My mom (Craftygram) gave me a mason jar full of these little pieces of glass in all kinds of colors. So what did I do with them? I put them on the bottom of a tray and sealed them in there with resin!

Let me tell you, the photo does not do it justice, you can't really see the depth and the clear glass very well.



The tray is going on my vanity in my bedroom.  Smiley

I love it! I make traditional mosaics but I can never use glass as sharp as this.  Thanks for showing a great idea with that glass! It looks super.

That turned out fantastic PinkyK! The colors pop against the light wood.  Smiley

Glass I have left over from other projects go into containers that I later take out for smaller areas of mosaics, or smaller projects. Sealing them in resin is a great way to use them up also.

WYOKrista - Harbor Frieght has glass tumblers for $30.00, and they are well worth the money.

You're right HSG mosaics are also a great way to use scraps! The pieces were just so tiny that I kept pushing the jar full of them around my glass stash. I pulled out the biggest pieces and used the little ones in the tray.
