to relax you. You just proved its purpose. This looks like something you'd find in a specialty store for what I know would've cost alot more than you actually spent making it. MARVELOUS job Honey!!! I ABSOLUTELY adore it!!!

Thanks! I appreciate it!

How are you attaching the tiles to the table? I have glass glue that I use on windows and things, but I've never mosaic-ed something like this! This is great!

can you show us how did you put it together? i know some choose to use a oasis base to stick the stems into but it seems your method is different than that?

This was the third attempt at this actually. The first time, I thought I could attach the brooches to a round piece of plastic mesh. DISASTER. It wasn't even round! then the girls that get together with me for Crafty Tuesday and I tried to make two hemispheres. Bad idea too because there was a gap between the two halves. Finally, Jess (the most awesome crafty girl ever) thought it would be a good idea to start in the middle and work our way around. That was much more successful! We clumped the brooches together and then attached the clumps to each other along with adding some every once in a while to fill in holes. Every so often, we added strips of duct tape to hold pieces together and then we wrapped it again after they were all attached!


congrats!  I see you made it into the featured projects this week...I knew you would Wink...I have been linking this to everyone I know!

Have I said how much I love this? Cheesy

I just saw that! I logged on and saw my face on the homepage, which was weird and awesome! Thanks for linking! lol This is so exciting!

So very clever and gorgeous.  I may still make a bouquet just to put in a vase - it's too wonderful an idea not to plagiarize

I'd love to see yours! I've been pretty much obsessed with this idea since I saw a picture of one online somewhere. I wish this was my idea! lol

That is about the most tremendous bouquet I've ever seen! How neat that you used some jewelry from the groom's side of the family, too! Please PLEASE show us when it's finished!

I travel and play music on the road all over and people heard about my project and mailed me brooches from everywhere! This really has been a labor of love lol I'll definitely post a picture of everything put together. I'm planning on making a giant thread of everything after the wedding!

Are you going to make a mini one to throw to the single ladies?  You definitely don't want to throw that one! Cheesy
haha ya this one's not getting thrown anywhere lol I'll probably just use fake flowers or some of the felt flowers that I've made for the bridesmaids. The link is at the top of the post.

Yall are awesome! Thanks!

I hope you post photos of some creations on the big day, it'd be awesome to see all your creations together.

Oh don't worry! The girl who helped put all this together is also my photographer, so there will be a ton of pictures! I can't wait!

THis is awesome and creative.  Do you have any family heirlooms in the bouquet?
I don't know if they count as heirlooms, but my grandmother gave me some of the pins like the small clocks and the pearl wreath and the copper circle. Also, Jared's mama donated some of her mother's pins as well as her mother-in-law's pins who recently passed. Plus, some of her own. It's really been amazing all the people who have given me things for this. I love how everyone could be a part of this!
